Kelly is a licensed therapist and North Carolina native. She attended Pfeiffer University in Misenheimer, NC where she earned her B.A. in Psychology and attained her M.A. in Professional Counseling from Ottawa University in Phoenix, AZ. 

 

It is Kelly’s belief that each therapeutic journey is unique to the individual and will work with each client to develop a path that works best for you. There is not one single therapeutic approach that best suits every person so a variety of techniques can be utilized to cater to your unique self, including: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness-Based Interventions, Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), Art therapy, and Music therapy.

 

Kelly currently resides in Cary, NC with her husband and two children, Etta and Ellis. When she is not working, Kelly enjoys cooking, crafting, upcycling, and watching shows.
