Hi, I'm Holly.
An ordinary woman, refusing to live an ordinary life!!!
Whattup Yo! Grab yourself a cuppa jo and let’s have virtual cawfee tawk!
Lemme Introduce myself.. my name is Humpty— ohh wait.. Stop! Co-llab-or-ate and listen… oops I did it again… OMWORD! It. Won’t. Stop. Sorry, I think of songs sometimes when I say something.. cause every rose, has its’ thorn.. I mean every phrase has a song!! If you do that too, we’re basically best friends now. Ok back to our introduction…
I’m Holly Mutlu– I’m an encourager of women! I do that through speaking, writing and now (ah-hum) rapping! Yep– at 47 years old I decided to write and record my first album ever. And it just happens to be hip hop. For years I lived my life by cultural “norms” and what I thought the cookie cutter life was supposed to look like. With all that weight of perceived pressure came the battle of depression, anxiety and fear. But a few years ago, I ditched everyone else’s expectations and started following God’s lead for my life… which led me to releasing a rap album. Just goes to show you that ANYTHING is truly possible with God!
Here’s the “professional” part of me.. I am a certified christian counselor, a life coach, speaker, the Author of “Joy Is My Jam,” Creator of Mutlu Life Academy, & a Jesus-loving Powerhouse! Yeah, I love me a whole lotta Jesus and the powerhouse part comes from His strength being made perfect in my weaknesses. I’m usually pretty transparent about my many weaknesses cause God shows up and He shows off the best there!
I intentionally create a place that is a judgement free zone! That’s right sisda! A place where you can dump anything and it’s in the vault without judgement… I’ve needed that in my life and so it’s my honor to create a safe space for my clients. It’s also something I cultivate in my online community! We ladies are here to support one another. Period. No matter what the struggle is. We also cheer for each other and celebrate together… You are encouraged to shine bright my friend!
Speaking of bright.
I do love bright colors as well as all things that sparkle and shine so there’s lots of that… also, I love dancing, watermelon, Mexican food and laughing a lot — really hard— like so hard I [might] pee my pants (good thing this is a judgement free zone!) I’m aging and my bladder is gets so emotional sometimes it cries!
If you haven’t noticed yet, I use lots of exclamation points!!! Hey, at least I’m not using all caps and yelling? Can I get a witness? ? I am easily entertained, I’m highly animated and quite loud! I LOVE to have fun!
My heart’s desire is helping amazing women just like you, unlock their Joy and walk in confidence knowing we serve a God who purposefully created each and every one of us with our own unique design. I feel like every woman (including you) should sparkle and shine in their own way!
Keepin’ it real is how I roll. I’m your typical wife, mom, and soul sister who refuses to be anything typical.
CAUTION: Hang with me long enough and you will start believing you’re worth greater things than what you’ve been settling for!
I don’t know where you are today… (other than somewhere out there reading this) But I know how you might feel… maybe you are somewhat comfortable in your life and feel happy, yet you still feel as if there is “more” out there. So while it all looks good on the outside and life still is full of laughter, there is still a void that is longing to be filled.
Or maybe you are feeling uncomfortable in life, like you’re just existing in this world and you’ve decided it’s time to live larger and go for you dreams. You want to take some risks to begin living a fuller, more fulfilled life.
Girl, I know you because I’ve been you! After the death of my father in law, in 2015, I realized how short life truly is. I decided I’d had enough of living a life of limitations and everything shifted! NEVER have I felt so free… and scared, but there’s so much freedom in doing things even when you’re scared! My goal is to encourage YOU to loosen up the lid and eventually take it off of your life and you can start taking (small) steps that lead to TRULY living a FULL life… the life that God desires for you! It ain’t easy, but sisda, it’s totally worth it!
Feel the Love
“Holly, I just wanted you to know that I am so GRATEFUL for you! I have been to numerous counselors and tried a multitude of things in pursuit of a better version of me….in hopes of clarity, in hopes of finally accepting myself as I am and YOU have helped me more than anything/anyone! The homework you have given me and the non-judgemental way that you speak to me has been amazing and YOU are a blessing!”
Where do I even begin? Holly helped me when I was in one of the lowest points of my life. She helped me with ways of coping with depression and anxiety. She has seen me grow from who I used to be, and almost 2 years ago, she officiated my wedding and came to the hospital when I had my baby boy. She is one of the absolute greatest person I’ve met.
I started seeing Holly during a very lonely and desperate period of life. I was struggling with some self-condemnation over my past. Somehow she brought me to a place where I could talk about it with less emotion and was able to find a new perspective leaving me whole and complete with a sense of worth and value. It was a healing process that was the catalyst to me finding peace. Being able to know I could count on Holly to listen and work through things – even in my most desperate hour – was the key. Holly made the time for those urgent breakdowns which was more powerful than having to wait a week to even get a reply.
