I am a Licensed Professional Counselor currently licensed in Alabama with 5 years of professional experience as a licensed psychotherapist and 3 years as an Associate Licensed Counselor. I am a retired Military Veteran who has served for 22 years as a Licensed Professional Nurse. I have a vast experience working with military members and their families. As an Associate Licensed Counselor, I have worked with a variety of mental health issues to include: grief and loss, severe mental illness, and opioid addiction.
My counseling style is person centered. Generally the counselling style I use is cognitive behavioral and narrative therapy,. I believe in a team approach to therapy, in which the client has the lead and active role. I have committed the last five years of treating clients who would not otherwise be able to afford counseling services. I believe that every human being should be afforded the opportunity to receiving mental health support and treatment.
I encourage anyone who is seeking to improve their lives and circumstances to take the challenging step to call or write me. I am here to encourage you, not judge you and your experience. Take the step today to change your life!
I look forward to an opportunity to work with you to accomplish your goals!

I have been working with Kelley for a couple of months now and words cannot describe how wonderful, thoughtful and encouraging she has been on my journey.
I had tried taken therapy in the past, but I often found that the exercises I would get didn’t really click for me, and I didn’t feel as comfortable to open up to them.
Kelley’s ability to truly listen and find exercises that feel more catered to what I need is an incredible gift. She has an incredible ability to make me feel safe, while also kindly hold me accountable for goals I am trying to achieve. She is also great at following up with me throughout the week and encourage me.
Thank you for everything you do Kelley!

I just at the beginning of this therapy. Kelley is supportive. She will help organize yourself by some sheets. I like her slow but assertive tone.
