Is something keeping you from being the partner, parent, friend or family member you want to be? When you're feeling sad or nervous or if you're struggling with a troubling memory it can be hard to be the person you always imagined you'd be at this time in your life. I want to help you hold the weight you're carrying and figure out what it is that's holding you back.

Hi, my name is Kelli and I am a Pittsburgh native. My passion is helping people build insight, heal, grow, and proactively improve life using an integrative approach that combines a psychoanalytic, cognitive, emotional, and mindfulness-based process. I meet clients where they are at and guild them to where they would like to be. I want to empower my clients and advocate for them throughout the therapeutic process. At the end of the day, I feel that each person is the expert on their own self, and at different seasons in our lives, we all need extra support and validation.

My background includes diverse roles working with adult populations, and also teaching as an adjunct instructor. My research interests have included studying music and emotion.

If you’re looking for a therapist, you're ready for something in your life to change. Are you tired of trying to figure things out on your own? Are you struggling with your important relationships? Do the people you usually turn to for guidance no longer seem to know how to help? Whatever brought you to this point, your regular ways of making yourself feel better are no longer enough to restore your peace of mind. You don’t need to deal with all of that alone.

Are you struggling to find hope and meaning in a stressful world? Is it difficult to focus and make space for reflection? My approach to psychotherapy is primarily informed by relational-interpersonal theory, drawing from elements of existential and somatic practices. These approaches to therapy inform my belief that we can heal and grow when we are able to increase awareness of our experience, make meaning, and strengthen our relationships with ourselves and others. I emphasize community as crucial to a fulfilling life, and am passionate about helping people work through conflict with others with compassion and honesty.

Ideally, I work best with adults struggling with mood disorders, anxiety disorders or relationship problems. Issues I support are that of developing stronger interpersonal social rhythms, development of effective coping skills; using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness Based Therapy, and improved sense of self efficacy. Clients who are able to identify strengths that help them in their recovery, and deficits in their recovery can begin working with myself in setting goals that are specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and time bound.

At the core of my work as a licensed clinical social worker psychotherapist is awareness of human suffering in ourselves and in the world and dignity and respect of each individual. I understand that personal growth and individuation are continuous throughout life regardless of past circumstances, current struggles or future aspirations. Some problems are readily resolved by meeting once a week. When comprehensive change is desired I use an analytic method (free association, dream work, relational analysis) meeting 2 or more times a week which can free up energy, bring new perspectives, and change unproductive personality patterns.

Choosing a therapist is is hard, especially from a website. I hope these statements are helpful to you in making that decision. In general, I think of most issues as combinations of individual, biological, and environmental factors interacting in ways that cause problems in several aspects of our lives (work, relationships, health, etc.). Our work together includes attention to those interactions, figuring out how to intervene when they cause difficulties, deciding whether our interventions work, and adapting them to make them better. Our basic tools: developing therapeutic trust and maintaining treatment goals.

Trauma can create a feeling within us that others won't accept us, see us or feel what we feel. It can leave us feeling scared, alone and judged. Life stressors can develop creating a mountain that seems too big to climb. Trauma can create a space where you don't have the words to describe what your are feeling and experiencing. You don't have to have the answers. Therapy is a journey of discovery and an experience of acceptance and safety. Healing occurs when we recognize where we have been and create new paths for our lives. I accompany people on their journey towards healing.
