Licensed Professional Counselor, PhD, LPC
 therapist: Kelly Baez,
Online in Florida, Georgia
Hi, my name is Kelly, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified First Responder Counselor, and have advanced training in EMDR. I help veterans, first responders, and others process stressors and trauma more efficiently using EMDR. I offer both group and individual Intensives for those wanting to work through traumatic experiences in a short amount of time so they can move forward with their lives more quickly. That said, Intensives are not for everyone, so I offer EMDR sessions in the traditional weekly/biweekly approach as well. Don't feel like EMDR is a good fit? No worries, I have over 17 years of experience providing "talk therapy" so if you'd prefer, we can always talk it out. To get the ball rolling and ensure that working together is a good fit, I offer a free 15-minute consultation - I look forward to hearing from you!

  • Average Session Fee $130
  • Out of Network
  • I am currently a private-pay, out-of-network provider. While I don't accept insurance directly, your insurance plan may have out-of-network benefits, which means that they will reimburse you for a portion of our session cost. I have partnered with Thrizer to handle the out-of-network process automatically for you. With Thrizer, you will only have to pay your co-insurance for our sessions, instead of paying my full fee and waiting for reimbursements. This can save you on average 70% upfront on our sessions. During our intake process, I can help you verify if you have out-of-network benefits and how much your co-insurance would be.
