Kelly Farah, BBA

Leaves Shadow

Kelly is a graduate counseling internship student working towards her master’s degree in mental health counseling with plans of obtaining her LPCC and NCC. Her interests include supporting adults and adolescents with eating disorders, anxiety and panic disorders, maladaptive behaviors, shame, self-esteem, relationship issues, and navigating life’s challenging transitions. Additionally, Kelly uses a Health at Every Size approach to support those looking to explore their complex relationships with body and food. Kelly is an LGBTQIA+ ally.


Kelly works with clients pulling from multiple modalities including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Feminist Therapy. Feeling stuck and trying to keep your head above water can be symptoms of avoiding and struggling with inner emotions and experiences. We work towards facing these deeper emotions and fostering acceptance to allow you to move forward in your life and toward growth. Kelly believes that bias, oppression, and discrimination in the cultural and political world we live in runs deep and are large contributors to mental health issues. In our sessions, we will work to uncover and understand these social factors, challenge widely accepted ideas, and help you discover and claim your unique identity while you move into your power. 


Working together, we can foster a safe and nurturing environment that promotes self-exploration, healing, and growth. We all deserve an ally to help navigate the hardships of being human. 

My Therapeutic Lens

  • The therapeutic alliance and trust between client and therapist are critical for healing and transformation to take place. I believe that unconditional positive regard, empathic understanding, and genuineness must be present in order to co-create a safe space for your growth and healing.

  • Therapy is for everyone! Everyone’s issues are valid and welcome. You don’t need a traumatic event or crisis to begin your therapeutic journey.

  • It takes courage and vulnerability to seek support in an effort to create positive change in your life and deepen your connection with yourself. I’m so glad you’re here!

  • I aim to create a safe and nurturing space to explore your thoughts, feelings, behaviors, core beliefs, experiences, and relationships. Sharing your story with an ally can bring clarity, reduce shame, and create space for healing. 

  • Using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), we can work on self-defeating behaviors while examining feelings and thoughts, interrupting maladaptive cognitions, and reframing core beliefs.
