About Me

Hello! My name is Kelsey and I am a licensed clinical social worker in the state of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Colorado, and Utah. I have over 7 years of experience helping clients reach their goals in creating a happier and more fulfilled life. I received my Master’s degree in Social work from Augsburg University and my bachelors degree in psychology from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. I have been fortunate to provide care to a wide range of ages in both individual and group settings. I have experience with clients with a broad range of concerns including, motivation, life balance, depression, anxiety, advocacy, anger management, LGBT care, military, crisis situations, life transitions, trauma, and loss.

I am passionate and dedicated to providing therapy that both supports and empowers my clients. I understand that therapy isn’t always an easy process, but the journey towards navigating life challenges and self-improvement can be powerful process.

I approach therapy from a client-centered approach to establish a safe, warm environment that is respectful to all clients. I use several of evidenced-based practices to guide my work, including, cognitive-behavioral, acceptance and commitment therapy, and solution-focused therapy. I take a strengths-based approach and trauma informed approach to my work that is flexible and responsive to my client needs. I am culturally sensitive to clients needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and I would be honored to join you in this journey!

Kelsey has been able to help me work through a significant trauma, even through an online platform. She moves at my pace, and is extremely respectful. She's been a bigger help than I can explain.

Kelsey is awesome! She is a great listener and seems to really understand what I’m trying to communicate. She’s very professional and easy to open up to and makes me feel very comfortable sharing things with her. She is great at getting to the root of things and helping me figure out what I’m processing and next steps.

Work with me!
