I believe everyone can personally benefit from therapy, whether it be individual, between a couple, or a family.


Individual counseling/therapy works best when you are ready to work on you and need ways to make your life more manageable. Individual counseling helps you process your concerns and struggles in a one-to-one setting. I will work with you on feeling better in a safe and supportive way.



Couples counseling/therapy works best when you want to work on strengthening your relationship with your partner and/or communication between your partner. Couples counseling is advantageous to those interested in improving their relationships. Couples can be any sexuality and can be in all stages of the relationship. I’ve written a book about communication and relationships called “Professor Kelli’s Guide to Finding a Husband” (Lulu, 2010).



Family counseling/therapy works best when you have an issue involving the entire family or want to build stronger communication skills with specific members of the family. Family counseling provides an opportunity for all family members to get their needs met in a safe and nurturing setting. Issues can vary and the goal is to be heard and validated by all involved.


I’ve worked primarily with children with ADHD, autism, and special needs. I have two children with ADHD so I understand the difficulties! Currently, I work with parents of special needs children to help them emotionally and with parenting strategies.



Fertility and parenting can be a long and painful journey. I understand the complexities of the entire process. I can help support you with feelings you may be having including frustration, anger, sadness, and confusion.

I'm here to help you as quickly as I can. Yes, I believe long-term therapy has it's benefits but when you are feeling low or in a relationship crisis, I want to help you immediately with tools so you can start to feel better sooner rather than later. I work with a variety of therapy modules and customize it based on what the individual or couple needs. Since 2002, I've worked with adults, adolescents, couples, & families. I’m a radio co-host for LA Talk Radio and written the book “Professor Kelli’s Guide to Finding a Husband” (Lulu, 2010). I’m currently writing “Thriving with ADHD Workbook for Kids: Simple, Fun Activities to Help Children Build Confidence, Learn to Self-Regulate, and Succeed”. Most of my work has centered on relationships, depression, stress, addiction, anxiety, career, sexuality, infertility, parenting, & ADHD. But I work with anyone who wants to better themselves or their situation.


Yes, I’m an actual person! I’m married to my wonderful husband (when he does the dishes) and I’m a mom of 2 active young boys. I really enjoy working with creative individuals, as I was an actor for quite awhile. I love dogs and dark chocolate.
