I believe therapy is based on the relationship between the therapist and the client where the client is the expert on his or her own life. My goal is to provide a collaborative, non-judgmental space where clients can work to discover areas of their lives where they would like to change, grow, and gently uncover their true selves. Often, issues arise in the therapeutic environment that are also occurring in clients' lives, and we can experiment together to find new ways of being and interacting in the world.
I encourage clients to go at their own pace to ensure they feel they have found a safe place to truly explore their individuality. My approach is collaborative, intuitive, somatic, gestalt, and psychodynamic. I specialize in grief and loss, trauma, body image issues, divorce, relationship issues, illness, anxiety, depression, LGBTQ related issues, and stress management.
- Stress, Anxiety
- Trauma and abuse
I also have experience in Addictions, LGBT, Family, Intimacy-related, Parenting, Self esteem, Career, Depression

I love working with Kelly. I have a whole host of issues and quirks and she has made every effort to understand and work with each and every one of them. I genuinely appreciate her insight on my issues and although I'm currently in a position where we're just doing damage control until I can escape a toxic situation, I still feel that her help has been invaluable even though our journey is just starting.
Kelly is obviously very experienced and understands the mind and complexities on a deeper level than most the people I've talked to before. she knows patience and support just as well.
Kelly has been great! I had never talked to a therapist before and didn't really know what to expect. Kelly listens, is very supportive and empathetic and offers recommendations, and guidance through the things I worry about. It has been a very helpful experience so far!
Kelly has helped me through a difficult time in my life, and she made me realize that somethings I hadn't thought about were actually the root of the way I think and act. She helped me to assess my emotions differently in a way that will make a positive change in my life.
Kelly has been great to work with so far. She has been very responsive, kind and considerate of all of the things that I have brought up to talk to her about. I wasn't sure how I would feel about an online counselor but Kelly has done a great job of providing me counsel, resources and suggestions on how to improve things that we have discussed. I would recommend her to anyone on here that is looking for help.
Kelly 's kind, intuitive, and gentle guidance has been such a gift to me! I've seen therapists and counselors throughout my life and I was skeptical about doing a therapy over the phone, but my experience with Kelly has been uplifting and wonderful. She is guiding me with an open-heart and well informed manner. I feel incredible comfortable sharing things with her and never feel pressure to be or few anything that I'm not. Thank you so much Kelly for all you've done for me now and what you will help me with in the future. Xoxo
Within the first few emails with Kelly it was clear what a knowledgeable and experienced professional she was. This was my first counseling I have ever tried of any type and I would highly recommend it to anyone that may think they need help understanding their physical, emotional, and mental needs after experiencing a loss and processing the grief. I cannot imagine how I would have made it with Kelly's help.
Kelly's feedback has been very helpful. It was a good decision to reach out for help.
Kelly is wonderful! Very caring, a great listener and gives really helpful feedback. I find her easy to talk to and very open minded.
Kelly is a great counselor - she's intuitive, friendly and knowledgeable, and she has a flexible approach that suits me. I'm impressed with Better Help for finding such a good match for my needs! Kelly is giving me great support through a tough time.
Kelly helped me tremendously. I was at a very low point in my life when we first started talking and she has helped me to understand why I had been feeling like this, and how to help myself out of this kind of situation in the future. Kelly is an excellent counsellor, I cannot recommend her highly enough!
