Kealy Spring is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California. Often those she works with are driven professionals who are struggling with imposter syndrome, perfectionism, communication issues, anxiety or depression. While she is trained in many therapeutic modalities and never thinks there is a one size fits all approach to therapy, she uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques as well as Hakomi or somatic work as a backbone to her practice. She is also a Leadership, Career and Communication Coach which informs her style and approach to therapy.
In addition to her M.S. in Counseling Psychology, Kealy also has an M.A. in Communication and has worked in the corporate world both in the US as well as in Australia. As a result, she truly understands how greatly one's job can impact their mental health.
Kealy's goal is never to keep someone indefinitely in therapy, rather she aims to help those she works with find tools to more effectively navigate the challenges of their work and personal lives. Her approach is two fold; symptom relief as well as exploration of where behaviors, thoughts and feelings are coming from. This helps others gain short term relief as well as to uncover and give less power to in the long run to those things that get in an individual or couple's way.
During the pandemic, Kealy has been offering telehealth (video and phone) sessions. However, her office is in downtown SF in the historic Hobart building and will be offering a combination of video and in-person options starting in the fall. She offers afternoon and evening appointments during the workweek.
