Daring to challenge all matters of the heart

Welcome!Dr. Kerry McAvoy

I’m a writer, blogger, psychologist, mentor, coach, and explorer of all things related to matters of the heart

My preferred focus is on faith issues, my recent dating experiences, and past betrayal trauma. I prefer to take a vulnerable look at challenging topics from an expert perspective.  You can find them here.

Coaching Service for Writers

 Perhaps you are an aspiring writer but are unsure of what steps to take. I can help with personal coaching services.

Writing is a brave step. It requires the transformation of experience into descriptive words–a vulnerable process. Often there are concerns and fears, such as am I good enough, what will others think of me after reading my material, should and can I share this material.

As a retired psychologist and a self-published author, I have a unique familiarity with the confidence issues common to most writers. I can help you identify what is holding you back and together we will develop a road map so you can achieve your writing goals. 

I work on an hourly rate of $60 or a monthly package of 4-hour for $220.

Are you ready?

Email me and let’s begin this journey together.


I have loved working with Kerry! She has patiently given honest feedback on my writing and made suggestions for how to make my articles more accessible and interesting. She has also helped me to grow my audience. I highly recommend her for coaching services!

Loved it! It's uplifting, inspiring and I have come out of this study not only closer to my Heavenly Father but hopefully, a slightly better person then when I started it a month ago.

Kindle customer

This was my first time reading one of Kerry's devotionals and I was blown away by it! This devotional was so beautiful and it had me journaling in my prayer journal for hours.
