Hello, I am Wanda Kellyman, a dedicated and highly qualified professional specializing in mental health and personal development. My extensive qualifications include National Certified Counselor, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor, Board Certified Life Coach, and Mindfulness Practitioner. With these credentials, I've honed my expertise in providing transformative therapy and guidance to individuals seeking personal growth and healing. My therapeutic approach is rooted in holism and strength-based principles. I understand that each person is a complex being with interconnected aspects of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Rather than focusing solely on problems or deficits, I empower my clients by highlighting their innate strengths and resources, helping them effectively navigate life's challenges. To create a more engaging and dynamic therapeutic process, I integrate various forms of creative expression into my sessions. Through poetry, art, music, meditation, and movement, I encourage clients to explore and communicate their inner emotions and thoughts. This creative dimension not only fosters self-expression but also deepens self-awareness and introspection, leading to profound personal insights and growth. By harmonizing my certifications, experiences, and passion for holistic well-being, I strive to cultivate a supportive and compassionate environment where individuals can flourish and embark on their unique journeys of self-discovery and transformation. I firmly believe in the immense potential within each person to lead a fulfilling and purposeful life, and I am wholeheartedly committed to guiding them on that empowering path toward mental and emotional well-being. The overarching theme of my approach can be summarized in three words: Engagement, Empowerment, and Bliss. Through engagement in creative and reflective processes, clients find the power to empower themselves and ultimately achieve a state of blissful well-being.
What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?
In our first session together, you can anticipate a genuinely positive and transformative experience. We will begin our journey to explore your incredible potential for personal growth, healing, and overall well-being using a holistic and creative approach. I'm committed to creating an environment where you feel engaged, empowered, and on the path to finding your sense of bliss. This first session sets a promising tone for our therapeutic journey, and I'm here to support and guide you every step of the way.
What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?
I employ an integrated therapeutic approach that acknowledges healing on both emotional and unconscious levels. My method involves incorporating various modalities into counseling sessions, allowing clients to access a diverse range of techniques tailored to their unique needs. Throughout our work together, I prioritize the client's active role in the process, while I serve as a facilitator. My approach is characterized by a strong emphasis on acceptance, empathy, and authenticity. I create a therapeutic environment where clients can embark on a journey of self-discovery, fostering their pursuit of well-being. This approach is designed to provide a holistic and personalized framework for clients to achieve their therapeutic goals.
Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.
I specialize in a range of therapeutic approaches, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Strength-Based, Trauma-Focused, Motivational Interviewing, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). These modalities allow me to offer tailored support for a variety of concerns. My expertise extends to working with clients across different age groups, including adolescents, adults, and seniors. I've successfully helped individuals and families navigate issues related to ADD/ADHD, depression, and family dynamics. I emphasize a strengths-based approach, empowering clients to recognize their inherent resilience and capabilities. Additionally, my trauma-focused training equips me to guide clients through healing from past traumatic experiences. Using Motivational Interviewing, I help clients explore and enhance their motivation for change, and in ACT, I assist them in accepting difficult thoughts and emotions while taking committed action. My knowledge of DBT equips clients with valuable skills for emotion regulation and interpersonal effectiveness. Overall, my goal is to provide a supportive, collaborative, and empowering therapeutic environment tailored to your unique needs, fostering lasting positive change and well-being.
