“Wonder is the heaviest element on the periodic table. Even a tiny fleck of it stops time.”

– Diane Ackerman


Kelly is a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist who works from a primarily somatic and transpersonal perspective. She has also studied Buddhist Psychology in depth, and relies upon the insights and inner transformation that the practice of Yoga and meditation have brought her as the foundation of her work.

The issues she has worked with deeply in her clients include relationship struggles, parenting, grief, addiction, Anxiety, Depression, Panic Disorder, and spiritual crises. Kelly worked for 6 years in a dual-diagnosis clinic focused on managing co-occurring disorders, and also has experience with Axis II disorders such as OCD and OCPD, BDP, and Schizophrenia. 


Kelly is infinitely fascinated by the power of a therapeutic alliance to invite change in clients. When we risk being seen by another, we see ourselves in an entirely different light, and the impossible is suddenly the inevitable. We find freedom to transform where we were previously locked in intractable patterns. Change does not come without work, but it does not have to be a struggle. Therapy can be a joyous process of self-discovery and expansion.

Kelly works with individuals, couples, families, and groups. 


“Our deepest aliveness is an un-diminishable force. Our awakeness appears to wax and wane, as we get pulled into suffering and into seduction. But our deepest Self is always awake, always alive and well, playful and profound at once, utterly free. Watch the natural world and see how it touches your imagination. Watch closely -- how the waves keep lapping at the shore, how the wingspan of a hawk in flight lifts you while you observe. Watch and know that your deepest Self is always present in the watching, in the purity of being aware. You are never apart from this freedom. It is you. Therapy can return us to ourselves, build our skills, remind us of our freedom. But our foundation has been there all along. The deepest Self is always waiting.”
