ABOUT

Kelly’s exploration of mindfulness-informed psychological thought and the synergy of the mind/body/spirit connection have moved her to adopt a holistic approach to psychotherapy. Her strong theoretical and clinical background is balanced by esoteric endeavors that include the study and practice of Eastern and Western spiritual and metaphysical philosophy,  A Course in Miracles, yoga, and meditation. She is adept at counseling individuals coping with a variety of issues in a manner that honors the spirit as well as the psyche.

Fifteen years of experience in the mental health field, working with those seeking help  with such diverse concerns as relationship issues, grief and loss, life transitions, personal growth, depression, and anxiety have provided Kelly with a solid foundation of knowledge. She is skilled in the identification of obstacles as opportunities for healing, and the development of effective, creative solutions.

In addition to counseling individuals, couples, and families, Kelly has led numerous support groups and workshops for people experiencing a variety of challenges.

As a public speaker, Kelly has presented to clinical, academic and general audiences, addressing varied topics including Forgiveness; Therapeutic Humor in Psychotherapy; Concepts of Grief & Loss;  and Compassion Fatigue and Self-Care in the Professional Setting.  She has lectured at the graduate level at Salem State College , Northeastern University, and Goddard College, and supervised counseling, social work, and chaplain  student interns.

As a spiritual coach and teacher of A Course in Miracles, Kelly specializes in helping people to heal their relationships with Spirit, self, and others. She offers workshops and speaking engagements on Creating Miraculous Relationships, and individualized programs through her Laughing Spirit Coaching practice.

Kelly’s collaborative approach and belief that all answers are already present within the individual enable her to serve as an agent for change and transformation. Her intention is to help those with whom she works to embody conscious evolution – to experience the wisdom and fulfillment that come from awakening to their own magnificent nature.
