She lives in Westbrook with her husband and in the summer she captains sailing excursions on Casco Bay.


Philosophy –

The more we understand ourselves and our children, the more we’ll be able to help. Kelly’s approach is to identify the areas that can be strengthened and shore up the areas that need support. She uses Sensory Integration, Developmental Tasks and Empathy as tools to build connection.
