Barbara Grant-Kelly

(LPC, LCAS-A)

About Me

Hello there, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Certified Addictions Specialist in the Charlotte NC area.

As a helping professional for at least 20 years, my experience is quite diverse and comprehensive. In the field of mental health and wellness, I have functioned in the capacity of Mentor, Educator, Foster/Adoptive Parent and Counselor. I have coached individuals on living, social skills, how to effectively resolve problems and interact with the community as a whole. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

Life experiences often disrupt our sense of wholeness, leaving us feeling unable to find our way back to ourselves. When this happens, our lives and our relationships can become difficult, or even unbearable. Our work together is one of helping you to reunite with that core wisdom within yourself, so you can experience more love, connection and happiness that is innately yours. Together we will develop a deep knowing of who you are and what you stand for. Working together, we will identify and shift patterns that are blocking you from fully experiencing and living a life worth living.

As a highly compassionate, empathetic, patient, respectful and committed individual, I understands it takes courage and time in taking those steps towards this type change. So, if you are ready to take that first step, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Barbara is kind and professional. She provides opportunities for self-reflection and genuine words of support and encouragement. She communicates clearly, and I recommend her services for anyone who is experiencing depression.

Barbara has been a great addition to my life. She listens to me and responds to my concerns. She makes a point to pass information and articles to me as supplements between sessions, which I truly appreciate. She doesn’t rush me in sessions and not only encourages my positive changes and outlooks but notes and expresses my need to address negatives as well. I’m very happy with Barbara. Thank you Barabara for being there for me.

Barbara listens well. I love the flexibility in her schedule as well. If she doesn't hear from me in a while, she checks up and makes sure everything is cool. Kudos!
