About Me

Hi, I'm Kelli and I'm a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in California. I have provided therapy services in Utah and California, and have been doing so for the last 4 years. I specialize in work with adolescents and families. I am passionate about my work with adolescents; I find it incredibly rewarding being able to help them through a difficult time in their lives and be that support that they may not otherwise have. Being a kid can be hard! I value the opportunity to empower my clients and help them to be their best selves. It is so important to me to be able to help break the stigma that is surrounding mental health, and help others to see that it's okay not to be okay. I also find it beneficial to provide a casual atmosphere for my clients to feel most comfortable; it allows for a more open dialogue and more effective treatment.

I have worked in a variety of settings, including; residential treatment centers, day treatment facilities, psychiatric institutions, outpatient facilities, private practices, and most recently in a high school. The age ranges in each of these facilities has been between 5 and 18 years old. My primary approach to therapy includes; Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and a Family Systems approach. I have worked with adolescents suffering from a wide range of mental health disorders, including, but not limited to; depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, trauma, abuse, self-esteem, major life changes, behavioral disorders, attachment issues, parent-child relationship issues, oppositional defiance, substance abuse, ADHD, and Autism Spectrum disorders.

Kelly is super supportive and understands me even when I don’t have the right words. She guides me when I’m really confused or struggling. She doesn’t judge me and I can count on her expertise.

Kelli is straight and to the point and is quick to reply. She checks up on me if it's been a few days with no contact.

Kelli is fantastic and knowledgeable at what she does. On top of that, she is incredibly passionate about each of her clients and goes above and beyond to make sure they succeed and find answers to their questions. I highly recommend Kelli to anyone who needs guidance in their life and the structure to send them in the right direction. Kelli offers many exercises and worksheets to help you understand yourself better and reach your goals. Not to mention, Kelli is very easy to talk to and offers a safe space to openly talk about problems or even share a highlight of your day. I've literally laughed and cried with her! Highly recommend Kelli!

Written by S.H. on Jul 09, 2019 after counseling with Kelli for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

Kelli takes the time to hear me explain my situation and thought process, and she offers guidance which takes into consideration my emotions and the full picture. I feel zero judgement from her responses and that has made my experience on teen counseling beneficial. I also appreciate her timely response, especially on an online therapy service.

I’ve only had a few sessions with Kelli so far, but she is amazing! I feel like she understands me and validates my wide range of feelings and emotions. It took me three therapists before finding her. I’m glad I stuck with teen counseling and matched with her.

Kelli is an intellectual and caring person and knows how to dig into the root of the issues without pushing someone to be uncomfortable with it. She also treats me personally like a normal human being, which is what I’ve been looking for in a counselor; someone who sees me as a person who needs help, not a nutcase on the verge of breaking down. Would definitely recommend.
