Keli Hemingway, LCSW

Hi, I’m Keli Hemingway (She, Her, Hers), a therapist with twenty-five years of experience.  I’m the mother of two children, the grandmother of three, a lover of the outdoors, and an animal enthusiast.  I’m an empathetic, open-minded, welcoming therapist who accepts you for who you are.  My style is to be respectful and gentle while being honest and direct.  Most therapists never share anything about themselves with their clients.  My approach is different, and if I’ve had a personal experience that may help you to heal, I will briefly share it with you.  My goal is to help you transform and heal. 

Sometimes, clients think that nobody can understand their pain and feel “UNfixable.” My specialty is helping you feel in control of your life, destiny, and emotions.  

Do you want to go deep and get to the root cause of your current problems and transform them?  We can do that.  We can work together to change how distressing memories, feelings, and images are stored in your mind.  We’ll use highly effective therapeutic tools so you can move past the limitations that prevent you from having the life you desire. 

Let’s work together as a team so that we can focus on your specific therapeutic goals. We’ll measure your successes every step to ensure you’re getting the results you want. 

Weekly therapy sessions are as easy as opening your computer from your home or office and logging on for our sessions.

During our first session, you can share with me what’s happening in your life that is distressing and problematic. We’ll talk about your history because all experiences in your life contribute to the person you are today. I will begin to put together the pieces of the puzzle of your life to understand your world and how I can help you the most. Then we’ll talk about your goals and how you want to behave and feel in your life. I’ll ask you if you have a preference for the type of therapeutic modality that we use.

You may be interested in EMDR, advanced Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or Hypnotherapy.  I’m trained in all these techniques because they can be used together to provide you with the best therapeutic results.  They all provide excellent and measurable results.  I know you want to feel better. 

I know you want to feel calm, joyous, and proud of who you are.

My advanced training in CBT, Hypnotherapy, and EMDR  and twenty-five years’ experience means I have the expertise you need and deserve when looking to heal from the troubles that caused you to seek therapy.  But at the end of the day, you want to know you’re working with someone who “gets” what it means to be an adult struggling with anxiety, depression, anger, PTSD, habits and addictions.

I get it because I intentionally worked in all possible environments to understand all aspects of human suffering.  Some of these environments I’ve worked in include battered woman’s shelters, medical and psychiatric hospitals, prisons, juvenile detention centers, community-based outpatient treatments centers, emergency departments, psychiatric crisis services, and substance abuse/detox centers.  I also get it because I’ve suffered from anxiety and have experienced trauma in my life.  So, when we work together, you won’t just get a trained therapist.  You’ll get someone who truly understands what you’ve been going through.

I am truly a seeker of knowledge and love getting trained in new modalities to help my clients even further.  I constantly attend training and workshops.  I am currently studying polyvagal theory and somatic psychotherapy.  Learning excites me just as much as working with people does.

Kind words from clients
