Hello! My name is Bobbi Kelsey and I am a licensed clinical social worker licensed in Michigan and in Oklahoma. I graduated from the University of Buffalo in 2011 and have approximately 12 years of diverse experience. I have worked with a wide variety of clients and concerns including depression, anxiety, healing from trauma/PTSD, adjustment to life transitions, grief/loss, sexual issues, and pregnancy, prenatal, and postpartum care.
I know one of the most crucial and oftentimes challenging parts of the therapeutic process is taking the first steps to reach out and make the first appointment. I recognize the importance of finding the right fit between client and therapist, and as such, I offer a warm, flexible, and accepting client-centered approach to treatment. I will often utilize several different treatment modalities to best fit your individual needs and goals. My educational and professional background is trauma informed and I have been trained in EMDR for over 5 years.
If you are ready to take the first steps toward meaningful change in your life and feel like I would be a good fit for a therapist to walk that journey with you, then I look forward to hearing from and working with you.

She's the first therapist I've found to actually give me the tools I need to actually grow and heal.

Bobbi has been consistent, helpful, insightful, and understanding the whole time I've been seeing her. I will continue to use BH particularly because I want to continue seeing Bobbi specifically. She has helped me through a tremendous amount already and I never feel judged by her, even when I am being my most vulnerable.
