About Me

Hi, I am a licensed clinical social worker in Florida with over 15 years experience working as a social worker and counselor . I have worked with clients, as well as some of their families, with a wide range of needs including depression, anxiety, parenting concerns, cancer diagnoses, and Lack of self love. I have also helped many people with grief and loss concerns, as well as those who have experienced trauma. I also am knowledgeable on medical concerns as well as body wellness due to working in the hospital, for hospice, and in a fitness center. I also participate in some holistic practices such as essential oils and am a Reiki Master.

My counseling style is warm, interactive, and non judgmental. I believe that when someone is in need of help, I want to partner with them to problem solve, and develop the most appropriate plan of action, and have the best outcome possible. My approach is based on your needs and can range from mindfulness therapy, cognitive behavioral, solution focused, holistic, or trauma focused to name a few.

I look forward to being on the journey with you to support, empower, and celebrate you.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Kellie Kizis. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Kellie is phenomenal. I can’t find the right words to describe the level of thankfulness I have to her. She is so deeply compassionate, kind hearted and warm. Talking to her is like talking with an old friend- one who brings me comfort and terrific advice. She is an incredible listener and ensures that at each visit we have is utilized to its greatest effort. Kellie is truly an amazing asset to BetterHelp and to my life. Thank you Kellie!

I believe that Kellie is caring and she really tries to offer me with different options to manage my therapy. Breathing, mindfulness, journaling, etc. I really appreciate the different approaches.

Kellie is very gentle and patient and has been really great to work with so far.

I'm looking forward to continuing to apply what I've learned so far in my day to day life.
