Hello! My name is Kelly and I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker in the state of Ohio with over five years of experience providing therapy services. I received both my undergraduate degree in Psychology and my Masters of Social Work degree from Youngstown State University.
I have worked in a wide range of therapeutic settings including: inpatient psychiatric hospitalization, residential treatment, partial hospitalization and outpatient care. I have treated individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, eating disorders, mood disorders, ADD/ADHD, self-harm, grief and loss, substance abuse disorders, complex trauma, relationship issues and more.
I am a trauma informed therapist trained in EMDR therapy. I take a client centered approach to therapy, believing fully that clients are the experts of their own lives and determine the direction of therapy. I practice from a strengths-based and solution-focused framework, drawing from several different modalities, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). Outside of my work as a therapist, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, practicing yoga, snuggling with my cats (Leif Erikson & Snickers) and traveling to new places.
