RESIDENT IN COUNSELING
Hi! I’m Kellyn McRory. The step towards seeking counseling is a big one; you’re already doing the hard work! I look forward to getting to know you and helping you move further into your counseling experience.
I am a graduate of Walden University, having majored in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I am a Resident-In-Counseling here in Virginia. I also hold a certification as a Trauma Support Specialist. I have clinical experience in working with folks who live with a wide variety of issues and concerns including anxiety, depression, life transitions, grief and bereavement, relationship issues, women’s issues, stress management, and more. I have a special interest in self-acceptance work, mindfulness practices, and perinatal mental health.
I believe that our experiences shape who we are, the stories we tell ourselves, and the emotional, mental, and behavioral patterns we find ourselves stuck in. I believe that my role is to help you process and rewrite those stories for yourself to better meet your goals and thrive within a fulfilling life.
I love working with an integrative practice; one that meets you where you are and uses various orientations to honor who you are and what you need at any given time. No matter the orientation used, I am passionate about using a trauma-informed approach that respects the impact of past and current trauma on the mind, body, and spirit.
Whether you're ready to gain better control over your thoughts and emotions, manage negative patterns in your life, or cope with a difficult life transition, counseling is a safe place to lay all of that down, even if just for a little while.
