**PLEASE NOTE: Dr. Kiely's practice is currently full, and is unable to accommodate new therapy referrals at this time.** Regarding neuropsychology, my expertise covers a wide range of neurological, medical and psychiatric conditions including traumatic brain injury, neurodegenerative disease and dementia, stroke, epilepsy, PTSD, and ADHD. I have advanced clinical training in a variety of settings including inpatient and outpatient psychiatry, epilepsy, traumatic brain injury, and memory centers. Currently, I am an attending clinical neuropsychologist at UCSF, within the Memory and Aging Center, Department of Neurology.
I create a safe and supportive environment for individuals who are struggling with a variety of life's challenges, including anxiety, depression, self-esteem, marital and relationship issues, life transitions, interpersonal and communication issues, gender and sexual identity development, and problems related to school or work. My practice focuses on teens, young adults, and adults. In my work with couples and families, I focus on improving communication and emotional connection. My non-judgmental approach allows clients to explore and discover their most authentic selves.
Growing up does not have to be unnecessarily painful or lonely. I help children, adolescents and young adults navigate developmental transitions with creativity and purpose. I also provide parents with education, skills and support to augment treatment. Young people often need guidance to explore their feelings, discover their unique strengths, and find meaning in their lives as they transition into adulthood. Challenges like family conflict, school problems, sexual confusion, depression, identity development, substance abuse, anxiety and stress can be greatly alleviated through the attentive support of a caring, unbiased professional.
My main focus is to provide a relaxed, safe environment that enables people to discuss their vulnerabilities regarding self and relationships. I work extensively with those who suffer from trauma, anxiety and depression often due to questions of self-worth, childhood traumas, major life transitions, and relational issues. Also, I have done research in the way of gender, sexuality, and shame in western culture.
Do you feel alone and not listened to? Find yourself withdrawing from your partner? Or angry about discussions that too often turn into arguments? I help couples rekindle the love and passion they once felt in their relationship. I believe that every person can both increase intimacy and develop personal strength in the context of a loving relationship. I have over 30 years experience successfully treating couples. I work colaboratively with you to set goals and develop solutions that take into account your unique needs.
Successful therapy is a combination of your life experiences coupled with my skill set in a caring, supportive environment. When you put those things together your life will begin to change in ways you have secretly hoped were possible. I often am asked how looking at past experiences and feelings can enhance our future. Basically, "why waste time looking backwards?" My answer is this: When we don't take time to reflect on unconscious patterns we often repeat them; even ones that don't serve us. It's time to break that chain.
I work with people who wish to change self-limiting beliefs and destructive behaviors. I'll assist them in becoming aware of triggers, habits and unexamined assumptions which keep them stuck in repetitive cycles. By developing insight and understanding, they're often empowered to make new choices that are more in harmony with who they are and what they truly want.
I believe that lasting changes occur through profound self-understanding and awareness. This can be achieved through a collaborative relationship where we talk and think together to gain insights and meanings. My role is to provide a safe environment where a trusting relationship can be built. By listening to your stories, I will help you process the thoughts and feelings that emerge in order to develop a deeper understanding of your past traumas, inner conflicts, and destructive patterns. These newfound insights will then guide you to make changes in your current relationships or life situations.
You are so worried about your child. She cries everytime you drop her off at preschool and she is so shy at birthday parties that she won't leave your side. You thought she would outgrow this, but instead she seems to be more and more afraid of things. She is happy at home, but she still follows you from room to room. You just want her to relax and enjoy her childhood. You remember when your child first started school, how excited you were! You thought she would soon warm up and make friends. You want to be able to pick your child up from school and hear from the teacher that she was just fine once you left. You want to hear about what your child learned, and that your child played well with friends.
Thank you for your interest in my practice. I have counseled children and adults from many environments including school settings, low income neighborhoods, and non-profit agencies. I use a relational and psycho-dynamic framework and cognitive behavioral techniques. Children, adolescents, and adults often struggle with the stress of family, school, relationships, and the work environment. I enjoy helping my clients develop strategies to cope with these pressures. My private practice serves children, adolescents and families, as well as child-parent dyads dealing with depression, anxiety, and recovery from trauma.
I specialize in working with individuals and couples who want help improving the quality of their intimate relations.

My main goal in the therapeutic relationship is to provide a safe, trusting environment where individuals can explore their feelings in their search for a more fulfilling life.
