This collaboration, called Beauty of the Beast, was shown at the Ohr-O’keefe Museum of Art in 2016 and solidified her desire to work in image transfer.

    Her photographs and mixed media work have also been shown at Studio Waveland in Waveland, MS, The Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, CO, A. Smith Gallery in Johnson City, TX, The Torpedo Factory in Alexandria, VA, The Gail Keenan Center at Coast Episcopal School in Long Beach, MS, The Greenhouse on Porter in Ocean Springs, MS The Samuel Marshall Gore Gallery at Mississippi College in Clinton, MS, The Eastern Shore Art Center in Fairhope, AL and at SlowExposures in Pike County, GA where she was awarded Third Place for her piece “First Position.”

    Meet Kahila Hedayatzadeh - Change Agent #0077 of our #SCN1000ChangeAgents Series.

    Kahila Hedayatzadeh is a trained psychotherapist and worked in the field for over 5 years before choosing to create a breakthrough coaching practice to reach more women in the world.

    Kahila’s life changed dramatically in March 2010 when her mother was diagnosed with stage III ovarian cancer. The cancer diagnosis was life-changing in more ways than one. Kahila became a full-time caregiver for her mother and embarked on a journey that set her on the path of her life purpose.

    Her purpose and mission became very clear through being a full-time caregiver as she recognized how much our mental (which included our narrative), emotional, and spiritual beliefs not only affect our behaviors, but it also affects our physical body and health.

    During this time she began and completed graduate school, married and divorced, and started pursuing her love of helping others heal.

    In the beginning of her career as a psychotherapist, she helped adolescents/adults step out of their darkness (suicidal ideations) and find their voice using modalities such as positive psychology and cognitive behavioral therapy. After losing her mother to cancer, she started her work with patients transitioning into end of life. As much as she loved her work, something was missing; and she knew she had a bigger mission in life. That mission was to help women stand in their truth and power. To know that they matter and that they have absolute control over their own decisions and life.
