Kelley believes that each person has their own story that has shaped what they are currently experiencing.  Through her work, she strives to foster a safe space where clients can tell their story, gain insight into how that has impacted them and create a new reality that is more fulfilling.

Kelley believes therapy is a collaborative process and guides clients to increase self-awareness, gain new perspectives, decrease symptoms, and increase personal strengths.
