About me

My name is Darcie Kelly, and I have over 16 years of experience as a clinical social worker. I am licensed in several states and have training in multiple evidence-based therapeutic modalities. This means that I can tailor your therapeutic experience to fit with your needs and preferences. I have experience helping clients recover from depression, anxiety, trauma, and other life interfering stressors. I take a direct approach to healing, and I enjoy meeting her clients where they are, and at in any point in considering making change.

I earned my license as a Clinical Social Worker by first earning by BS in Psychology from Indiana University, Bloomington, and then my Master of Social Work from Walla Walla College in Missoula, Montana. I have also completed the non-terminal master's program in Applied Behavior Analysis at Montana State University, so much of my work fall under behavior change. I have used several evidence-based approaches to therapy including but not limited to, Solution focused and other Brief therapies, Cognitive Behavioral therapies that include Acceptance and Commitment therapy, and other forms such as Attachment Theory. I am also knowledgeable about sexual issues as they relate to traditional and nontraditional relationships.

I am told I have a warm, endearing, relaxed, and inviting style to therapy that makes therapy feel welcoming, supportive and without judgment. I utilize both knowledge of brain science and psychotherapeutic approaches to provide a truly holistic and comprehensive approach to improving one’s mental health. When you join me, I will hold unconditional positive self-regard for you, and I will work to ensure that you feel supported and successful in achieving their goals.

Darcie cares. That in it of itself is huge. They are nonjudgmental. They try to understand and when they don’t they work to.

Darcie has hands-down been one of the best therapists I've worked with. She quickly identified what the root of my struggles were and laid out workable actions to start shifting my damaging patterns. I've experienced immense growth during our weeks working together. She's welcoming and thoughtful, intuitive, funny, kind, and smart.
