- Hi, My name is Diane Kelley and I am an experienced Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional. I received my Bachelors of Social Work from Long Island University, my Master of Social work from New York University and advanced training in Trauma care.. I have worked in Mental Health Outpatient Clinics and Community Centers, Recovery programs and Private Practice dealing with a large variety of mental health and substance abuse issues.
When people come to see me, they are usually in some sort of pain, whether it is anxiety, depression, guilt, trauma, addiction, shame or experiencing some sort of loss. Pain in itself is not a bad thing. It is our body informing us that something is wrong and needs to be changed. Therapy is simply learning healthier ways to deal with our lives and emotions and learning that we are not alone in how we feel.
We spend years going to school to improve how we deal with the world and even to improve how we drive our cars, Why wouldn’t we take the time to learn ways to improve how we live our lives? If you are in pain and don’t know why, come talk to me and together we will figure it out.
