Approach to Counseling

Counseling with Kelly

My approach to counseling is strengths-based and honest.  I have a psychodynamic psychological perspective.  This includes archetypal, attachment theory, humanist theory, object relations, and self-psychology.  I believe in strategic use of both CBT and DBT therapies.  

I want to help us see, and actively engage, your inner world as a means of consciously creating your outer world.  My commitment to you is an atmosphere of unconditional acceptance.   We will explore your inner world, your thoughts, feelings and experiences, to learn how to empower your choices and make lasting changes in your life. 

Women’s/Wisdom Work

Contact me about my women’s wisdom workshops and wisdom forums, or one-on-one coaching.  See my about me cover page or separate Women’s Wisdom page for information.


I see clients in my office in San Juan Capistrano, California; and or in Ocean Pines, Maryland, by appointment.  

I am also available over Skype.


Contact me for further information or to figure out if we might be a good match to work together!  Coaching officially begins when Consent for Coaching  has been discussed together and agreed upon in writing.


A payment arrangement is required prior to the beginning of coaching. Payment is required at the end of each session unless otherwise arranged. Fees are $100/hr unless otherwise negotiated.  

I offer a sliding scale as needed, and accept checks, cash, and Paypal. 


All information disclosed within our sessions is entirely confidential. There will be no information revealed to anyone not present in our session without the client’s permission or permission from a legally authorized representative.  I currently do not see minors as clients for coaching.

Cancellation Policy

Once we have mutually agreed upon a coaching schedule, please be mindful of your regular attendance. Appointments cancelled with less than 24-hour notice will be charged a cancellation fee of $30 unless rescheduled for another time the same week.

Termination Policy

It is your right to terminate our sessions at any time. My professional responsibility is to continue to maintain your confidence and the safe space for your self-awareness. In the event that you should wish to choose my services again in the future, termination of our sessions requires of me to continue to treat our relationship as a professional one. When considering termination, advance notice or discussion is encouraged and welcomed.

I look forward to hearing from you!  Contact me at (410) 703-5902, or fill out the following contact form.
