I specialize in working with people in LGBTQ+ communities, addictions, borderline personality , complex trauma, and anxiety disorders.
I see therapy as a collaborative process exploring how the past informs the present and allowing trust and authenticity to foster insight and development. I strive to provide the highest quality of care, focusing on the unique needs of each individual and creating a safe environment with room for challenges, exploration, process, and growth. I help clients learn and practice skills for tolerating pain in times of crisis, responding instead of reacting, increasing self-respect, improving relationships, and participating fully in each moment. My ultimate goal is to help my clients build and nurture a life they feel is worth living.

I specialize in working with folks who struggle with borderline personality disorder, depression, anxiety, substance abuse and co-occurring disorders.
Hi, my name is Kelsie. For many of us, the response to painful thoughts, emotions and life events is to check out, numb, avoid or shut down. To me, therapy work is not about learning to get rid of all the "bad stuff." It’s about learning how to show up and keep going DESPITE the "bad stuff." I combine a warm and accepting style with concrete skills to help you regulate your emotions, tolerate distress, identify values and goals that make life worth living and challenge thought patterns that get in the way. Above all, my approach is collaborative: we will decide together what balance of those tools will work best for you.

Do/did you have narcissistic or borderline parents -- and trouble living up to their (or your) perfectionist standards? Do you often feel "not good enough," "bad," ashamed, guilty, or unworthy of love?

I often work with artists & creatives, folks in tech & business, those in care-giving roles, including therapists, & children/partners of people who exhibit traits of borderline & narcissistic personality disorder.
Psychotherapy has the greatest impact when it is collaborative and interactive. I aim to provide a safe, supportive, empowering space where, together, we can slow down & untangle the messiness of being human. Some of the goals of our work together will include: managing stressors, breaking old patterns, setting healthy boundaries, and weathering the upsets of life through mindfulness, co-regulation, and self-compassion. Therapy is about connecting to your strengths and learning how to integrate your experiences, including your traumas, into a fuller, more confident, and most authentic sense of self.

Borderline Personality Therapists
Borderline personality disorder is a chronic condition that may include mood instability, difficulty with interpersonal relationships, and high rates of self-injury and suicidal behavior. Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is characterized by pervasive instability in moods, interpersonal relationships, self-image, and behavior. This instability often disrupts family and work life, long-term planning, and an individual's sense of identity.
