    “You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them”
    ~Maya Angelou

    Facing life’s challenges can feel daunting and overwhelming. Obtaining support for mental health should be applauded and viewed as essential to personal growth and fulfillment.

    I help guide people who are struggling with difficult life transitions, relationship and/or parenting issues, trauma, anxiety and depression.

     If you are trying to navigate these areas of life, I’m confident I have the experience to help you rediscover what brings you happiness. There is always a way to address the issues you face and learn coping strategies to help you right now and in the future.

    I utilize Cognitive Behavioral, Solution-Focused, Mindfulness and EMDR Therapy. It’s important to note that these therapies may be used individually or in combination, depending on your specific needs. 

    Through therapy, I can help get you on track to leading a more fulfilling life by equipping you with the tools you need to more efficiently and confidently manage life’s challenges.

    Meet Kelly Hayes, M.S., LMFT, LPCC

    I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a licensed Professional Clinical Counselor.  I have lived in the South Bay for over thirty years and have raised five children in the community.

    While my approach to therapy is empathic and compassionate, it is also direct and directive. My goal is to help clients identify the root of potential issues and work collaboratively to construct a solution. My intention is to provide support, problem-solving skills, practical tools and coping strategies to help overcome negative patterns.

    Many people look for something beyond the question, “How does that make you feel?” I hope my sessions can not only act as a sounding board, but also provide a safe space to unload, explore and develop solutions to life’s problems.
