Sometimes life can feel hopeless and the answers are hard to come by. As your therapist, I tune in to what interests and empowers you. This means using; empirically supported methods such as, art therapy, meditation, EMDR, Reiki, DBT, CBT, Yoga therapy, body-brain therapies and exploring skills you already possess to improve your life. At Kelley Counseling & Wellness we meet with young children, adolescents, teens, couples and families. I specialize in treating teens, adults and couples who suffer from; addiction, anxiety, depression, ADHD, trauma, mood disorders, depression, LGBTQ+, grief and loss and eating disorders.
I base our approach on your needs, ensuring a sense of safety and control over your treatment. Safety is paramount in treatments I offer, as I am an integrative, trauma therapist and am actively involved in research and implementation of trauma treatments such as; EMDR, Brain Spotting, IRT and Somatic Oriented Therapy, and Trauma Sensitive Yoga.
I specialize in art therapy, using the creative process to improve physical, mental, and emotional health while resolving issues, reducing stress, and improve self-esteem and awareness. It can be a fun and inspiring way to heal. Additionally I am a trained Yoga Instructor and can integrate therapeutic yoga into treatment at your request.
