Dr. Kelsey Railsback


About Me


I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) and I have been practicing since 2015. Marriage and Family Therapists (MFTs) are professionals that focus on systemic solutions to problems with individuals, couples, and family systems. We are trained to view relationships in context. MFTs identify patterns and help individuals, couples, and families determine which patterns are working for them and which could be improved. MFTs are trained to work effectively with individuals, couples, and families and significant family members are invited into therapy sessions if the client so chooses.

I earned my master’s degree and PhD from Nova Southeastern University’s Family Therapy program and have been a member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy since 2015 and Delta Kappa, the official honor society for the profession of marriage and family therapy, since 2016. I served as the Vice President of Nova Southeastern University’s Marriage and Family Therapy Club in 2016 and President of the organization in 2017. I also studied Adult Development under Dr. Robert Kegan at Harvard University in 2013.

I am fully licensed to see clients who currently reside in the state of Florida.

I would describe my approach as client-centered, collaborative, and solution-oriented. I am trained in Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Narrative Therapy (NT), Collaborative Therapy (CLS), Mental Research Institute (MRI) techniques, Structural Family Therapy, Strategic Family Therapy, and Bowen Natural Systems Theory—among many other models.

My experience has shown me that problems often lie in the environment or in handling a situation rather than something internally wrong with a person. I strive to help my clients clarify their problem, develop helpful and healthy boundaries, and assess and change patterns that are no longer working for them and/or those around them. I believe that insight into problems can lead to behavioral changes, as well as the other way around: behavioral changes may shed more light on issues that allow for long-term changes. Most people need a little guidance at some point in their life’s journey.

I would like to help you reach your destination.

Take good care,

Dr. Kelsey Railsback, LMFT

My experience with Dr. Railsback has been one of understanding and reassurance. Dr. Railsback is incredibly personable and easy to open up to. These qualities make it easy for me to have open and honest conversations that open the door for valuable introspection and problem solving. Dr. Railsback is an incredible recourse for me when it comes to areas of my life that I have difficulties parsing through on my own.
