All Kinds of News for July 11, 2018
For more than 10 years, Greenbrier Academy for Girls has been investing in the professional development and training of residential, academic and clinical staff. This results in leading edge therapy and the most up-to-date best practices. For example, this summer, Kelly Sills, one of Greenbrier Academy’s valued therapists, is co-authoring an article on incorporating neuroscience concepts into counseling. The article will be published in Counseling Today’s June 2018 issue. Kelly will be working alongside a former professor and Program Director of Marshall's counseling program, as well as two other former program members.
Kelly Sills received her MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Marshall University. She has years of experience supporting families in private educational settings, and co-founded a nonprofit educational program before her employment at GBA. Kelly is passionate about integrating western psychotherapy with ancient practices of meditation and yoga, which are supported by neuroscience research. Her professional experience has shown this philosophy to be supportive of Greenbrier Academy for Girl's model of Strong Relationality.
Whether working with students who are struggling with a range of symptoms from depression and anxiety, to trauma recovery and chronic pain syndromes, Kelly specializes in integrative healing of both intrapersonal and interpersonal parts of the self.
Located in Pence Springs, WV, Greenbrier Academy is thrilled to have such a dedicated staff member contributing to the field beyond her role as therapist and counselor at GBA. The clinical and academic team at Greenbrier Academy congratulates Kelly on this accomplishment.
