Paul Kelly MA 

Paul MA  received his MA from University Park. Paul's experience involves working with a diverse population including individuals, couples, adults, adolescents and children. With a multicultural view I have worked with individuals from many cultures and ethnicity. I have particular interest in working with adolescents and individuals experiencing substance use disorder and those adjusting to life after incarceration. My philosophy is that even though we are individuals, we are all connected through a natural energy. It is with this connection that enables us to work through our problems no matter the circumstances, dilemmas, or problems we face without the fear of being alone.

My Story

I am a Masters level Therapist who is committed to partnering with clients to identify strategies that can help them work through life’s difficulties. It does not matter the circumstances, situation, dilemma or problem, I am interested in working with you through your journey. I will honor your goals by using the appropriate evidenced based techniques to assist you in reaching those goals. I use an existential approach therapy while incorporating several other therapeutic approaches such as cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, dialectical behavioral therapy, mindfulness and a strength-based approach. To assist us in accomplishing your goals and living a more fulfilled life

Often life can seem to be out of control, and our choices seems to be limited. There is some truth to this only if we chose to accept it as such. We become more capable of making the appropriate choices once we become more aware of the situations, we find ourselves in. If you decide to become my client, together we can explore the choices available to you and create the appropriate coping skills to help you through those seemly uncontrollable moments in your life. Whether we are experiencing depression, anxiety, substance use disorder, loss, unexpected events, or just feeling overwhelmed. We can work together to help you gain back the control needed to live a more meaningful life. I offer a safe and confidential therapeutic environment where you can freely unpack the unwanted baggage’s of life.

 

I utilize an integrative approach that combines different therapeutic approaches to best fit each client’s needs and goals. My approach is influenced but not limited to CBT, DBT, Psychodynamic, Psycho therapy, Solution Focused, Strength Based, Interpersonal Therapy, Mindfulness and Strength Based therapy. I also enjoy integrating a creative arts therapy approach and games because it allows my clients to express their own unique thoughts, feelings, and emotions.  I believe that everyone has a hard time sometimes, and I understand that engaging in effective treatment can help you get through it.
