About me

I earned a Master of Education in Mental Health Counseling and Human Development from Lindsey Wilson School of Professional Counseling in 2008. My experience has been in a range of settings, but primarily in working with individuals and families to explore anxiety, depression, or other underlying concerns that create problems in day-to-day life. I have experience and training working with anxiety and depression, grief/bereavement, perinatal mental health, trauma, parenting, and more.

Throughout my schooling and career, I have had many professional influences, through professors, supervisors, colleagues, and various theorists. Theoretically, I find myself often focusing on a cognitive-behavioral approach to therapy. Ultimately, I view the theories and techniques I use through a scriptural and spiritual framework, always striving to better understand God's remarkable creations.

I believe that the counseling process revolves around improving relationships with others as well as the self. Life is a learning process. My basic approach is generally to help my subscribers develop and master healthy coping skills (building confidence in their ability to do so), and then work together to dig a bit further to identify and resolve underlying conflicts that lead to common symptoms (such as anger, anxiety, and depression). It's a process with different pieces, and when they all start fitting together, very good things can happen. Counseling is work - it requires effort on both the part of the therapist and the part of the subscriber... but the end result can be life changing! I'm excited to help guide you through the steps to finding peace and personal growth.

I started working with Keri several months ago and I would highly recommend her to anyone. She is easy to communicate with, she listens well, but most importantly she has the ability to identify and understand the true issues at hand. I have learned so much about myself with Keri’s assistance and she has given me hope when I haven’t had any for quite some time. I do believe that I can overcome my challenges with Keri’s help!

Keri is an excellent listener, has great advice, and I feel we made a connection on our first session!

Keri has been great. Very supportive, challenges me to think about my problems, situations, encourages me to look internally to find the root of what is going on. I like how she pushes back in a constructive, problem-solving manner. She is never rude, she is thoughtful and genuinely cares about me. I feel listened to.

Keri has been great. I really feel like I have someone in my corner cheering for me and it is so greatly appreciated. When I talk to Keri I can focus on me and not have to worry about how my words or feelings affect my family or the situations we are facing. She has really helped me focus on how to cope with my feelings and what is best for me during this situation we are dealing with.
