Kellyn McRory



Hi there! I’m Kellyn McRory. Thank you for taking a few moments to check out my bio! The step towards seeking counseling is a big one; you’re already doing the work! I look forward to getting to know you and supporting you as you move further into your healing 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 have clinical experience in working with folks who live with a wide variety of issues and concerns including life transitions, anxiety, depression, grief and bereavement, chronic illness, women’s issues, stress management, and more. I have a special interest in emotional intelligence, mindfulness practices, and spiritual development in the therapy space. I believe my role as a therapist as sacred; I am here to hold space, to honor and guide when needed, and to help you connect with your Highest Self. In therapy sessions, I find myself oscillating between earnest and serious, to joking and cracking up, to being moved by your stories, and back again. Humor has a large place in my work, as laughing can be restorative and connecting!

I believe that our experiences, in this life and past lives, shape who we are, the stories we tell ourselves, and the emotional, mental, and behavioral patterns we find ourselves stuck in. My role is to help you understand your stories and transform stagnant patterns into meaningful self-wisdom. We will also work together to get you out of your head and into your body by clocking into your bodily wisdom and awareness!

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, current and chronic trauma on the mind, body, and spirit. I aim to support you as you integrate trauma using body awareness, as well as release tension, stress and build self-acceptance using somatic therapy practices.

*Note: I am a Spiritual person who is willing to safely and ethically integrate Spirit-guided healing into our work together in a free-form manner, should you feel called to it. However, my Practice is wholly my own, and this does not interfere with my work as a therapist and counselor.

If you are interested in a creative, free-form approach to therapy, somatic (body-based) practices, mindfulness, we very well may be a good therapeutic fit! If you’re reading this and thinking “Eh, I don’t know… this sounds a little ‘woo-woo’ for me…”, (I get that, trust me!) consider booking a consultation call with me to discuss further. I will always honor where you are in your journey, so let’s see if we could be a match.
