Counseling Staff

Kelly is a staff counselor at the Center for Health and Wellbeing. She received her undergraduate degree in Psychology and Wellness and Alternative Medicine from Northern Vermont University, and her Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Vermont. Most recently she worked as a staff therapist at Northern Vermont University, and in private practice in Burlington. She has a strong passion for working in college counseling centers, and enjoys working with students through these profoundly formative years. She is currently working towards licensure as a Clinical Mental Health Counselor in Vermont, and holds the National Certified Counselor certification.

Her work is grounded in the belief that growth and healing best occurs through an affirming, collaborative, holistic, warm space. She draws from training in attachment, mindfulness and mind/body healing to offer an engaged, intuitive approach based on your needs and interpersonal style. She enjoys working with clients to examine patterns of relating with self and others, while holding space for understanding the ways our identities can impact a person's experiences and wellness. Her areas of special interest include anxiety, body-image and eating concerns, depression, identity development, relationship concerns, and trauma healing. Kelly is committed to providing an LGBTQIA+ affirming space that is validating for individuals of all identities.
