She helps tend an individual’s entire life journey, considering patterns and personal relationships, especially the one a person has with herself. She is a depth clinician, which means Kelly makes room for exploring deeper themes and meanings guided by the storehouse of humanities, mythology, and anthropology known as archetypes or the archetypal imagination.
Kelly helps clients understand depth work in simple, practical, and soulful ways. Her belief in sacred embodiment and providing ritual for meaning-making is informed by this background.
She also specializes in treatment from a feminist theological perspective. Her research considered the anthropological menstrual rights of sacred downgoing in an applied way, grounding women back in their bodies and against the seasons and rhythms of the earth, moon, and sun. She helps her female clients safely name, deconstruct, and transform shame stories and patterns related to family of origin, societal, or cultural complex trauma.
Kelly’s personal wellness and self-empowerment is a day at a time practice of deepening embodiment. She is constantly, curiously Beginning Again.
Her experience includes close to two decades of meditation and contemplation skills, basic mindfulness and guided meditation, relational animist exploration, depth medicine circles, Reiki and other energy work.
