Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Staff Therapist

Action has meaning only in relationship and without understanding relationship, action on any level will only breed conflict. The understanding of relationship is infinitely more important than the search for any plan of action. —J. Krishnamurti

Drawn to the intersection of spirituality and mental health, Kelly found the utmost joy in listening to people’s stories. She began her career serving as a student youth pastor and later worked as a community-based mental health counselor. As a clinical social worker, she has had the privilege of working with individuals, families, and groups. Her clinical focus is on trauma, childhood sexual abuse, attachment, and loss and bereavement. Some of the models she utilizes for treatment are cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, and internal family systems. She is also trained in EMDR, an effective treatment to help people recover from trauma and other distressing life experiences.

As part of her work, she is committed to working with individuals who identify as LGBTQ+ or anyone questioning or exploring their gender identity.

When Kelly is not working with clients, you will find her spending time (likely outdoors) with her family, friends, and opportunistic four-legged child, Riley.
