Welcome to my page and thank you for visiting it on your journey to healing, balance, and overall well-being! I genuinely believe that finding the right-fit therapist is imperative in the therapeutic process. I place a large focus on developing the therapeutic relationship, as I believe that healing happens through relationships that are respectful, compassionate, vulnerable, and accepting of you as a whole, authentic person. I support individuals and couples in learning to trust themselves and the wisdom of their bodies to live expansive and joyful lives aligned with their values.

Identity can be a tricky thing. Who am I when others aren’t around? What parts of myself were assigned to me and which do I truly resonate with? And finally, how do I fit in relation to others? Whoever you are now and whoever you decide to become, it’s okay. I look forward to learning more about that person with you. Self discovery is an ongoing journey that happens no matter where we are in life, but it’s not always one we consciously get to choose. I enjoy and have success helping clients explore their needs, wants, and identities. Together, we question what to keep and what to change.

I work with motivated, loving clients and with folks who are ready to heal from childhood wounding. My clients engage in self-study, discovering who they are and how to love and re-parent themselves. I work with teens, young adults, and families. I offer parent coaching to parents who want to learn how to effectively communicate and intervene with their children. My style is warm, curious, direct, and relationship focused. In the course of our work together, my clients learn skills that are accessible yet powerful. I've been in the field over eighteen years and feel lucky to support such incredible people on their healing path.

Welcome! Please also visit my website at www josiekelly.com. I have been in private practice for over 40 years, helping people get free from pain that hinders happiness. I give clients tools to attain more refined states of balance, personal engagement and vibrance in their lives. The process of therapy is immensely creative and personally unique, and in its' special moments asks that we step into leaps of faith of being with our present experience. The benefits are priceless. Depression, anxiety, not having a sense of self, destructive thinking, procrastination, poor relationship quality are all within our control to change.

Hi and thanks for reaching out. It takes courage to click on a therapist's profile and I am excited for you that you did just that. We all need help from time to time and asking for it is so important. Maybe you are feeling anxious or depressed. Maybe life after COVID is harder than you expected. Or, maybe you have some issues that have dogged you your whole life and you are fed up with them. Whatever is going on for you right now, having a trusted sounding board, someone to listen to you and help you figure things out is a great idea. I’d like to be that person for you. So, who am I?

Asking for help is hard. However, once you take that first step, it can be life-changing. Anything is possible by learning practical communication skills and building a positive self-view. My approach prioritizes my client’s needs and input to help them help themselves. I hold degrees in psychology and Biology, which provide an awareness and understanding of biological, chemical, and psychological intersections for mental health treatment.

Does it feel like something is off in your life? Maybe you have reached major milestones, or find yourself overachieving, but still question your sense of self and self-worth. Sometimes our past experiences are influencing the way that we relate to ourselves, and others. If you are curious to make those connections, and create new ones, I can help.

People are my passion! Is life for you or your child not going the way you'd like? In a supportive and confidential environment we can work together to identify the obstacles that are in the way of life being all that you want for yourself, your relationships, or your child. There are many approaches to psychotherapy, but research indicates that the patient-therapist relationship is a crucial factor. The beginning of therapy is creating that relationship and building trust. My focus is the present but I use the past that lives inside you to free you from its influence.

Therapy can provide a safe space for individuals to explore vulnerable dimensions of oneself and explore meaning in life’s experiences. Therapy with me is rooted in relationship. I understand that value of a trusting, authentic relationship between therapist and client, and I offer insight, support, compassion, and curiosity in a nurturing way that allows clients to examine patterns that both aid or hinder individuals’ potential for wholeness. I work from a depth-oriented, psychodynamic framework, understanding that one’s self is a manifestation of one’s whole life experiences. I provide both short and long term therapy.

Life is filled with challenges that affect each of us in different ways. I believe that how we approach and overcome those challenges helps shape us and allow us to experience life to the fullest. I began my psychotherapy practice out of a desire to use my life experience, education, and passion to help serve others in their healing journey. Through my clinical experience, I discovered that building a supportive relationship through therapy creates a safe place to explore life struggles, understand difficult issues, learn new skills, enrich relationships and work through situations to lead a more authentic life.

Your past pain is real and it is common for that past pain to hurt in the present. You don't have to "just accept it". I have success working with clients experiencing trauma, anxiety, depression, ADHD, domestic abuse, maternal mental health issues, family discord, and also have extensive experience working with children, adolescents and families. My clients trust that I can help them over come whatever their challenges are. One of my passions is Prenatal Bonding and psychology, enhancing the bond between mother and child to improve birth outcomes and reduce difficulty in delivery.

If you are suffering from repeated patterns that are negatively impacting your life and desire freedom and space to heal and transform these patterns, I can help. I work with individuals, couples, groups and families who are overwhelmed by anxiety, suffering from depression, in a life transition, managing grief, having existential distress, and/or looking for deeper meaning and a stronger sense of Self. Often times being seen and understood by a nonjudgmental, compassionate therapist is a key factor in healing. The process is rich and ultimately empowering.

In Network with OPTUM, Oscar, United Behavioral Health. (online virtual counseling only) When someone is in conflict, some common false beliefs that may be getting in the way is the belief that my feelings, my worth, and my value come from outside of me, therefore someone else should take care of me. As a result are power struggles in which each person tries to control the other. The way out is to change the system by changing those beliefs. It is only when love becomes appreciation instead of dependence on the other person that this will happen.

I am committed to helping clients formulate and realize their goals for their lives and relationships based on the values that are important to them. Grounded in research and clinical experience, I view the therapeutic relationship as an active partnership through which I assist clients with better understanding themselves and the ways in which they relate to others and the world. From there, I work with clients to identify opportunities for change and to develop and implement new tools in line with their distinct objectives.
