Kelsey's Story:

There was a time in life where I was consumed by suffering. I was crippled with anxiety, depression, wasting time in toxic relationships, overeating, numbing out, and fearful. Thankfully, I crossed paths with the right healers and helping professionals. It was from my own experience as a client in therapy, that I developed an interest in becoming one myself. 

As for many, it took me hitting rock bottom to wake up and realize something needed to change. And that something was me. I surrendered to the fact that I was the only one who could heal myself and my life. And deep down I knew that meant changing my life in mind, body, and spirit. This wasn't the easy path. It meant unpacking trauma, grief, ending relationships, and letting go of the life I envisioned and thought I wanted. Choosing this path completely altered my life in mind blowing ways. It was a call to own my truth.

For the first time in my life I felt confident, clear, and awake. I was living my life. My life wasn't living me.

From this experience, I feel called to work with individuals and help them through their own healing journey which led me to become a licensed mental health counselor. I consider this work to be a true honor and joy. With the lens of my training in holistic psychotherapy, art therapy, yoga, and meditation, I guide clients through intensive healing retreats. Together, we unpack what's keeping you rooted in fear, anxiety, guilt, and shame. Then, I teach you the tools to help heal your life. I believe it's important to understand why we behave, feel, and think the way we do and then use that knowledge to empower our healing.

I'm excited to learn more about you and how I can best support you in this process!
