About Anika Kelso

AS OF 7/1/20, I AM NOT ACCEPTING ANY NEW CLIENTS EXCEPT ON A WAITING LIST. At this time, due to the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic, we are only offering secure, confidential, HIPAA compliant VIDEO sessions. Santa Fe Supportive Therapy, LLC is a group of seasoned, ethically sound therapists who provide therapy in a positive, strengths-based manner that emphasizes individualized approaches in partnership with our clients. Our therapists have a variety of clinical skills and all accept insurance. I really enjoy working with teens and young adults. I also work with adults of all ages. Most of my clients are working on resolving gender identity, sexuality and sexual orientation concerns, low self-esteem, self-identity issues, depression, anxiety, social fears, parenting issues, parent-child conflicts, and family communication difficulties, among other problems. As a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, I have a particular interest in supporting gender non-conforming people and the community as a whole. I use what is called an eclectic approach with my clients, which means that I draw upon many different therapeutic approaches and theories and use what seems needed in any given situation. One of the main approaches I draw from is cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), but I also draw from solution-oriented therapy, mindfulness and self-awareness techniques, feminist therapy, and narrative therapy. I support my clients in a non-judgmental exploration of outdated beliefs and behaviors though which they become empowered to choose alternative beliefs and behaviors, which allows for healing and growth. If I don't feel like the right therapist for you, we will assess your needs and refer you to one of our therapists who better matches your unique personality and situation.
