"Growth itself contains the germ of happiness." - Pearl S. Buck

Welcome! I’m Kelley Holland and I’d like to help you.

Are you interested in changing your financial life for the better? Are you ready to rewrite your money story? If so, you are in the right place. I have the great fortune to be a life coach specializing in working with women and teenage girls seeking a happy, healthy relationship with money.

Now, I may be a financial credit advisor but I’d be the first person to say money isn’t everything. The things I value most – family, friends, and community – have no price tag. But when you take charge of your money, you make the most of a tool that will help you in almost every part of your life.

Here are examples of what we can do together. 

Do you feel confused by your finances but unsure of how to get a grip? I will help you attain financial clarity and map out a plan.

Are you intimidated by looming expenses like college or retirement? I’ll help you set a savings target and take steps to reach it.

Is debt causing you stress? Together we can create a repayment strategy and a roadmap to get it done.  

And those are just the start.

Together, we can uncover the intangible money mindsets that may be holding you back, and find the inner strengths you can tap instead. Clients of mine say they have become capable stewards of their finances, skilled salary negotiators, fearless seekers of financial security, and sure-footed planners of the next phase in their lives. I’d like to help you achieve these things as well.

I have a graduate business degree from the Yale School of Management and I am a Chartered Financial Analyst. I also have an Advanced Diploma in Coaching from New York University, and I am a certified Positive Psychology Coach. I meet with clients in my home office, or by phone or Skype. If you are ready to lose your money gremlins and create a healthy financial life, or need personal budgeting help, please do get in touch. I am right here for you.

Here's What I Do

Individual Coaching

When you want a partner to cheer you on and help you realize your potential.


When you want small group sessions targeting money topics that matter to you.

About Me

Who I am, why I coach, and how I can help you identify and reach your goals.


I began working with Kelley because although my career was doing well I had a general feeling of being stuck. Through my work with Kelley we tapped into the crux of my situation and I quickly felt un-stuck. She was efficient yet patient and I felt heard and understood. As a result, I feel happy and fulfilled and I attribute much of that to Kelley’s coaching. She is a rock star!!
