Marcella Kelson

Always fascinated by the human experience, Marcella has been working in mental health for over 10 years. After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from George Washington University, Marcella went on to complete two subsequent masters degrees: Clinical Social Work from New York University, and Psychoanalytic Developmental Psychology from the University College of London. Marcella spent several years working as a psychotherapist at Mount Sinai Child & Adolescent Outpatient Psychiatry Department before becoming a life coach.


Marcella came to Handel Group® looking for a method that emphasizes integrity and accountability. “At first, the idea of telling the truth can feel scary, but I believe that happiness is a direct result of knowing and embracing your truth. That is when you free yourself to live the life you deeply want.” Marcella credits her fellow coaches at Handel Group® for helping her get clear on her own dreams and holding her accountable to realizing them. Marcella lives in New York with her husband, Dan, and their dog, Fritz.
