Kathy Kelly

(MSW, LCSW)

About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 20 years working as a school social worker. I have supported individuals and groups on a variety of issues including dealing with traumatic life events, managing depression and anxiety, building self-esteem, identity issues, and social anxiety. I have also helped teens with strategies to deal with ADHD, family conflicts, and relationship issues.

My counseling style is compassionate, non- judgmental and nurturing. I will vary my approach to meet your individual needs and preferences. I will work with you to develop clear goals for our counseling sessions and I will utilize behavioral principals, mindfulness strategies and stress management techniques to address your concerns.

Being a teenager during these challenging times is very stressful and can feel overwhelming and lonely at times. It takes great courage to ask for help and to allow yourself to trust another person with your feelings and concerns. I can promise you that I will do my best to support you with an open mind, confidentiality, and the utmost kindness and respect!

I look forward to getting to know you!
