Kelly Furr is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) with a teletherapy practice serving clients in North Carolina and Arizona. Her practice focuses on clients who struggle with perfectionism. She specializes in working with female athletes and others with high expectations for themselves whose attempts to be perfect leave them bogged down with stress, anxiety, depression, and/or body image issues. She also works with many LDS/Mormon clients who are working through religious perfectionism. She is an expert on faith transitions and mixed-faith marriages.
As a family therapist, Kelly approaches issues through a relational and systemic lens, meaning that gaining insight and exploring the broader context of a client’s situation is a critical component of treatment. Kelly uses cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) to help clients learn how to change unhelpful thinking and behavior. In couples counseling, Kelly uses the Gottman Method to help couples strengthen their relationship and improve communication skills. Her training is in brief therapy, and while some clients find value in an ongoing therapeutic relationship over the years, many clients put in short-term hard work and see great results.
Kelly’s good-natured, easy-going approach puts clients at ease. She is known for helping clients feel understood. Clients frequently exclaim, “Yes! That’s exactly it!” with relief when they feel deeply understood for the first time. Kelly’s therapeutic style is grounded in research-based techniques, but she’s not rigid or one-size-fits-all. She approaches each client with curiosity and as an individual. She is directed by the goals of the client and does not have a predetermined agenda for what decisions they should make. Kelly is guided by a strong desire to provide ethical, compassionate therapy and excellent customer service to her clients.
