Hi, I'm Kelly! As of August 2021 I do not have any openings, and given the small size of my practice I am unable to keep a waitlist.

About My Clients

My ideal client is looking for a safe space to just be. Therapy should be a reprieve from judgment and a haven for personal growth. I believe that everyone could benefit from therapy to recognize and strengthen their inner resilience against the ups and downs of our day to day experience. If you've been considering therapy to address anxiety, depression, or disordered eating I may be a good fit. I enjoy working with adults of all identities.

My Background and Approach

I have experience with a variety of presenting issues, and a background in both inpatient psychiatric treatment and a multi-disciplinary medical model, both with a focus on disordered eating. I am a firm believer in being direct and open with people. I don't subscribe to any rigid methodology, but rather use a variety of tools to help you move forward on your path. The therapeutic relationship is the most powerful tool we will utilize, and I know that centers on well-built trust. I enjoy using humor when appropriate, as laughter can be healing. Many principles from ACT and DBT find their way into my work, as well as a solution-focused framework.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am firm believer in the mind-body connection, and our work together will have a foundation of physical self-care in addition to emotional self-care. I do my best to be an open and judgment-free space for all, and will be honest about areas I have more or less experience in. My understanding should not be your burden, and before agreeing to work together we will discuss the potential for goodness of fit.
