Through counseling, she believes young individuals can develop a better understanding of their emotions, acquire healthy coping mechanisms for stress, improve their self-esteem, forge solid connections, and achieve their future goals.

Because of this, Kelsey is thrilled to work with children and adolescents in a caring, encouraging, and compassionate manner.
