Kelly Pajares, LPC
“The problem is the problem, the person is not the problem.” Michael White and David Epston
Opening up and sharing your thoughts and feelings with someone new can be an intimidating process. But I'm glad you've made it to my page because I believe in creating a safe space where laughter and vulnerability can coexist. Yes, you read that right – you can laugh in therapy. In fact, some of the most valuable moments in my career have involved finding humor even amidst life's heaviest burdens.
Loss, struggles with connection, navigating identity, and exhaustion from trying to live up to societal norms and expectations – are just a few examples of the burdens we may carry. Resolving these issues is my passion, and I would be honored to help you navigate them.
I'm a passionate, often quirky, authentic therapist. I am deeply committed to body positivity, and to being inclusive of neurodiversity, and I am affirming to the LGBTQIA+ community. Working from a non-judgmental and trauma-informed lens, I draw upon postmodern modalities that are attachment-based, narrative, person-centered, and relational.
From my perspective, therapy is a collaborative journey, and I will be there to listen, validate, and empower you. Whether you want to process trauma, develop self-acceptance, or explore your personal growth, I'm here to provide guidance and support every step of the way. Together, we can create a haven where you feel comfortable, supported, and understood.
