Hello and welcome! I'm Kelsey, an avid escape room enthusiast, someone who lives in the hyphen (multi-ethnic people, represent!), and a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over 6 years of experience providing trauma informed care for people from all walks of life. My therapeutic goal is to provide you a safe space to encounter, and hold the reality of life- with all its joys and sorrows- so that you can thrive where you are. Whether you feel stuck, overwhelmed by your emotions, paralyzed by grief, thrown off course, or not good enough: All of you is welcomed!
I believe therapy is an excellent place to quiet the outside noise so that you can be curious and gracious with yourself. When doing the work of leaning into your own mysteries, stories, and beliefs, we’ll get a deeper understanding of you, and where you want to go. We will work together to discover new insights into your story, remove obstacles in your path, and take practical steps towards growth and healing.
From my experiences working with various clients, I have found that marginalized communities are offered less space in our world at large and this drives me to create a healing environment for POC, LGBTQ+ persons/folx/community, people with disabilities, and those in other marginalized communities. I have extensive experience working with people who have experienced single-event, chronic, complex, and historical trauma. My trauma approach framework is to support you in connecting to your body and voice, exercising your choice, and taking your power back so that you are empowered to be whole and free.
For your convenience, all of our sessions are done via HIPAA compliant video platform. There's no need to worry about commuting, canceling during snow days (yay Minnesota!), scheduling during regular office hours, or finding additional childcare. Research indicates that video therapy is just as effective as traditional in-person therapy, making excellent care more accessible. I’m all about making therapy more accessible! I look forward to working with you!
"I understand that life is filled with 10,000 joys and 10,000 sorrows and my goal is to help you have the skills to be present for both."
