I am happy to be here and provide coaching for those looking to make a shift in their life. Perhaps it's a life transition, grief, or some trauma that feels like it just doesn't want to go away. Working together, we will create positive change to live a happier life because YOU deserve to be happy.

I offer personalized coaching with or without a horse.

When I partner with a horse in Equine Gestalt Coaching, I work with my horse partner Cody. He's a 12-year-old quarter horse Paint. He's been doing this work with me since 2016.

Phone and Zoom coaching for those looking for coaching without a horse. You can decide which is the right coaching avenue for you.

Either way, I'm here for you! Together we'll discover what's holding you back and how you can channel your strengths towards getting what you want in life.

Life is too short to live unhappily!

Please call me for a free 30-minute discovery call and see if we are the right fit for your needs.

NOTE: The equine coaching is practiced at a barn in Ridgefield, WA. Therefore, you will need to wear appropriate layers for colder weather and closed-toed shoes. I offer pocket warmers and blankets during the colder weather. Bottled water is provided, and there is a nice shed with a bathroom. Zoom coaching requires access to Zoom.
My Practice Started in: 2016
A little about me:

I'm a retired long-distance runner turned cyclist after having cancer in my right knee 2018/19. I'm a horsewoman with four grandchildren, and after decades of teaching, training, managing, and coaching all fitness levels, I transitioned my career in 2016 and eagerly stepped out into the world as a Certified Equine Gestalt Coach through Touched By A Horse.

Later, I was certified with New Vibe Training to further my skills as a Life Coach.

My coaching includes partnering with horses to coach humans, corporate retreats with horses, women's horse retreats, workshops, and my signature health and wellness program, 'One Size Fits None.' You can find more information about this program at https://voniekalich.com/one-size-fits-none/.

I also provide phone and Zoom coaching.

Why I love partnering with Horses when it comes to horses, here's what I know: they hold space for us, and they willingly tell us much about ourselves if we listen. You learn more about yourself when you add a 1200 pound animal with no stake in the game. Unlike people, they aren't full of opinions, yet they show up. They provide a bridge to authenticity by helping you see what is not real. They aren't triggered like a human is. Instead, they want us to feel good, and then they feel good.
It is a large shed with hot water and a flushable toilet. Rare at some barns.
