Professional statement

Darcie Kelly is a seasoned Clinical Social Worker who specializes in online therapy with adults. With years of diverse experience under her belt, Darcie is attuned to the nuances of trauma, body image, anxiety, and depression. She has a particular affinity for working with women, especially those grappling with the aftermath of trauma. Her expertise is further deepened by advanced training in Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

At the heart of Darcie’s therapeutic approach is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), with a focus on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), mindfulness, empowerment, and solution-focused techniques. Sessions with Darcie integrate anchoring exercises, movement, and psychoeducational activities. Central to her approach is understanding the body's nervous system and its response to trauma. As a result, clients are equipped to tackle deep-seated fear and shame, fortify boundaries, cultivate emotional connections, feel empowered, and lead lives more in sync with their inherent values.

The ambiance in Darcie’s sessions is characterized by a friendly, non-judgmental, and present demeanor. She believes in nurturing a robust working relationship from the outset, providing clients with a sanctuary where they feel at ease to share, and allowing them to dictate the pace of their healing journey.

With an MSW from Walla Walla College, Darcie's professional journey has encompassed roles at multiple residential treatment facilities, specializing in the care of teens and tweens. Additionally, her tenure at Fort Harrison allowed her to work closely with soldiers, deepening her insights into the multifaceted nature of trauma.

Beyond her clinical role, Darcie is passionately committed to being an ally to marginalized communities, dedicating time every day to personal growth and introspection. She finds joy in cooking and baking, cherishing moments shared with friends and family. In consideration of the evolving digital age and to cater to the diverse needs of her clientele, Darcie exclusively offers sessions online.


Message to clients

Welcome to this new chapter in your journey. Guided by values of kindness, compassion, patience, humor, and empowerment, my goal is to offer a space where you feel genuinely heard and empowered.

First, we'll set you up on a HIPAA compliant platform for secure communication, and the online forms you complete will shape our time together. I prioritize transparency, ensuring you're clear on our framework right from our initial session.

I lean on the ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) model but also utilize diverse techniques tailored to your needs. In the midst of life's chaos, I aim to help you better understand your mind and body, providing tools and techniques that extend beyond our sessions.

Your comfort is crucial. As I evolve in my practice, I'm committed to eradicating biases, ensuring our interactions remain free of judgment. Do note the 24-hour cancellation policy.

Feedback is invaluable. Feel free to share insights or concerns at any stage. If you ever feel the need to conclude our sessions, I request one final meet-up to reflect on your journey and gather your feedback.

Together, we'll navigate this journey with clarity and commitment.
