Kevin Kelly MSW, LICSW
I see individuals and couples. One of my best strengths as a therapist is working respectfully with men who would rather not be in therapy. I understand why many men are skeptical about therapy, or uncomfortable talking about feelings, and I do not get judgemental or impatient about this. Men who are concerned that in couple therapy they might be ganged up on and blamed will find that I don’t do this, to them or their partner. And of course I also enjoy working with women, and with men who are comfortable with therapy!
In individual therapy my primary approach is Internal Family Systems. With couples, my primary approach is Emotionally Focused Therapy. I help individual clients learn to handle difficult thoughts and feelings more effectively, be kind to themselves, live in the present, and take effective action according to what they care about. I help couples strengthen their attachment bond, so their relationship can be a more consistent source of love and support.
I have a collaborative, non-judgmental style of doing therapy. I help people with relationship problems, stress management, depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, anger problems, addictive and compulsive behaviors, procrastination and underachievement, and issues of identity, meaning and purpose.
Here is the form I'd like you to print out, complete, and bring to the first session. If you are a couple, only one of you needs to fill this out. If you are a couple using insurance, the one of you whose insurance you are using should fill it out (This person does not have to be the policy holder. They just need to be insured).
