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.

Great Experienced and Caring Counselor: Session One: I felt an immediate trust both ways, professional assessment of my sole core concern with questions, listening and focused attention to my every word. I like Kelli’s approach and action-based therapy. Her particular experience in the study of trauma to the brain and how that may be related to some behaviors was especially helpful.
