About me

Welcome! I'm Deborah, and I'm thrilled to embark on this journey with you toward personal growth and fulfillment. As a mental health therapist, I bring a laid-back style and a genuine commitment to helping you uncover your strengths and achieve your goals.

My approach to counseling is rooted in authenticity, compassion, and collaboration. I believe in creating a safe and non-judgmental space where you can explore your thoughts, feelings, and experiences openly. Whether you're facing challenges, seeking clarity, or striving to reach your full potential, I'm here to support and empower you every step of the way.

With a deep respect for each individual's unique journey, I tailor my therapeutic techniques to meet your specific needs and preferences. Together, we'll work to identify barriers, cultivate resilience, and cultivate meaningful changes that align with your values and aspirations.

Above all, my goal is to see everyone I work with thrive and live their most authentic lives. I'm here to listen, guide, and cheer you on as you navigate life's ups and downs, and I look forward to accompanying you on this transformative path.

Let's embark on this journey together and unlock the incredible potential that lies within you.

Deborah Kelly is so sweet and encouraging. She allows lots of room to talk while still making me think more deeply than I would on my own. I’ve felt improvement after every session with her!
