Hello! I am Kelly Saylor and I am a licensed clinical mental health counselor, licensed marriage and family therapist and co-founder of SureHope Counseling & Training Center. My education includes a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from UNCC and a master’s degree in Christian counseling from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.

I have a varied background which includes work in a psychosocial clubhouse (helping those with mental challenges learn social and job related skills), pregnancy resource center, hospitals, Hospice organizations, mental health and family private practices and church. I have worked with children, adolescents, adults, couples, families and groups.

I specialize in counseling couples concerning dating, engagement and marital issues. I also offer couple intensives and train other therapists and church staff in working with couples. Concerning mental health, I work with adults who deal with the challenges of anxiety, depression, and trauma. Counseling individuals dealing with sexual abuse is another area of expertise of mine. Lastly, working with individuals facing life’s transitional struggles is another area I enjoy; these include: adapting to college, career planning, preparing to be parents and transitioning into retirement.

I am uniquely trained as a Christian counselor. I believe that we are whole persons, with physical, psychological, social and spiritual aspects. Whether we include discussion of the spiritual dimension of life in our time together will be up to you. This spiritual perspective is integrated with the perspectives of narrative, solution focused, cognitive-behavioral and family systems understandings of how people work. These are well-established and researched methods of therapy that are widely respected as being effective.

Overall, I am dedicated to helping individuals, couples, and families navigate life’s peaks and valleys with integrity, wisdom and joy!
