A professional Healthcare Chaplain is a theologically educated, pastoral experienced, and clinically trained minister who is certified by a professional chaplaincy organization and serves as an integral member of the healthcare team. The chaplain’s primary role is to provide spiritual/pastoral care to patients/residents, their family members, and the medical staff. In addition, professional chaplaincy care provides emotional, religious, and ethical care.
Kelly serves as the chaplain at Evergreen Health Monroe. He not only makes rounds on the Medical/surgical Units, Emergency Room, and CCU , but he also provides a spirituality lecture at the in-patient recovery center and a grief and loss session for the IOP (Intensive Outpatient) group. Many of these patients request follow-up visits and counsel. Kelly offers grief and loss support to the community as well.
Adjacent to the Evergreen Health Monroe hospital is a psychiatric hospital- Fairfax Monroe where Kelly provides a weekly spirituality session followed by one-to-one support. In addition to Kelly's hospital responsibilities, he also provides a monthly chapel service for a the patients at Delta Rehabilitation Center (a nursing home for head trauma patients). Of course Kelly, the Singing Chaplain, integrates music into all these areas, which is much appreciated!

Life Recovery Coach
Do you feel "stuck" in a bad habit? Have you been deeply hurt and can't seem to get over it? Are you having a difficult time moving forward following a devastating loss? Then it is time to contact a life recovery coach.
Kelly Baughman- author of "Inside a Recovering Heart," could really help you as your life recovery coach. He brings to each client years of personal experience and professional training in dealing with habits, hurts, grief and loss.
“In many ways we are all in recovery. We are recovering from the effects of habits, compulsions, or copying behaviors we have dealt with our entire lives. We are recovering from a painful loss or a series of loss we have experienced along the way. We are recovering from the effects of our bondage to sin. We are broken people seeking to live a life of freedom, hope and wholeness.” –Kelly (“Inside a Recovering Heart”-2015)
What is it?
Coaching is about results, so you want to find the best person for YOU to be your coach.
This is not counseling, although counseling may be helpful to you in the process. In general, the coaching process is different than counseling in the following ways:
Coaching- future focused, goal setting, information/tools
Counseling-past focused, diagnostic/therapeutic
Throughout this process you will have a coach to teach you, guide you, challenge you, encouragement you and celebrate with you as you work through your recovery.
Most importantly, this life recovery coaching process recognizes your spiritual growth and character development as the key component in the recovery process-producing a change that will last.
What's the first step?
MAKE A DECISION!
Email Kelly to set up a phone interview. The purpose of the phone interview is to see if Kelly is the best person for YOU to meet your goals.
Cost: You will work that out with Kelly. He does not want money to stop you from moving forward in life.
This may be the beginning of a brand new start in your life!
