Kelsey values the relationship with the client and strives to create a method for treatment that is specifically tailored to meet the unique needs of the individuals she serves. She uses Cognitive Behavioral and ACT Therapy approaches to address unhealthy cognitions that impact one’s ability to behave in a values direction.
Kelsey has several years of experience working with children struggling with emotional and behavioral challenges and has worked extensively with children on the Autism Spectrum. She strongly believes in a family approach when working with children to enhance the healing process.
