Dr. Kylene Kelly graduated from California State University, Fullerton with a B.A. in Psychology, Pepperdine University Graduate School of Education and Psychology with a M.A. in Clinical Psychology, and Argosy University with a Doctorate in Counseling Psychology. She stated, “I believe that everyone can benefit from therapy. It is a safe place where someone can come and talk about what has been going on for them without judgment or shame. I provide a space where you can feel safe, heard, and understood. As we explore your world, we will be creating a style designed specifically to meet your needs and goals. I strive to create a compassionate, non-judgmental environment for clients to learn, grow, explore, challenge, and live the happy healthy life they have always wanted. I specialize in working with adults with anxiety, depression, substance abuse, PTSD/trauma, complex/developmental trauma, relationship problems, chronic pain, and LGBTQIA issues.
A large part of my work has been related to substance abuse, dual diagnosis, and trauma. I draw on aspects of mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, humanistic, psychodynamic, and object relations to assist clients in improving their symptoms, relationships, self-image, and coping strategies.
