MC, NCC, LPC
My treatment approach is to establish a partnership with you as the client providing support and practical feedback in resolving your problems and long-standing patterns. I feel you instinctively have the answers you are searching for but need assistance to clarify and rethink the problem along with the courage and support through it. Often, well-intentioned friends and family members are not able to offer unbiased assistance or are not willing to hear what you are truly feeling.
Blending conventional and alternative approaches, I draw on a variety of styles and techniques to incorporate what will be most helpful for each of my clients. I work with you to help build on your strengths to identify and achieve life goals.
Some areas I focus on include:
- Depression & Anxiety
- PTSD (with use of EMDR)
- Panic Attacks & Phobia
- Relationship Problems
- Medical and Health Concerns
- Stress Management
- Addiction & Recovery
- Parenting & Family Issues
- Conflict Resolution
- Bereavement (Grief/Loss)

Kerry’s own journey has provided her with empathy and insight to understand and support clients through some of life’s most challenging circumstances. Personally, Kerry and her family suffered the devastating losses of both her children. Her daughter to leukemia and son to an overdose. Kerry understands firsthand the meaning of loss, the grieving and the far-reaching issues that comes with chronic/terminal illness and the struggles of a loved one with an addiction.
