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.
RELATIONSHIPS / COUPLES
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.

FERTILITY / PARENTING
