My Approach to Helping

Hi, I'm Cara Kelley. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and I believe counseling provides a safe, supportive relationship where you can openly share your thoughts and feelings and learn new strategies for coping with situations and emotions. Areas of practice include: Relationships, Parenting, Career, ADHD, Aging, Caregivers, Codependency, Commitment, Communication, Divorce and Separation, Forgiveness, Guilt and Shame, Life Purpose, Midlife Crisis, Panic Attacks, Anxiety, Women's Issues, Workplace Issues, Young Adult Issues.

I use several different approaches or theories in therapy as I believe no one approach fits all clients. I use Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, Client Centered and several others, depending on the client and the situation. I believe that one must take a holistic approach to overall health. The mind, body and spirit are so intimately connected that one most certainly influences the others.
