Credentials

I believe that everybody has the right to live a fulfilling life, and that everybody deserves access to quality mental healthcare.  My goal is to facilitate growth, healing, and the development and maintenance of authentic and loving relationships.

Professional Credentials:

  •     I earned a Bachelor of Sociology degree and a Bachelor of Women’s Studies degree from Georgia State University in 2011.
  •     I earned my Master of Science degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Mercer University in 2016.
  •     I am a National Certified Counselor (NCC.) Certificate Number: NCC 759792

  • I began working at Wellspring Counseling, Coaching, and Transitions Center in February of 2017, and have enjoyed building a thriving private practice. I am currently running my practice from home via virtual counseling sessions during the COVID-19 pandemic. I plan to return to in-person sessions at the beautiful office building shared by Wellspring colleagues Tom Query, Melissa Dickinson, and Erin Renner on Memorial Drive once it is safe to do so.

I also founded a volunteer-run organization: Kelli’s Childcare Collective of Atlanta (KCCA) in 2010 and directed it until 2013. I have been passionate about organizing for the rights of marginalized communities for 12 years.
