Hi, I'm Kelle Arend

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist
Registered Play therapist

I'm so glad you're here!

I'm a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist and Registered Play Therapist specializing in rekindling and fostering security and wellness in oneself and in relationships.

I'm passionate about nurturing mutual respect, joy, compassion and connection in the parent-child and parent-teen relationship, or within the relationship we have with ourselves. I'm all about helping create more conscious moments of connection and alignment, where we can feel our best. 

I enjoy working with kids, teens, adults, parents, and families collaboratively. I utilize humor, lots of authenticity, and have a gentle client led approach. My work is trauma-informed, based in Attachment Theory, Family Systems, Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Mindfulness. I believe that connecting the body and mind results in a deeper and more integrative healing, rather than just traditional talk therapy. As such, I use Somatic Therapy, Play Therapy, Sand Tray Therapy, Brainspotting and Art Therapy to help process traumas and stressors, integrate mindfulness, self compassion, gain coping skills, and reacquaint with innate wisdom that ultimately helps guide us towards healing, growth, connection and resiliency.

I am honored to be considered as part of your growth path. Gentleness, trust, compassion, felt sense of safety and relatability are important factors of change, and an essential part of the therapeutic environment I work to create. 

There is no one way to do life well - let's work it out and write an empowering narrative on what you want yours to be. A life with more laughter, purpose, connection, courage, joy, depth and 'realness'. Feeling well and good with ourselves and all our people.

"I love anything that gives off that "hygge" vibe - a quality of coziness, comfortable & lively friendliness that creates a feeling of contentment, nourishment and well-being. I love surrounding myself with good books, art, soft textures, and lots of plants. I want my space to feel like home; where you can grab a cozy spot, a cup of tea and together we do our best work to Be Well."
