Kelsee White, LMFT
I grew up in the small town of Gaffney, located in the update of SC. Typical to what you see on TV and in the Movies, my home town is known for state championship football and basketball, good BBQ, and a giant peach water tower on the side of I-85 (Yes, the one featured in House of Cards if you are familiar with the show).
My senior year of high school, I took an Intro to psychology class and was hooked from the start. I went on to attend Newberry College (located in another small town in SC) where I received a BA in Psychology. After college, I moved to the Charlotte area where I attended Pfeiffer University earning a master’s degree in marriage and family therapy (2012).
As a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT), my clinical career has been diverse in that I have practiced in a variety of settings. Most notably, I have a great deal of experience working in collaborative care settings such as outpatient treatment facilities, medical practices, and substance abuse treatment centers. I am also a licensed clinical addictions specialist (LCAS). I practice a respectful and nonjudgmental approach to exploring the unique challenges of those suffering with addiction and the impact it can have on their loved-ones.
All of these roads have led me to Connect Couples Therapy were I welcome the opportunity to partner with couples in their journey to reconnect and experience a more enriching and compassionate life with one another. I meet couples where they are and create a warm and inviting environment to work through difficult conversations and cultivate new and meaningful connections. Therapy can be hard work, but it can be one of the most deeply healing and fulfilling experiences of your life.
Outside of the therapy room, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two daughters. My husband and I love live music, diving into a good TV series, and you can occasionally catch us enjoying a good dance party in the kitchen with our girls, compliments of “Baby Shark” and Taylor Swift’s “Shake It off.”
