About

As a therapist, I work to establish rapport with people. That's so important. I try to get a feel for the things people are interested in and maybe some things we have in common. OCD themes tend to be bizarre and scary, and it can be hard to share unless you trust or feel a connection with someone. Outside of work, I love to listen to podcasts and binge-watch TV shows. I keep a running list in my phone of recommendations people give me, and I usually send each person a message when I've gotten around to their recommendations.

OCD can make you feel like you're not understood. You can feel really alone. That can make it really difficult to cope when you're having an episode. But I have lived experience with OCD, and I know that therapy can work really well and really fast.

Even though this was our first session together we got started on some ERP exposures. It was definitely challenging but that makes me optimistic I'm going to improve with our work together.

Kelly is always fully engaged and is very genuine during my son's sessions.

My son was seen and he has autism. After one session we were told his OCDs were related to order and symmetry and other OCDs I saw were really related to social skills defects. And so, again after one session, we were told that sessions would only target order/symmetry OCDs. Oddly, I haven’t seen order/symmetry OCDs, but he does have many others. He is diagnosed with PANDAS/PANS as well as autism and OCDs are the number one issue with that diagnosis. It is also very common in people with autism. Also, he has been doing ABA therapy for years which targets social skills deficits. My conclusion is that this company is unwilling or unable to help adults with autism.

Kelly clearly is a person who acknowledges the human experience in therapy. Talking to her I felt as if she was truly listening not to diagnose me but to help me understand what expectations I can reach.

I love working with my therapist! I’ve started to believe it is possible for my life to not be ruled by my ocd.
