Extraordinary things are always hiding in places people never think to look” -Jodi Picoul

Counseling Style

Kelly (Her/She) provides positive, strength-based, person-centered therapy. Kelly creates a warm, empathic, non-judgmental environment for her patients. Kelly focuses on the strengths, needs and goals of the patient and supports the patient each step of the way. Kelly uses humor and relaxation/mindfulness throughout her sessions.


Kelly earned her master’s degree from Southern New Hampshire University in 2017 and then received her License Alcohol and Drug Counselor-I (LADCI) from Assumption college in 2020. Kelly has a diverse working experience that includes child and families, dual diagnosis, substance abuse, and mental health treatment within an outpatient and in-home setting.
