The Road to Healing Begins Here

Keilyn Goatley

Keliyn previously worked for a non-for-profit agency that provides services to children and families involved in foster care. She worked in this organization for over 2.5 years and is still passionate about children and families wellness. She has helped clients with a wide range of concerns such as trauma, depression, anxiety, PTSD, ADHD, BPD, bipolar disorder, relationship and attachment issues, parenting struggles, and struggles with motivation.

Her counseling style is laid back, interactive, and warm. She works to create a safe space for people to take off their masks and relax into who they are during sessions. She treats clients with respect and compassion utilizing cognitive-behavioral techniques, person-centered, and psychodynamic approaches. Also, since she has worked with individuals who have experienced physical and emotional trauma, she is trained with a trauma-informed approach that she utilizes in many areas of her life. Many of her clients also enjoy doing art therapy with her as a way to heal.

She has been told that her approach is comfortable, unique, and effective. By tailoring treatment to fit YOUR individual needs, she will collaborate with you to help you gain insight and healing during your time together.

Keilyn is excited to know you are here to do the work and take steps towards inner personal freedom to become a happier, healthier you. If you are ready to take that step, she will walk the path with you.

Keilyn expresses a deep sense of gratitude for the opportunity to work with you!
