About Me

Hello!

My name is Kellie Kennedy and I'm a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of California. I have been providing mental health counseling for the previous 9 years, in a variety of settings. I have worked with individuals in the home and school settings, community settings, crisis facility, and detention facilities. I have supported individuals having difficulties with depression, anxiety, responding to anger, and trauma and abuse symptoms. I have also supported individuals through changing life stages, improving self-esteem, and conflict in relationships. I have experience supporting individuals from kindergarten through elder adulthood, and have recently provided support to early adolescent through early adulthood.

My approach in therapy is one of curiosity, compassion, and unconditional positive regard. I utilize techniques from cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness based therapy, and solution focused therapy. I believe in the power of the therapeutic alliance, and that you are the expert! I understand teenage years can be stressful, and they can also be a time of significant growth toward independence! I believe therapy can be beneficial at this time in one's life to explore their desires and support their growth. I appreciate collaborating with you on your goals for therapy, and learning about you to develop an individualized approach. I will support you in developing insight into the barriers to your goals, and provide you with tangible skills to reach your goals.

I look forward to connecting with you to explore your therapeutic goals!

I recommend Kellie to anyone dealing with any type of depression, anxiety, or any issues in general. She really helped me over the course of a little over 5 months to become a happier and more confident person in many ways!

Kellie has helped me work through both internal and external problems. She has helped me become a stronger woman, a better partner, and more loving to myself. We have used a variety of techniques; meditations, visualizations, breathing exercises, and other mindful approaches. I appreciate her ability to listen, her helpful suggestions, and her overall kindness and understanding. She is truly wonderful!
