About me

I am LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor). I graduated from Southern Nazarene University where I received my Masters in Christian Children and Family Counseling in 2012. I have worked with children, teens, adults, couples, and families for 9 years. I love helping clients with an array of concerns such as; anxiety, depression, OCD, ADHD, and just normal life stressors like relationships, parenting, and self image. My specialty would be trauma from abuse (emotional, physical, spiritual, mental, and sexual) . I want to help clients see that what happened to them is not okay ,but it does not have to define them. They can live a life free from the trauma and all the shame and guilt that comes with it. I use treatment methods such as CBT(Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) it is changing how we think so we change how we feel so we can have better reactions. I also use Narrative Writing, which is basically telling your story on paper.
My therapy style is warm and interactive. I am going to listen and I am going to challenge my client's thinking to help them grow and develop new ways of thinking and stop unhealthy patterns. I am going to teach them coping skills and help them see they no longer need me because they are strong enough on their own. I am going to treat everyone with respect and kindness. I am a Christian but I understand and accept not all my clients will be and that is completely fine with me. I pass no judgement because I have never walked their shoes. I do offer a lot of empathy and validation to all my clients so they feel seen and heard. I am here to help provide time and space for my client explore who they are and who they want to be. I work from a strength base model where I find their strengths a make them stronger. I also help them discover their weaknesses so I can help them develop strategies to grow and develop them into more of a strength.
It takes a lot of courage to seek help and I want to say BRAVO for reaching out. Change can be frightful but in the end it is so worth it to be free of the burdens.

Written on Jan 23, 2023 after therapy with Kelli for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, and parenting issues

I had a great experience with Kelli. I went into therapy for the first time to address my anxiety and to improve my relationships with my children. Kelli was extremely supportive and understanding throughout the entire process.

She was able to create a safe and comfortable environment for me to open up and share my thoughts and feelings. Kelli helped me to understand my anxiety better and gave me tools to manage it. She also taught me effective communication and parenting strategies to help with my kids.

Kelli was always punctual and professional, and I appreciated her kindness, compassion and dedication to helping me through my journey.

Overall, I am very grateful to have had Kelli as my therapist and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to improve their mental health and wellbeing.
