The decision to begin therapy can be an isolating and anxious time, especially in these current crazy times that seem to have no end. Am I the only one who feels this way? These feelings may even at times shut you down. You may be experiencing losses and transitions of all kinds, or have weight and eating concerns, gambling concerns, relationship problems or who just want career counseling. We can explore these together. I work with men, women , and adolescents of diverse backgrounds, who might not believe that counseling can be sensitive to their needs. We can either meet in person or online.

"I have a heart for hurting individuals and have always been told that I'm a good listener. I love working with women as I believe that as a woman I know and understand some of the struggles we face. I have a creative/artistic side that I try to bring into therapy which, especially in group work, keeps things interesting and helps present a unique perspective from which to view what might have become an old issue or one no longer noticed." Client comments: "Thank you for playing such a big part in my healing process" JB "You are a terrific listener and encourager! I believe that you were God sent to my husband and I." FD

As a Therapist and Certified Sex Therapist who specializes in life transitions such as marriage, divorce, and relational concerns, female /male sexuality, dysfunction/concerns, sexual trauma, and gender identity.
Life as you know it has changed. Whether it be suddenly or over time, everything that once was is no longer. You may be asking yourself; why me, how did this happen, am I the only one who feels this way, what, if anything could I do different, or can I actually feel better? Maybe you are telling yourself; I am all alone in this, no one will understand how I feel, I don't know where to begin and cannot imagine getting past all this. The feelings of sadness, anger, confusion, frustration or being scared are overwhelming. You're just trying to make sense of it all. It is a huge step to seek out support but you are here and not alone.

My client population includes adolescent girls and young women with a variety of issues; as well as couples and families.
The biggest compliment clients have given me is: "Kelly, you're not a typical therapist and that is so refreshing!" I am somewhat unique in my approach offering a combination of coaching, motivating, problem-solving, and goal formation. I tend to see myself as a guide (or passenger) while the client takes the driver's seat – together, we look at the map and find the most productive route to take towards the destination. I tend to have a lot of energy and am extremely active in and out of the therapy session.

Have you felt unbalanced and uncertain with new life transitions? Have you had a difficult time managing stress and anxiety? Dealing with difficult emotions that arise through challenging life transitions can negatively impact self esteem, relationships and work. You may feel isolated and confused when dealing with these emotions. Reaching out for guidance and support, while it may seem frightening, can allow you to regain a sense of self, balance, and joy in your life.
