Amy Kelly is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist specializing in Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy. She graduated from UC Davis with a BA in Psychology, SF State with an MFT in Clinical Psychology and completed CE with the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Amy has been a school counselor for several years, most recently supporting the San Francisco Day School and Fusion Academy Marin. We are excited to have her join our team in Walnut Creek this year! Amy has also worked in private practice at the San Francisco Counseling Center and at Haight Ashbury Psychological Services where she also served as a board member.
Amy started her career as a teen counselor at St. Vincent de Paul Society in Melbourne, Australia. She later worked as a child and teen counselor at College Track, in San Francisco, where she helped at risk youth succeed within the public education system. While completing her master’s degree, she worked as an intern at HeadStart in San Francisco where she served as a child therapist for preschoolers who live below the poverty line. The common thread throughout Amy’s career is her passion to help children of all ages find inner strength and succeed.
