More About Kelly Mayer

Clinical Interests:

Trauma, attachment, emotional dysregulation, and mood disorders.

Clinical Approach:

I view all clients through a trauma-informed lens, particularly looking at how one’s core beliefs are developed over the lifespan. I am trained and certified in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and believe strongly in the power of healing through somatic reprocessing. I believe in the resiliency of all individuals and the belief that everyone is doing the best they can with the skill sets they have. I enjoy supporting clients in evolving their skills to function most effectively across all environments.


In my free time, you can find me with an espresso in hand spending time with my husband, two young children, and our golden retriever! I enjoy time with family, traveling, exercise, and listening to Taylor Swift on repeat.
