About Me

I am a licensed mental health counselor working in the state of Florida with over 8 years of experience. I have 5 years of experience working with the teen population in such programs as Outpatient, School Based Therapy and CAT Team, which is an intensive program for high risk adolescents. I have worked with a wide range of issues relating to depression, anxiety, anger, grief & loss, trauma, abuse, addiction, relationships, family conflict, blended/foster family, school, life changes, self-harm, suicidal ideation, self-esteem, felony/probation, LGBTQ, gender identity... and so much more.

My counseling style is unique, because I focus on the relationship with my client. I believe that once a genuine connection is established trust can then take place, and the sky is the limit on what can be accomplished at that point. Without a connection, there is no foundation to stand on. My clients have described me as "very easy to talk to." My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, client-centered, solution-focused, mindfulness and motivational interviewing therapies tailored to meet my client's needs.

I became a counselor, because I truly care about people. I meet my clients where they are at and without judgement. I am a survivor of my own traumas, and am solid proof that it does not matter where you came from and what you've been through in life, you can still have the life you so desire. All that matters is where you go from here. I whole-heartedly believe that there's a better life out there for everyone if 1) you truly want it , and 2) you are willing to put forth the commitment and effort it takes in order to achieve it.

"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." - Lao Tzu

I look forward to working with you! :)

Kelly is very good at what she does. She connected with my daughter almost immediately, and started to help her . My daughter has been to several different therapists and has never responded so well before. I think Kelly really cares and helps my daughter trust her which is super important! I highly recommend her!

Kelly has been very helpful at helping me refocus my grief into more constructive and positive emotions. When I started therapy, I was floundering, drowning in sorrow. Talking with her helped me take control of my responses to that grief. She was easy to talk to, supportive, and understanding. This was my first time experiencing therapy, and it's definitely been a positive one. Thank you, Kelly!

Thank you for your advice and positive energy, it would be so hard for me to express myself towards my problem, but Kelly did an amazing thing was to create a cosy, warm atmosphere so that I could open myself to share more, and to move from my past trauma.

I like how Kelly always encourages me to speak my heart out. She is the reason why I feel so good about the person I am and I genuinely think that she can literally help anyone get closer to their true authentic voice, the one filtered by the external noise

Kelly and I have really clicked and I am very comfortable relaying my thoughts and emotions. I am very pleased so far!

So far my experience with Kelly is she very positive. She has worked with me over the phone and is willing to plan around my comfort and speed. She periodically checks in between sessions as well which is much appreciated ☺️

I've only had on session with Kelly, my fault not hers. But she has been amazing so far, very supportive and very sweet. I feel listened to and I don't feel pushed to talk about things or feel rushed to get anything out and that she has the time to spend with me.

Appreciate this opportunity, excited to work some stuff out.

Written by P.E. on Sep 12, 2021 after therapy with Kelly for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, anger management, and coping with life changes

Kelly has been spectacular. I feel I can already trust her after only a few sessions. She is extremely responsive and I LOVE that she sent me check-up messages when I was struggling to find time to crate an online entry! It is very much appreciated to know she is looking out for me, even when I feel I cannot find the time to do the same for myself. I suspect that I will be reviewing Kelly as high as possible after some future sessions. At this point we are still telling stories and having conversations (exploratory sessions), I look forward to some hard feedback and direction on WHAT I can do to make positive changes!

Kelly is very lovely and kind. She also offers help and messages outside of the face to face online session which is great
