I am licensed in Iowa (LISW) with 22 years of professional experience providing individual therapy. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, trauma and abuse, and bipolar disorder. I also have significant experience working with depression. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment.

Seeing people change and make progress towards their goals has always been my favorite part of this work.

Kelly is compassionate, kind, and has good insights. I feel better after a counseling session than I do before, and I feel like that’s a sign of a good therapist.
