About Me

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.

Kelly is very prompt and understanding. In the short time I’ve spoke with her; I feel much more valid in my struggles.

In the short couple of weeks I've know Kelly, I am confident that she is here to support and help me in my journey to getting better. She has given me so much hope and it's so good to know that she's there if I need her.

Kelly is not over-bearing and is very knowledgeable and adaptable. Is able to keep calm and provide streamline advice and seems to see through the “noise” and get right to helpful solutions or issues.
