Keri comes to PHS after several years of serving children through local school systems. Keri desires to provide more mental health education, support, and treatment to the community and has joined PHS to accomplish this.
Keri’s approach to therapy is that she believes that all children and teens want to do well and they can succeed in this if they have the tools they need. Keri’s clients describe her as kind, empathetic, and genuine. Together, with her clients, Keri helps people uncover the best version of themselves. She aims to see the whole person and to consider how all experiences might be impacting them. She strives to help children and families use the resources they have to create a better quality of life.
Keri specializes in providing research-based treatments to children and teens.
Keri became a therapist because she wanted to help people cope with life stressors and heal from traumatic life events. She has seen the positive impact that therapy can have on people’s lives and she wants to play her part in helping children and teens to function at their best.
Keri is a proponent of staying active to improve mental health. She personally enjoys physical activity as one of her favorite forms of self-care. She also enjoys spending time with her family, playing cards, and attending concerts.
