Kelly (she/her) graduated from Temple University’s School of Social work in 2004. She worked as a hospice social worker and bereavement counselor for various nonprofit organizations in the Philadelphia region for twelve years. She started a private practice in 2012 and felt it was important to support her clinical work with ongoing trainings, as well as personally experiencing every kind of therapy she provides. She graduated from GTIP in 2015, and became a supervisor in 2018, and faculty in 2020.
She is also interested in constantly examining how her social location shows up in interactions and impacts relationships. As a white, queer, femme, cis woman, 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, Somatic Experiencing, hypnotherapy, anti-racism, improv comedy, and is also a Death Doula. She runs two supervision groups for clinicians interested in learning more about themselves and how to connect with clients.
In her spare time, Kelly enjoys woodworking, running, cooking, reading, tarot, spending time with animals of all kinds, and taking on DIY construction projects.
