Hello, I’m Kelley Flanagan!

Hello! My name is Kelley Flanagan and I am a Professional Clinical Counselor (APCC 10773). I have supported families in different ways throughout the years by being a nanny, preschool teacher and most recently working as a therapist at a non-profit for children and families impacted by various traumas. My passion lies in supporting children, adolescents, and adults in their journey towards mental and emotional well-being. 

I have earned my Bachelor’s of Science in Child and Family Development and a Master’s of Science in Child Development focusing on Early Childhood Mental Health from San Diego State University. 

I was born and raised in San Diego and haven’t found a reason to leave yet! I love spending time outside with my 3 dogs, reading and trying new restaurants!

How I Can Help

My journey as a mental health therapist has been deeply rewarding, as I’ve had the privilege of guiding young minds through pivotal stages of development. For preschool-aged children, I employ nurturing techniques to help them express and understand their emotions, laying a strong foundation for future growth. Through collaborative sessions with parents, I facilitate secure attachment bonds that are essential for fostering trust and emotional security in the parent-child relationship.Working with adolescents and teens, I recognize the unique challenges they face in today’s fast-paced world. Through empathetic listening and evidence-based strategies, I empower them to navigate issues such as identity exploration, peer relationships, and academic stressors with confidence and resilience. 

Additionally, I have extensive experience working with families to navigate various life transitions and difficulties. I provide a safe and supportive space where families can come together to explore effective communication strategies, strengthen bonds, and develop coping skills to manage challenges. I am committed to creating a collaborative and empowering therapeutic environment where clients feel heard, understood, and supported. 

I am thrilled to be joining the Family Connections Therapy Team, where we prioritize the well-being of our clients and strive to create a supportive and welcoming environment. Together, we can embark on a healing journey towards personal growth, resilience, and empowerment. I am here for you every step of the way, ready to provide counseling services tailored to your unique goals and needs. Let’s work together to achieve the positive change you desire.
