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. Taking the first step to improve your life through therapy takes courage and I am here to support you in that process. Seeing people change and make progress towards their goals has always been my favorite part of this work.

From our first conversation I felt comfortable being myself & being open with my feelings/goals. I’m very scatter brained & she let the conversation just flow with however my brain led it. I felt heard.

She is a very kind and caring person, since the day I started talking to her for my mental health situation I felt welcomed and cared for like my family should make me feel. She is very quick to respond to my out of session messages. She’s never been late or missed a therapy appointment. Always recommends me literature and stuff that actually helps!

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.
