Therapist, Virtual Site Coordinator

Kelly Robertson, MA, LMFT has years of experience working in a variety of inpatient and outpatient settings, and is currently working towards becoming a Registered Play Therapist. Her clients include children, teenagers, adults, couples, and families. On top of depression and anxiety clients, Kelly enjoys working with the LGBTQ community and body dysmorphic disorders.

First-hand experience close to home

Kelly has had personal experience dealing with depression, anxiety, ADHD, and OCD. Whether it has affected herself or loved ones, she has seen the reality of these illnesses. In other words, her first-hand experience allows Kelly to support her patients in the best way possible.

One way that her experiences have helped is her empathy. She considers herself to be sensitive and understanding of others. She wears her own emotions as a badge of honor. Likewise, she believes that everyone should be allowed to do the same, but recognizes that not everyone feels like they can. This is one reason that she loves being a therapist. She takes pleasure in supporting, encouraging, and guiding people towards their goals.

Strength-based and solution-focused treatment

Kelly uses both strength-based and solution focused approaches with patients. She believes that everyone has the potential and strength to reach their goals. This is why she works so hard to help people realize their strengths. Once they have identified those, they can build on them and move forward to where they want to be.

A rewarding career choice

Aside from the normal benefits of a job, Kelly finds her career to be very rewarding. She enjoys hearing feedback and learning about their progress or success. Last, but not least, she loves connecting with her interests, like Gilmore Girls or Harry Potter.
