Experience & Specialties
Kelly’s experience ranges all age groups, having provided therapy in our community schools, various health agencies, along with child welfare court and family treatment drug court. Kelly has spent years working in tandem with psychiatric based medical teams providing therapy to patients managing bipolar spectrum, schizophrenia, dual diagnosis, personality disorders and trauma. She holds a certification in grief and bereavement support.
Kelly’s service with individuals, couples, and families comes from a variety of professional experiences. Having served as a Jr High/High School youth pastor for 10 years, her affection for teens and families deepened. Kelly has helped couples navigate and enrich marital life and parenting (including blending). Kelly comfortably treats individuals struggling with acute and crisis issues ranging from panic to suicidal thinking patterns, including teens struggling with anxiety, social isolation and/or suicidal thoughts and self-harm behaviors.
Helping individuals and families heal from the effects of substance abuse is a passion for Kelly. Whether you’re struggling with addiction, or you love someone struggling with addiction, Kelly will be a valuable source of support and resources. She has taught in the field of recovery and continues to stay abreast of new treatments and interventions, including dual diagnosis and medically assisted treatments.
Personally, Kelly is married to the man she most admires. They have raised six children in their blended family journey and have four grandsons, with one on the way. Kelly enjoys her girl friendships, and a long-time relationship with water; whether that’s kayaking, snow skiing, swimming or sand dollar hunting. With spare time she writes, reads, and indulges in color.
