Kelley's primary approach is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. CBT is the theoretical orientation we practice that focuses on the link between thoughts, behavior, and emotions. Research has demonstrated that CBT is the most efficacious form of treatment for several psychological problems, including depression and many forms of anxiety including panic disorder, phobias, generalized anxiety disorder, obsessions, and compulsions.
CBT is a present-focused approach to therapy and the emphasis is on understanding the thoughts and behaviors that maintain symptoms, testing out new behaviors, and changing your approach to your thoughts, either by challenging maladaptive thinking or learning to accept internal experience in a non-judgmental fashion.
Kelley also uses insight-oriented and psychodynamic treatment approaches to help you understand the impact of your childhood experience on your current functioning.
