I’m Kelly, a Health and Clinical Psychologist. I’ve been working as a psychologist for over 20 years and have completed health and clinical psychology training. My experience includes work in multiple settings such as the Army, government, consulting, psycho-oncology, and private practice.
As a Health and Clinical Psychologist, I am passionate about how physical and mental health interact. To this end, I am enthusiastic about helping those living with disabilities, injuries, illnesses and mental health conditions to achieve the best quality of life possible. I have a particular interest in working with adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and ADHD. I am also heavily involved in supporting people with PTSD, veterans, and currently serving military members and first responders.
I am focused on achieving your outcomes and will tailor your treatment according to your goals. To achieve this, I work from a positive, solution-focused approach to create meaningful symptom relief and long-term changes that persist after your counselling is complete. Therapy approaches that I commonly use include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Schema Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy and Motivational Interviewing. For parenting struggles, Emotion Coaching is beneficial. Behaviour change strategies are used to help my clients break bad habits, improve their health, and support their mental health.
Fit is critical as it is a core determinant of therapeutic success. A psychologist can’t help you well if they don’t ‘get’ you. So what am I about? Well, I’m committed to ensuring that you feel heard, respected, and understood. Further, I believe in improving a person’s well-being by targeting mental health, physical health, and relationships difficulties.
