Kerry Järvi Therapist Bio

About Kerry Järvi 

Smiling Picture of Kerry JarviSeeking help is never easy, but you’re demonstrating strength and resiliency by looking for support. I believe we are products of our past, the people we surround ourselves with, and the culture we live in. Through conscious effort we can work together to strengthen the parts of yourself you love and make changes to help you grow into your ideal self. We will work to understand the impact of outside influences on your identity as we explore your experiences. I will listen without judgement so you can be seen the way you want to be seen. I want to hear your story and learn what’s important to you.

As a geek, I have felt the loneliness and rejection that can come with caring deeply about a hobby or topic. In our work together, we’ll connect on the things you’re passionate about in order to build upon and use your personal strengths for growth. We will empower you to build resilience, meet your goals, and navigate the stresses of everyday life.

As a gamer, I know play is a great way to connect. My approach to therapy is to incorporate humor and playfulness to keep it engaging. I believe in full honesty and transparency so we can enjoy an open therapeutic relationship. Through our conversations we can build a future you want to be a part of. Reach out to learn how we can create that future together.
