Hello! My name is Kelini Coker and I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor. I received my bachelor's degree in Psychology and master's degree in Community Counseling at McDaniel College where I cultivated a passion for supporting others through difficult seasons.

I am committed to meeting you where you are, moving at your pace, helping you find

Kelini has been an incredible source of support to me during a very difficult season in my life. She is very compassionate, a good listener, and so helpful in offering new ways to think about difficult issues. I recommend her highly.

Kelini Coker has a calm, soothing voice and is wiser beyond her years. She allows clients to open up without any sense that time is ticking. At the same time is able to digest and assess quickly the patients needs. Would recommend her for those who need help organizing thoughts and feelings.

She def cool. I was not a huge fan of her approach at first but when i trusted the process I began to find where her Miyagi moments got me to thinking about hings I should be thinking about. I was never a fan of therapy but after really dealing with a professional, I am happy to say My thoughts have shifted.
Its also always nice to have some one to give you a educated, professional second opinion on your own thoughts with out having to deal with the fear and anxiety that comes from socially instituted judgement and passive aggression.
