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 client led approach. My work is trauma-informed, based in Attachment Theory, Family Systems and Mindfulness. I use Somatic Experiential 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, connection, courage, joy, depth and 'realness'. Feeling well and good with ourselves and all our people.
