Kelly graduated from Temple University’s School of Social work in 2004. She has experience working as a hospice social worker and bereavement counselor for various nonprofit organizations in the Philadelphia region for over a decade. She started a private practice in 2014 and felt it was important to support her clinical work with ongoing training as well as experiencing every kind of therapy she provides. She graduated from GTIP in 2015. She is also interested in constantly examining how her social location shows up in interactions. As a white, queer, femme, cis woman (she/her/hers), who is able bodied, Buddhist, middle class, child free by choice, neuroatypical, and a U.S. Citizen, she is interested in holding herself accountable to how her privilege impacts her work. Kelly has extensive training in grief and loss, trauma, Gestalt therapy, somatic therapy, EMDR, Trans-allyship, SE, hypnotherapy, anti-racism, improv comedy, and is also a Death Doula. In her spare time she enjoys woodworking, running, cooking, podcasting, reading, spending time with animals of all kinds, and taking on DIY construction projects.
