Online Counseling

Kelly only provides online counseling to clients for EMDR Intensives or Humanitarian work, both of which are typically conducted in person, but can be conducted online. Due to a full schedule, Kelly is not able to take on weekly, ongoing clients at this time.

 

Kelly specializes in working with people who have experienced or are currently experiencing trauma, stress, anxiety and/or acute stress from a recent event. Examples of types of symptoms you could be experiencing: excessive worry, change in eating habits, flashbacks, avoiding thinking about an event, high distress, hypervigilance, negative beliefs about self or others, fear, lack of sleep, disturbed dreams, constant memories about a traumatic event and more. Examples of experiences that could cause these types of symptoms: a man-made of natural disaster, abuse, an accident, vicarious trauma at work, interpersonal violence, a traumatic loss/death, health-related issues, and more.

Kelly's treatment approach of choice is EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy, which is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and shown effective for the treatment of trauma. EMDR helps us process negative feelings and change the way we think about ourselves and our memories. Because of the powerful healing effect of EMDR therapy, Intensives can produce faster results than weekly sessions using standard talk-therapy techniques. EMDR Intensives can help clients to process more information and heal quicker.

Pros to choosing therapy online:

  • You can live outside of the city of Reno and still receive therapy with Kelly.

  • You don't have to worry about traffic and can save time.

  • If you have kids, you can schedule an appointment during nap time or after the children go to bed and save money on childcare.

  • It appears that online therapy works just as effectively as in person therapy.

Identify & Measure Your Symptoms

One way to identify the symptoms you are experiencing is to take assessments to measure your symptoms of trauma, anxiety and depression. I recommend taking these assessments before and after therapy to measure your results. The Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS) measures your anxiety and depression symptoms. The PTSD Checklist for the DSM-5 (PCL-5) measures your post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms related to a specific stressful or traumatic event.
