Hi! I’m Kelsey (she/they) & I’m a Licensed Clinical Art Therapist from Portland OR working in Frederick with 6 years of experience with complex trauma in the US & Abroad. I help kids & teens work through the pain of trauma, grief, anxiety, self-esteem issues, depression, relationships & bullies, & toxic masculinity. Clients come to me wanting to manage tough emotions, improve communication, deal with conflict & find healthy coping skills to replace the ones they started using as a means of survival that maybe aren't the safest for them. My approach is warm, patient & empowering with a bit of sass & playful humor mixed in as a treat.

Life happens to all of us; stressors are inevitable, unresolved feelings may arise and it can all be just a little bit overwhelming. Despite our best efforts we may find ourselves overly stressed, alone, anxious, or just tired. Whether it’s dealing with a transition, a loss, a tragedy, a relationship, or just the daily highs and lows, we all deserve a place to decompress and process what life throws at us. Maybe this is a tough season for you, or maybe you just need support as you work on your goals. Therapy should act as both a safe space filled with warmth and compassion, and a brave space that challenges and empowers.

I know it’s hard to find the right therapist. As someone on my own healing journey, I understand the importance of working with someone who “gets” where you're at. I bring more than a decade of work as a trauma therapist to our relationship. If you have previously been in therapy or you’re simply struggling to let go of childhood wounds, I can help you. My specialization is treating adults with painful childhoods. This can include challenges with your mom, dad or caregivers, parental abuse or neglect, codependency, issues with trust, self confidence or self esteem.
