About Kelly Kettlewell
Kelly is a licensed psychologist who earned her Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from the University of Maryland in 2007.
Kelly strives to create an environment of trust and safety with each student and values the healing that can take place when students feel heard without judgment, seen for all of who they are, and deeply understood. She focuses on helping students gain insight into their feelings, thoughts, and actions. Kelly integrates a variety of counseling techniques in her work which often includes a focus on emotions, interpersonal patterns, and early experiences within one's family, culture, and surrounding environment.
Kelly's goal is to meet students where they are and create a meaningful therapy relationship that, in turn, helps students make meaningful changes.
Outside of the CSDC, Kelly enjoys spending time with her family and friends, reading, and cooking.
