Staff Highlight : Interview with Kelly Counts, MFTI



1) What is your favorite thing to do in San Diego?

I absolutely love spending time at the beach with my family. I love to paddle board in the bay, snorkel in La Jolla Cove, sail the coast, sunbathe, and play in the surf. 

2) What book are you currently reading?

I am reading and studying "EMDR and Boarderline Personality Disorder" by Dolores Mosqerea. My professional reading is usually saturated with books about EMDR. In my free time I enjoy fantasy, science fiction, and young adult series. I am currently reading the Game of Thrones Series. 

3) What do you love about being a therapist?

EMDR is my greatest passion, both in theory and practice. As an EMDR Therapist, I get to join and guide my clients through deep and adaptive learning processes which allow them to come awake to the here and now. It is an honor, a privilege, and quite an exhilarating experience. I love being apart of the experience and giving this life changing gift to my clients. 

4) What types of clients do you work with? 

I work with trauma in all capacities using the full EMDR modality. All capacities means past or present incidents ranging from early life neglect and abuse, sexual assault, combat, natural disasters, loss and death, car accidents and relationship injuries. I work with adult and adolescent individuals. 

5) What is your favorite quote? 

"Out of your vulnerabilities will come your greatest strength." Dr. S. Freud
