We all have ups and downs, and these roadblocks in particular can wreak havoc on our ability to function in our daily lives. Kelly believes counseling can help individuals learn to tap into their own unique strengths, learn to calm the mind, and focus on feeling better. She is real, open, non-judgmental, and helps clients discover options, redefine realities, develop and attain goals, and build effective skills that can improve quality of life.

Kelly welcomes adults, adolescents, and children who are experiencing issues such as chronic pain and illness, family and relationship issues, anxiety, depression, ADHD, stress, grief, and loss utilizing evidence based therapies such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, and Existential Therapy that have been shown to improve the way we relate to stress.

Kelly’s professional career has ventured from corporate marketing and management to creative self-employment as a photographer to a meaningful career in counseling. She also lives with chronic pain and illness, and can easily relate to the challenges of balancing work, family, social life, and spirituality. She feels her secrets to managing her own personal stressors are self-awareness, embracing change, self-compassion, mindfulness, and creating purpose and goals in life.

Kelly works out of ROCC’s Richardson office. To schedule an appointment directly with her, please call 214-865-9448 or email at

Evening and weekend appointments are available.

Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen.
