Hi, I'm Kelly and I'm happy that you are here!
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Tampa who is passionate about helping clients reach their goals and find peace. Although my specialty is working with teens and young adults, I have experience working with toddlers, children, and adults of all ages.
While working in a community mental health agency in my early years as a therapist, I realized how prevalent trauma is and how difficult it can be for clients to deal with it's physical and emotional effects. This led me to seek out further specialized training such as EMDR so that I could provide the best care for my clients struggling with the aftermath of traumatic events. It has been an honor to see just how resilient people can be when given the proper tools and care.
I have found these skills to be useful not only in dealing with traumatic events but any stressors or life transitions. Helping clients regain control of their lives, their thoughts, and emotions is my passion. Whether this be learning to overcome panic attacks or processing a difficult end to a relationship, I am dedicated to being present with my clients throughout the process.
