Professional statement

Kellie works to meet her clients where they are in the present moment. She understands that this work is not linear, and there will be days where you are struggling more than you have in the past. Kellie takes the time to get to know you, understand your goals, and ensure you are getting what you need out of your therapeutic journey.


Message to clients

Therapy is a journey. Throughout that journey, I will work to understand who you are, how you became that person, and who it is you desire to be. Our session content will vary based on your specific needs at that time, but we will continue to work towards your overall goal(s) that led you to therapy. While I take our work together very seriously, I also try to make it light when appropriate so it is easier for you to understand how to move forward.
