Kelly is a corporate executive by background, with 20+ years of working across multiple industries and geographies.  She is also a qualified executive coach. She loves working with clients who are motivated to change and ready to look inward.  Often, people come to counselling with a sense of disconnect or a gut feeling that something isn’t working or isn’t where it should be.  Kelly’s own journey in therapy began with this ‘dissonance’, and she loves working with her clients to discover (or re-discover) who they really are, and what they really want.  The answers to our challenges in life nearly always lie within us, and Kelly works with her clients to build the confidence and self-belief they need to make a productive change and live a life that is true to themselves.  Inevitably, meaningful change results in uncertainty and turbulence, and Kelly’s focus on building resilience and adaptability helps her clients to navigate this change with greater clarity, calm, and purpose.

Kelly’s clients describe her as warm, open, supportive, and unconventional.  Sessions are often a mix of laughter and tears as clients work to understand and challenge themselves in a safe, caring environment. Kelly’s approach is person-centred, drawing on a range of therapeutic modalities including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Motivational Interviewing (MI); she is also a student of the Gottman Method for Couples Therapy. She has a wide range of interests including women’s identity and confidence, life transitions, trauma, healthy aging, couples & relationships, and men’s mental health. ​  She also enjoys working in underserved communities, particularly adults with special needs.

In her free time, Kelly can be found on the water or on one of Hong Kong’s beautiful trails.  She was born and raised in the US and is also an Australian citizen and Hong Kong Permanent Resident.
