My vision is to utilize the healing properties of nature, while providing genuine connection and effective mental health care that is tailored to the individual, in order to empower clients to live their most authentic lives and continue their healing journey beyond the counseling office.
where healing occurs outside of the office
welcome to hemlock
Hemlock Counseling Services is a safe, empowering space where distressed adults can heal their mental health, learn to trust their body & mind, and express & regulate their emotions, so that they can develop into the healthiest, most authentic versions of themselves- while also enjoying nature. I believe that everyone has the capacity to grow when given the right support, and that there is no cookie-cutter model for meeting our unique therapeutic needs. My job is to equip you to continue your healing independently, outside of the therapy office.
I’m a real, authentic human who helps folks find a little comfort and make some sense of this experience called life.
My therapeutic approach is a humanistic blending of evidence-based, person-centered practices such as CBT, Mindfulness, Inner-Child / Parts Work, with Outdoor Recreation.
If you wrestle with anxiety, existential worries, or any kind of heaviness, and are ready to put in the work to feel better, you’ve come to the right place.
how we can work together
Clinical, therapeutic support for adult individuals (20+) who are seeking an evidence-based and holistic approach to mental health care.
Support for the therapist who’s wanting to learn how to incorporate walk-and-talk outdoor sessions into their business practices.
Kelsee also offers dynamic keynote speaking & presentations.
Next Chapter Coaching is highly personalized 1:1 mentorship for individuals who are experiencing a major life transition.
we might be a good fit if...
You’re no stranger to self-help resources. It feels like you’ve tried everything! From books to podcasts, instagram psychologists, meditation apps, and #TherapyTok. You’ve seen some improvements, but aren’t quite where you wanna be yet.
This is your first time considering therapy OR you’re ready to give it a second chance - either way, you’re a little apprehensive and excited at the same time.
You’re down to be challenged (gently) and consider new ways of thinking and behaving.
You’re not one to sit passively on the couch and let therapy happen to you. You’re ready to put in the effort beyond our 60-minutes together to make some serious mental health gains.
You’re curious about why you are the way that you are and are in search of deeper insight.
Sitting still and serious for a long time is challenging for you. You tend to learn and process in a more laid-back environment with freedom to fidget. You don’t like being put in a box.
You’re drawn to people who keep it real, can laugh at themselves, are endlessly curious, and who are interested in lifelong self-expansion.
You love the outdoors and moving your body, and holistic health is a value of yours.
You’re able and willing to make the financial investment and commit to showing up for the therapeutic process- because you believe your mental health is worth it.
Deep down, you know you’re capable of more. You just need a nudge in the right direction, and the right kind of cheerleader.
if this sounds like you, i bet we'd make a great match.
what hemlock clients are saying
"I appreciate that you always meet me where I’m at. You’ll drop the agenda if I have a more immediate need."
