I simply do not distinguish between work and play.
-Mary Oliver

Hi, I'm Kay!

I specialize idea integration coaching. With over 1000+ coaching hours under my belt, I have helped clients from large Fortune 500 companies to small business owners unlock their inner leader and master emotional literacy. My approach is rooted in the belief that business development starts from inside you and that emotional intelligence is a critical component of effective, authentic business ownership.

As a coach, I work with creatives and small business owners to develop their presence and business confidence as well as unraveling the ideas in their head.  From here a plan of action is created and can become reality.

My full name is Kariman.  I go by Kay in my professional life. I have a unique perspective having grown up as the child of American archeologist parents who worked in the Middle East. Rather than following their lead and digging up the ancient past, I consider myself more of an emotional archeologist, helping my clients excavate their emotional landscape to uncover their true potential in life and business.

My own personal journey has also shaped my coaching approach. Because I have traveled a significant amount and have interacted with individuals all over the world, I have a deep comfort and ability to talk to anyone. I bring a combination of clarity and directness, along with high sensitivity and emotional intelligence to my work.

If you’re ready to finally get clarity and turn that idea into income, I invite you to explore my coaching services and see how I can support you on your journey.
