What's up! My name is Kary Youman, and welcome to my website. I'm on a personal mission to empower and inspire others to live their best lives through the virtues of kindness and mindfulness.
I was born in Los Angeles, CA, raised in Atlanta, GA, and grew up in Northern, VA. I currently reside in Portland, OR. With over a decade of experience in personal/professional coaching, positive psychology, public speaking, diversity & inclusion training, and mindfulness practices, I’ve had the privilege of collaborating with and helping people from all walks of life overcome limiting beliefs that have led to transformational changes personally and professionally.
Over the years, I've been challenged and experienced defeat many times. As a result, I have enjoyed the lessons and health benefits of being sober from alcohol for nine years (and counting), quit smoking cigarettes, attracted my dream career, and had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to share my story at TEDx Portland in 2019.
I don’t claim to have all of the answers, but I feel in my heart that my life experiences have given me the gift of humility and perspective to help my clients discover their purpose and create a more meaningful life.
I’m available for individual coaching sessions or interactive workshops with organizations and non-profits looking to develop a heart-centered culture. If you’d like to connect, please book a complimentary discovery session or message me on any of the social media platforms I have listed below.
I appreciate you taking the time to visit my website and look forward to supporting you on your journey. Onward and Upward!
Let’s spend 30/60 minutes on the phone, or virtually, to discuss your goals, core values, and dreams. With this information, we can determine if we're a good fit and begin to build the foundation for your transformation.
How will you choose to show up for your family and the ones you love around you? In this moving talk, Kary Youman thoughtfully and courageously calls out the elephant in the room to create space for the truth so that he can reconnect the dots to his family tree. His idea is that the greatest gift we can offer our families is the healthiest version of ourselves.
