Kelly’s counseling style is supportive and collaborative with a focus on helping people gaining insight into their interpersonal relationships. Kelly draws from psychoanalytic theory and cognitive behavioral theory for the foundation of her practice.

Kelly specializes in working with parents who have family members with special needs.  Her practice provides a warm and caring environment in order to address the complex emotions that are common when caring for a family member with medical or mental health issues.

Kelly currently develops and manages programs that work to reunite parents and children who have experienced abuse. She has also developed and managed programs that help families recover from sexual trauma.
