“Being put in touch with Keith was a life changer for me! I was recommended from a friend and am grateful that Keith and I crossed paths when we did! I am a Marine Corps veteran with 2 deployments, one of them being to Afghanistan. Being a part of the world’s fiercest gun club does things subconsciously that stick with you for the rest of your life. Keith helped me uncover those things and made me feel less guilty for holding it all in. He made me feel heard for the first time and I been to therapy with the VA hospital many times before and always left because it just didn’t feel genuine. Keith takes a genuine approach to healing and helps you see what the root cause is and expands on your perception towards your life. The BIGGEST takeaway from our sessions is that he helped me rediscover myself. I felt lost for years due to depression and anger issues, leaving me stuck in cycles of emotional traumas. But Keith helped me find myself again by emphasizing my core values I held and redefining them based on my present self and WHO i want to continue to become. I still think about those things till this day because it truly impacted me deeply. I would HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend speaking with Keith if you are looking to unlock your potential and create deep belief in yourself to succeed and change!”
“I’m not really sure where to start with Keith. I had this conversation with him just not too long ago and I owe all of my success, mentally and even financially all to him. To keep it short, I was in a deep and dark spot 3 years ago and i really thought i could never recover from so much loss. Mental loss, physical loss, financial loss…but loss that wasn’t even important and it wasn’t until now that i’ve realized i’ve never been thankful for life. I thought I had it all to be honest, I worked for a law enforcement agency, I drove my dream jeep, I was financially (what I thought) sustained but I couldn’t stop wanting more. I was so unhappy with the life I was living that I saw no good in it. I then started to take my doubts and made them my realities. I took my fears and made them hold an existing place in my mind that would constantly take over from day to day. I would wake up in a mental pit, almost so realistic in a way. Nothing in my life was really worth living for at the time and I still thought “I had it all.” Until I really didn’t.
I knew I was facing something deeper than just my emotions. I could tell I was broken but I didn’t know why. I didn’t want to turn to a “therapist” because if I told them how I TRULY felt they would’ve probably prescribed me some bullshit meds to just numb my feelings. I’ve known Keith for a while, prior to him becoming my mentor in life but i was always so scared to turn to him. I was very aware of the miracles he’s worked but i was afraid of the judgement, the criticism, the “wtf are you depressed about” comment. But, I remember calling Keith and saying…”I know it’s been a while since we’ve talked but I don’t know who else to turn to” and he listened…for 2 hours. He gave me insight on life; insight that was right in front of my eyes. I will never forget that day because from that day, from that minute, my life took a turn in a direction i wasn’t ready to face; reality. MY reality. And that’s what he showed me. He opened my eyes to what my life could be and he showed me the way. What I loved is he didn’t do the work for me. He pushed me in a direction nobody has pushed me in before and truthfully it’s an unexplainable experience. I have learned things from Keith that I don’t believe anyone else could teach. There’s something about him that only he can do and I truly wish that everyone has the privilege to experience.”
“Keith honestly changed the way I think about my life. I haven’t been genuinely happy for a long time now, and I can honestly say I’m feeling great lately. I’m excited to wake up in the mornings and be productive; I used to lay in bed for as long as I could wallowing in my depression and anxiety. Keith was very open and understanding when I talked to him, I truly felt like I could tell him anything with no judgment. He gives amazing advice/insight, and he cracks jokes at the perfect time to lighten the mood. All around, Keith is a great coach and an even better guy. I definitely recommend talking to him if you’re struggling in any capacity, as my mindset started to change even after meeting with him the first time.. “
“I started working with Keith as we shared a common comradery of the military. I am a veteran and had been in “recovery” on and off for years in Veterans Administrative Hospitals. I was diagnosed with PTSD and anxiety, and have lived with it for over 10 years. I would see therapists, psychiatrists for well over 10 years, that would diagnose me with multiple disorders, where I did not even recognize myself, and thought I was broken and they must know better than myself.
Every time I went to another therapy appointment and group session, I felt worse off than before, and was just trapped in a vicious cycle of defeating thoughts within myself. I set out and accomplished my goals of education, having the great corporate job, taking care of my body, but not really taking care of my health internally.
The VA would prescribe pills, and I would wash them down with alcohol, only to wake up and start all over. I felt entirely alone even in the wake of having a big social circle. I could see myself being taken advantage of by friends and really lost my voice of power. I was in such a state of suffering that I was creating myself. When I met Keith, at CrossFit, I knew I was ready for a change and to take my power back that I always knew was there, but found it hard to speak to.
In working with him, everything changed in such a drastic way and there was light the first time in years. Not the temporary happiness that I would seek with buying things that would go away, but a brightness that I saw within myself. With his coaching, I started to get my voice back. Friends that were taking from me, went away, and I wished them well, as I was not that person anymore to be taken advantage of. Gratitude became my point in reflecting upon myself, my way of being, way of thinking, and way of living again.
I became alone with my thoughts, and I did not shy away from them, but instead focused on the meaning I would give things. My smile became bigger, my voice become louder, and in the storm of myself, I found light that was always there within myself. I now know how to face the good with the bad. Keith helped me find the tools to know what I need to do to help myself, and it feels SO great!
I am happy, healthy, beautiful, and have such a love for myself inside and out, and I want to thank Keith for working with me, and making me see what he knew was there all along. I was never broken, but needed that push of how much beauty there is inside and all around me through practicing selfcare and gratitude. Thank you! I am forever grateful.”
