Approach and Philosophy

Approach and Philosophy

Kelsey specializes in trauma therapy, including family of origin issues (boundary setting, understanding impact of parental attachment) and has much experience working with children and teens.

First and foremost, Kelsey's approach to therapy is holistic, she encourages you to look at all areas of your life when talking about the difficulty you bring to the session. What got you here? Are there patterns in your life that are no longer serving you? Let's work on processing hard things and making small changes to improve your life.

Therapy is an important investment in yourself and Kelsey takes her role as the facilitator of your therapy very seriously.

"I am entrusted with people's most important stories and I hold space for suffering and difficult emotions. I am motivated to do this work by the amazing people I get to meet and seeing people's self-investments pay off. I am constantly amazed by what humans are capable of when given the space to feel heard and understood" - Kelsey Sharpless.

Kelsey is trained in a variety of modalities and approaches that she can pull from depending on what you are presenting with, some of which include:

- Trauma Therapy

- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

- Dialectical Behavioural Therapy

- Narrative Therapy

- Mindfulness-based interventions

- Motivational Interviewing

- Theraplay and attachment-based interventions

- Play Therapy

- Anti-oppressive, anti-racist and LGBTQ+ informed practice
