Announcement icon Until further notice, I have moved to phone and video sessions only. I am not taking on new clients for long term therapy. Be well!
Kerry Pinnisi is not currently accepting new clients.
**July 2020: I am not currently accepting new clients.** My calling is to bring the best out of others, no matter if their best feels shrouded, and no matter how difficult the challenges. In my experience, there are limits to what can be achieved by banging your head against the wall with logic, technique and coping skills (though they have their place and I absolutely use them as needed). I help people learn to work with emotions and get to the core for lasting change, which is accomplished by creating the safe and secure environment critical for deeper insights and healing that endures.
Besides treating trauma & PTSD, as well as depression & anxiety, I’m skilled at working with people who occupy the in between spaces or defy categorization. I don't believe there's a wrong way to be human, which is why I'm particularly of service to the LGBTQIA+ community, polyamorous folk, millennials & college students, and other marginalized identities.
Investing almost three years at a community mental health center, I’ve successfully worked with a truly vast range of people and struggles. My feedback often includes comments like, “Sitting with you, I feel safe.” Those who experience counselling with me say they feel respected and seen as full of potential to be their best selves.
