With over a decade of clinical experience, Kelly founded Bottom Up Trauma Therapy PLLC to foster her passion of helping others on their healing journey. Kelly earned two Master’s Degrees, one in Social Work and another in Human Sexuality Education, as well as a Certificate in Advanced Graduate Study in Human Sexuality Education from Widener University. Kelly provides individual and relationship therapy for adults. Over the years, she has worked with diverse populations and issues. Kelly is dedicated to deepening her clients’ understanding of their own healing-centered engagement. She is trained in multiple modalities to address emotional, physical, sexual, and relational trauma, such as, Post Induction Therapy, Reiki, Cellular Release Therapy®, Somatic Experience®, and Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercise (TRE®). Additionally, Kelly is a Certified Sexual Addiction Therapist and understands compulsive or problematic sexual behaviors that may arise with a small percentage of individuals.
Sex therapy and Kink Aware therapy can address concerns about sexual function and desire, sexual feelings, sexual trauma, intimacy, and relationship issues. Kelly's education and career have provided her with specialized knowledge and training around the diverse ways in which people choose to explore their sexuality and/or gender, alongside lifestyles sometimes described and polyamorous, kink and/or BDSM. Her therapeutic practice has no intention of discouraging any kink practices and distinguishes the differences between healthy BDSM practices and non-consensual abuse. The goal is for the client to feel accepted and understood, without judgement, and free from unnecessary questioning.
