About Kelini

I am committed to supporting both individuals and couples through life’s challenges. I specialize in trauma, anxiety, life transitions, and self-esteem issues. When working with couples specifically, I work to disarm each partner so that they can learn to listen again. I meet every client ‘where they are’ in order to foster self-awareness, curiosity and the desire to grow.

My goal is to create a safe space for clients to process and feel that they can always be their truest selves. I make sure clients know that I am not the ‘expert’ at their lives but rather they are. I help the client to understand that not only are they learning from me, but I from them as well.

In the past, I was a Licensed Treatment Foster parent which provided me with the awareness needed to handle clients of all ages with gentle care. In addition, I have a special interest in narcissistic partner/parental abuse and support for first/second generation immigrants in navigating cultural and societal pressures. I make it my priority to continually educate myself in modalities that will allow me to be the best clinician I can be for any client I meet.

When I am not working, I enjoy cardio, strength training, aromatherapy, exploring museums, ‘brunching’ with friends and spending time with my son.
