Kelly Richey


Kelly Richey is not only an award-winning blues musician, poet/songwriter and guitar teacher; she is also a life coach, writing facilitator, spiritual director, and inspirational speaker. She has made and continues to make her mark on the world through the power of her voice – both figuratively and literally. After a lifetime spent sharing the power of her musical artistry, Kelly’s journey and personal transformation, lead her to the healing arts. Now with over a decade of experience, she is committed to supporting clients on their path towards wholeness.

In 2009, Kelly officially began her journey as a life coach with certifications as a Dream Coach and True Purpose Coach. This is where she was finally able to start on a path that had been calling her for so long – coaching and the healing arts. Over the past ten years she has worked to expand her training and deepen her experience in these fields.

In 2015, she graduated the WWf(a)C Conscious Feminine Leadership Academy and began to weave creative writing practices into her coaching and healing arts practice. Expanding on her years of experience as a touring artist, Kelly founded Women Writing for (a) Change + Mobile, an affiliate school that takes the WWf(a)C circle practices wherever she goes. Kelly’s unique writing programs will help you to strengthen your spiritual core while exploring the power of self-care. These programs invite you on a journey to a greater sense of purpose and self-worth. Using Women Writing for (a) Change® practices, you will focus on writing both during and outside of class as a means of discovery and affirmation of who we, as individuals, truly are.

In 2019, Kelly completed her training in the Art of Spiritual Direction at Wellstreams, through the Spirituality Network in Columbus, OH.  Through this work, she practices the deep, healing art of listening and reflection. She is present with directees as they “travel” on the inner journey to explore and deepen their relationship with the divine. It was through this work that inspired Kelly to become a Health and Wellness Professional; a program Kelly credits with reviving her own journey to self-care and balance. Trained by the International Association for Wellness Professionals, Kelly works with clients, using the Wellness 360 approach, to help them achieve a balanced, holistic life.

Fast forward to today, after two years of development, Kelly has teamed up with Tamara White and established Self-Care Providers as a home for her Healing Arts practices.  Self-Care Providers offer programs that foster professional development, motivation, and mindfulness practices for groups and individuals alike. Kelly incorporates elements of her life coaching, spiritual direction, and her own inspirational journey.

Developed and delivered with the support of Nurse Practitioner and Registered Yoga Teacher Tamara White, the Power of Self-Care Lunch & Learn program is CEU-eligible and offers simple, healthy, compassionate practices for busy, burnt-out and stressed employees.

Today Kelly continues enjoying her first passion of teaching, playing, and recording music, in addition to her well-established work in the Healing-Arts.
