Kelly Farmer

Counseling Intern

Hello, my name is Kelly Farmer and I have a dream to support others on their journey to find a greater sense of purpose in their lives. I believe that we are here to learn, grow, feel fulfilled through meaningful relationships and to find the strength to make changes that are compatible with our happiness. I focus on these ideas as well as other existential therapy concepts.
I received a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work with a minor in Psychology from Governors State University. I’ve had the pleasure of working with various populations of all ages. I have experience working in the areas of trauma, substance abuse, and other mental health disorders. I have worked in both outpatient and inpatient psychiatry and currently am completing my Masters in clinical mental health counseling at Governors State University.

I am a registered behavior technician that has experience working with individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities. Additionally, I have spent years working with individuals who have different emotional disabilities in various therapeutic settings.

Personally, I find my greatest purpose in life to be my family. I absolutely love watching them live out their dreams. I enjoy volleyball, yoga, traveling, being in or near water, having new experiences, and mostly just spending time with my loved ones. I truly find great fulfilment in listening to others and seeing people evolve, grow, and discover happiness.
