About Me

Welcome! I am a licensed clinical social worker in the state of Ohio. Since graduating from the University of Cincinnati in 2013, I have been fostering change in older adults by providing emotional support through a client-centered, trauma-informed approach. I work with a broad range of issues, including life transitions and adjustments, relationship issues, anxiety disorders, grief and loss, PTSD, and other sequelae of trauma.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe that therapy is a collaborative endeavor, and its effectiveness lies in the strength of the therapeutic relationship. My goal is to help you better understand your problems, the dynamics of your relationships, your history, and yourself in a safe and caring environment. My treatment style is rooted in an evidenced-based/strengths-based approach utilizing cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing, and solution-focused techniques. At the center of my approach is a collaborative relationship with clients and the desire to support their development by encouraging self-understanding, skills development, and self-compassion.

I look forward to working with you!

Kelly was the exact type of therapist i needed! She was amazing at allowing me to go at my pace while offering resources and exercises to help navigate me to my goal, which i actually exceeded! I came out with more knowledge about myself than expected, so many "Ah Hah" moments and connecting the dots through life events and experiences that have happened to me, which lead to greater understanding of self. Therapy has been a wonderful tool for me and Kelly is an exceptional therapist! Would highly recommend!

Compassionate, caring, thoughtful and genuine are just a few things that Kelly brings to sessions. This therapist absolutely saved my life and helped me claw my way out of serious depression from a rough breakup. I can’t thank her enough or recommend her enough.

I’ve only been working with Kelly for a short period of time, but so far she’s been amazing. It’s my first time doing therapy, and she has been a great counselor in that transition. Really attentive and supportive during all of my sessions.

She has done a fine job so far, we have only had one conversation but have another schedule for this Friday. She has given me work sheets and articles to read while she was on vacation. Overall has been a good experience so far
