Written by K.I. on Nov 12, 2021 after therapy with Kelly for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, career difficulties, and coaching

So far I have only had two sessions with Kelly and they have been GREAT! She’s a terrific listener and I look forward to our sessions. She has been so sympathetic and our conversations are rich. Talking to her feels like a breathe of fresh air. She’s amazing!

Kelly is an active listener who gives advice when needed. She is on-time, non-judgemental, and I love her weekly notes that seem to apply to everyone's life. Really helpful and available overall.

She is a very nice person to talk to, is supportive and understanding. She is gentle and a nice person to confide with :)

As a person going to therapy for the first time, I really lucked out with Kelly as my therapist. I felt comfortable with her sooner than anyone else I've ever talked with, and I was able to open up about tough things within the first weeks of meeting with her. The reason why I have felt so comfortable is because she is kind, genuine, patient, trusting and intelligent. I leave our sessions feeling more healed, more inspired to take positive action and in general just feeling BETTER about myself.

Written by E.M. on Aug 18, 2021 after therapy with Kelly for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, intimacy-related issues, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Kelly is supportive, understanding, encouraging, honest and helpful. She had my create goals for what I wanted to get out of therapy which is what we focused on as we moved forward. Each time we talked, she would ask how I was doing and what had been going on since the last time we talked. She was knowledgeable and remembered what we had previously talked about. Kelly agreed with me and supported my decision when I told her I wanted to try going without a counselor for a bit and see how it goes. She made me feel capable, powerful and like I am a strong person! I will forever be grateful for her and her support and helpfulness in my journey. Thank you Kelly!

I look forward to meeting with Kelly each week because I come out of our sessions feeling supported, heard, and recognized. She is able to understand my perspective and listen to my experiences in a way that is reassuring, and she gives great life advice from her own perspective and wisdom. From the few weeks I've met with Kelly, I've already noticed a difference in how I can help manage my anxious thoughts and express my emotions more openly with my friends and family. If you feel like you need an outside perspective, someone to talk to, or just need help processing something, I definitely recommend meeting with Kelly!
