Kelly Bazan New Life Counseling

Welcome to New Life Counseling and pursuing the first step to a positive, goal-oriented relationship for you and those you love! My name is Kelly and it is my desire to meet you where you are: helping you to understand yourself better, resolve conflict, gain skills, celebrate strengths and live your best life.

My first career consisted of working in public education as a teacher, instructional coach, and consultant with children, teens, and families. After twenty-five years, I felt God calling me to shift my lens from academic achievement to mental health counseling. Answering His call has helped me to effectively assist individuals and families through an authentic, more personal connection in a therapeutic setting.

My clientele population encompasses children, adolescents, adults and families. I am prepared to partner with you using many different therapeutic modalities ranging from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to play based therapy based on your individual needs. Additionally, I have training in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR). This modality is designed to heal stressful and traumatic life experiences by decreasing the strong emotions associated with those experiences. My journey raising two children, being married for almost thirty years, and embracing my own personal growth have also helped equip me to work well with you and your family.

Please contact the office to make an appointment if you would like to work together. I partner with clients at the West Des Moines location.

I am looking forward to meeting you!
