Kelsey is currently closed to new clients and working from a waitlist.
Kelsey is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) and a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). She is also the only AASECT Certified Sex Therapist (CST) in Kalamazoo. Kelsey only accepts new clients for couples therapy and is especially passionate about working with parents.
Kelsey holds her master’s degree in marriage, couple, and family counseling along with a certificate in holistic health and wellness from Western Michigan University. She has completed the Level 2 Training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy and the Sexual Health Certificate Program for Sex Therapy through the University of Michigan.
As a holistic-minded therapist, Kelsey believes the counseling process is collaborative in nature between the counselor and the client. She strives to work together with clients to identify and challenge current thought patterns and lifestyle choices, strategizing on successful ways to make positive, lifelong changes. While working with couples, her goal is to assist in identifying areas of strength in the relationship, provide education in healthy relationship patterns, and walk with her clients as they navigate creating new interaction patterns leading to a happier and stronger partnership.
She sees therapy as a process of exploration intended toward personal growth and increased well-being. It is an opportunity to examine old ways of relating to oneself and explore new ways of interacting. She uses a whole body approach to guide clients in becoming more self-aware and finding the strength to initiate long term positive change for themselves.
In addition to her work as a therapist, she has worked as a Certified Birth Doula and a Certified Yoga Instructor with two years of experience leading guided breathing and meditative exercises. Kelsey was previously a part-time university instructor for career development and professional training where she had almost four years of experience as a career counselor.
Her specific training includes pregnancy and birth, couples conflict management, art therapy, substance abuse, mindfulness, yoga therapy, career development, and whole body counseling. She is an ally to the LGBT community and seeks to create a safe space for clients to come as they are.
Kelsey especially enjoys working with couples/relationships in areas related to relationship communication / conflict, intimacy (physical and emotional), “passion,” fertility (pregnancy, postpartum, infertility), and parenthood.
