Professional statement

Keely works well with a wide array of clients and therapeutic issues. She sees adolescents and adults (age 14+). She is a LGBTQ+ affirming therapist and welcomes all individuals regardless of sexual orientation, expression, gender, and lifestyle. Her approach to therapy is client-centered. She listens carefully and speaks the language of each client she works with to create a meaningful and personal experience in therapy. It is important to her to build a strong therapeutic alliance with each of her clients. She draws upon several types of therapy in her work. Her integrative approach includes CBT, DBT, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), mindfulness-based therapy, relaxation training, and Solution-Focused therapies. She is trained and certified in Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART). ART is a type of therapy that helps people move past trauma and stop feeling so stuck. It is effective with trauma as well as general adverse life events, depression, and problems with self concept. This is a powerful method of therapy that can provide rapid results and healing in a short amount of time (1-5 sessions).

Keely has been working in the field for over 15 years with experience in several settings, including Partial Hospitalization, outpatient, and in-home therapy. She is able to provide in-person therapy or telemedicine (online) sessions. Her office is located in Nurture, a wellness marketplace in Denver. She is pleased to join this community of health and wellness providers and services because it allows her clients to take advantage of holistic health and fitness services that can compliment their therapy.
