Announcement icon I am meeting with clients through teletherapy.
Kelli J Cummings currently has a waitlist for new clients.
I have worked with adolescents and adults as a counselor and as an educator for more than 17 years. As a therapist, I use a holistic approach to wellness with an eclectic incorporation of many techniques in mental health and education. I believe in empowering clients in determining their best use of resources to overcome obstacles and achieving their overall wellness and potential. I enjoy working with clients who are in transition - end of a relationship, loss of employment, heading to college - to name a few. These are stressful times, and I partner with clients as they navigate these changes.
I have extensive experience in career counseling and use of personality inventories (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator) in developing better self-awareness, knowledge of skills and preferences, and development of communication skills. Successful therapy, in my opinion, is a collaboration between therapist and client.
I blend experiences as an educator of adolescents and adults with mental health counseling. We all need to keep learning and growing, and I infuse this philosophy in my work. Life has taken me all over the U.S., from Pennsylvania to Virginia, Tennessee, Ohio, Washington, and now, Michigan.
