Hello! I’m Kelsey Brewer
Licensed Professional Counselor
I received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Texas Tech University in 2013 and my Master of Science in Clinical Psychology in 2015. As a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), I am trained to help anyone with a wide variety of psychological or mental health struggles. I specialize in trauma therapy and am certified to provide EMDR therapy.
Before moving into private practice, I worked at Voice of Hope dba Lubbock Rape Crisis Center where I helped those who have experienced and are affected by sexual violence. Prior, I worked at Allegiance Behavioral Health, which is a company that works with the elderly, to counsel them through grief, life transitions, family struggles, and many other things. I have worked in inpatient treatment facilities, both for psychological issues and for substance use treatment, and at Family Counseling Services, which provides counseling services to those who are at a financial disadvantage. I have also worked at Lubbock Christian University and counselled college students and faculty. It has been a privilege to walk with these individuals through their struggles, to see them grow, and watch them thrive.
Personally, I have been married to my husband, Chris, since 2015. We met at Texas Tech University in the Goin’ Band from Raiderland and got married right after I graduated with my Masters. I am not from Lubbock, but I have come to call it home. I serve as an Officer for the Goin’ Band Association and take pictures of the Goin’ Band during the Texas Tech football games in my spare time. I love to read science fiction and mystery novels, go to comic-cons, play my clarinet for alumni band events, and participate in other outdoor activities. If you want to know anything else, just ask!
My Approach & Values
In a therapy session, my goal is to create a safe, calm, and comfortable space for you to express yourself. Therapy is built on a foundation of trust between me (as your therapist) and you.

- Trauma / PTSD
- Self-Esteem / Confidence Issues

- Domestic Violence / Abuse
- Life Transitions
- Suicidal Ideation
