Life Coach Lacey Wa

Dr. David Kegley | Coaching & Conflict Transformation, LLC

David honed his skills during a 25-year career as a pastor. He was drawn toward practices that developed abilities in other people so they are better equipped to serve. This meant some serious training and development for him in the areas of Emotional Intelligence, Coaching and Mediation.

He especially enjoyed the way-of-being they promoted; namely one of peace… making-whole where there is chaos and conflict and helping people re-organize life toward creative and constructive ends.​

He enjoys coaching clergy and those in executive leadership positions. He loves to coach people through serious chronic illnesses like cancer because he’s been there himself and knows how much difference it can make. He’s learned how to establish a structure and process for people to transform setbacks and conflict into creative outcomes.
