Therapy for individuals and couples through a trauma-informed lens in a comfortable and casual space.
Green Couch Counseling provides individual, couples, and family therapy - including premarital counseling. I specialize in working with clients wanting to heal from trauma, family dysfunction, and narcissistic abuse. I also enjoy working with anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder. If you are interested in working with me, regardless of the issue, please reach out and we can decide together if I'm a good fit. There is never any pressure and I'm happy to help you find the right therapist for your goals.
Clinical Social Work/Therapist, MSW, LCSW
Kelly Geers founded Green Couch Counseling in 2023. Her passion is working with people who are navigating painful relationships.
You already have the answers you need. All you need is someone to listen as you figure out what you already know or encourage you to make the changes you need. You may need permission to take a step, set a boundary, or leave an unhealthy relationship. Counseling allows you to let down walls, process pain, and gain insight from a trusted, neutral person without fear of judgment. I work with teens, adults, and couples experiencing relational pain, anxiety, depression, and various life transitions.
I received my Master of Social Work with a concentration in social justice and diversity from the University of Toronto in 2006. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in North Carolina, I have worked extensively with survivors of abuse and sexual assault - including narcissistic abuse. I have experience working in several healthcare settings, counseling families as they manage chronic health issues, make end-of-life decisions, and cope with grief and loss. I also partner with the Reclamation Collective and am passionate about providing support during religious trauma recovery. I believe you are the expert in your life, and I will never suggest otherwise. If you don't find yourself in this list of "issues", it doesn't mean we won't be a good fit. Research shows that the most critical aspect of successful therapy is simply the connection between the therapist and the client.
I know how much courage and vulnerability it takes to reach out and ask for help. Your story matters to me, and I look forward to talking with you.
