About Me

I have a wealth of experience in what life has taught me through times of sorrow, pain, grief and other times so much joy. We all have different seasons in our life. Throughout life we will need different pieces to create our puzzle. My knowledge also comes from higher education and practice of that knowledge throughout my career. I am well rounded with experience from young to older clients. Serving 10 years in the military taught me how to and the importance of working with an array of different people from various backgrounds, ethnicities, ages, religions, sexualities, and overall different socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds. My passion is in supporting others through various parts of their journeys utilizing practical approaches that are evidence based. Some therapy strategies may include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing Techniques, Supportive Therapy, Narrative Theray, Mindfulness, Whole Health, and a variety of other strategies or a mixture thereof. I am looking forward to supporting you by first listening, clarifying what is heard, and overall supporting your individuality. Therapy strategies are not a one size fits all. You are unique and I look forward to supporting you during this part of your journey.

She's provided me with excellent support (even checked on me when I went unresponsive for a bit) given me plenty of time and space to vent , it's been less than a month though.

Ms. Kalene LCSW is a fantastic therapist. I'm very grateful for her insight, challenges, support and professional camaraderie. Highly recommended for healing trauma work, releasing mindsets that no longer serve towards your enlightenment, and claiming self mastery. 10/10 stars!

Kalene is a great counselor! She gives me opportunities to see where I can grow and do things differently! She is very involved in my confidence building and always replies in a timely manner. She gives me worksheets to do that help me have a unique perspective on my own problems. I enjoy having her helping me become a better person!
