My Coaching Philosophy

Hi! I am Kaelysia Cooper, Founder of Empowered Coaching.

I coach, you do the work.

You are not broken, therefore I am not looking to fix your problems. I genuinely believe in your power to overcome any barrier you may face on the journey toward achieving your goals.

I believe coaching is a privilege. I strive for you to feel heard and seen. My coaching sessions are a judgment free zone. I may challenge your beliefs and will encourage vulnerability with powerful questions. You are always in control of the topic and how far we go.

I look forward to partnering with you on your coaching journey!

People who wait for a magic wand fail to see that they ARE the magic wand.

-Thomas Leonard

My Roots

I am originally from Louisville, Kentucky. People often ask me, how did you get to Baton Rouge? I answered the call to serve through developing people. I have 10 years of HR experience, including talent acquisitions and talent development for various education-focused non-profit organizations and governmental agencies. My professional experiences have taught me to get to know the whole person. I strive to incorporate this in coaching sessions.

When I am not working, I love making charcuterie boards, weight-lifting, going on outdoorsy adventures, and being a dance mom.
