About Me

Thank you for visiting my website!

I am Dr. Michele Kielty

I’m a Professional Consultant & Coach. I hold a Ph.D. in Counseling and have over 20 years of experience in the field of counseling as a consultant, coach, and counseling professor. I am an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) through the International Coaching Federation.

I am personally and professionally dedicated to working with the intersection of mind, body, and spirit for optimal happiness and success.

While life itself can affect us in many ways, we can also intentionally shape ourselves and influence our internal and external environments.

As we go about setting intentions for our lives, we have a better chance of being who we want to be, achieving the goals and dreams we desire, and feeling happier in general.

My work builds on the strengths and capacities of my clients, empowering them to take meaningful and lasting steps forward. I use various tools ranging from positive psychology and mindfulness-based approaches to career success and leadership frameworks.

Workshop & Coaching Testimonials

What Our Attendees Are Saying

Bruce Blair Executive Director, Mental Health America of Augusta

In a group of very diverse non-profit leaders, Michele was able to deliver information and assist leaders in developing the necessary skills to promote healthy communication and effective working relationships. She not only provided excellent data, but also practical strategies and methods to use with their respected teams.

Attendee Mindfulness for Busy Leaders workshop

The most valuable part of Michele’s workshop for me was developing the skill/habit of being able to observe thoughts/emotions/situations in the moment and to pause enough to make an intentional decision on how to respond to clients and/or co-workers.

Chapman Hood Frazier Professor in Residence in Prince Edward County

Michele did an excellent job of working with a large group of teachers to present introductory information on Mindfulness. She was accessible and collegial and worked well to address their questions.

Attendee Mindfulness for Busy Leaders workshop

Michele did a great job sharing her expertise, providing real life examples from her own life and creating space for participation from all in attendance. She also exhibited very good listening skills and responded in a way that affirmed the value of each person's contributions.

Attendee Mindfulness for Busy Leaders workshop

As a result of Michele’s workshop, I will be trying to make a practice of implementing a one-minute breathwork break a couple of times a day. I am ready to practice observing what's going on around me rather than letting it control me & without feeling like I have to "fix" everything.
