Meet our team of therapists! Our therapists have received Master's degrees in Clinical Psychology and are receiving supervision from licensed providers while they pursue their doctorate degrees. They are skilled at providing psychotherapy for a variety of problems, and also can complete psychological assessments to address and understand many diagnoses and difficulties. They continually support each other within the clinic as well as receive rich, high-quality supervision from our supervisors and director of the Ardent Grove Clinic.
Kelly is currently working towards her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at the University of
Denver’s Graduate School of Professional Psychology. She obtained her BA in Psychology, with
a minor in Spanish and International Relations, from American University in Washington DC.
I was drawn to psychology because of the many rich possibilities to connect with and empower others. My background in international relations fostered in me an appreciation for each individual’s unique context and the way their constellation of life experiences has contributed to their current situation. Holding the emotional space and working with my clients through important growth is such a powerful and rewarding shared experience.
I am passionate about the high quality, affordable, and most importantly accessible care offered at Ardent Grove. The incredible professional team at Ardent Grove prioritizes a community dedicated to well-being and growth for everyone, both our clients and ourselves.
I love working with individuals who are open and ready for self-exploration. Being curious about what values drive them and what makes life meaningful is an important part of this process, as well as coming into contact with the challenges and barriers to living in this way.
I have extensive experience with general psychotherapy, specializing in relational difficulties, trauma, mood disorders (anxiety and depression), and OCD. I have varied experience with adolescents, teens, and adults. I’m able to be creative with my clinical approach to meet my client where they are in their journey.
Kait will receive her Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from the Graduate School of Professional Psychology in the Summer of 2020. She will then continue to pursue her doctorate. She obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Colorado Christian University in 2018.
I have always been inspired by the process of healing and growth that therapy can foster. I believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to experience that healing first-hand. I work from a relational perspective, which just means I believe that the relationship can be a primary avenue for growth and healing. I love to see my clients become more comfortable living as who they authentically are!
The Ardent Grove Foundation provides a unique opportunity for me to work with a wide variety of clients—from adolescents and adults to couples and families. I am inspired by the opportunities that Ardent Grove Foundation provides for clients to receive high-quality mental health care in an affordable and comfortable setting. I feel deeply connected and passionate about the mission of outreach and healing that Ardent Grove promotes within the Denver community.
My ideal client is someone who comes into therapy eager to work! I love when clients are curious about themselves and are truly focused on applying tools or concepts they learn about themselves to better their lives and relationships.
I have specialized training and clinical hours working in military psychology alongside veterans and individuals who have severe and persistent mental illness (SPMI). This has bolstered my ability to work with a wide variety of problems that clients may be experiencing. Finally, I have experience working with both mood disorders and substance use.
