Cornerstone Christian Counseling in Kalamazoo, Michigan

Laura Kellicut, MA, LPC

Laura Kellicut, MA, LPCCounseling is a personal and involved process, which is both educational and developmental. My approach is person-centered, believing that God has given each client and/or family the ability to change and grow toward a healthy and whole life. Our God is one who restores us from our brokenness. I view my role as a counselor to be an avenue through which God’s healing may come. I see all people as God’s beloved creation and therefore worthy of acceptance, compassion, and support. I view myself as this support, and try to foster a counseling environment that feels safe in order to encourage engagement in the counseling process, and ultimately growth and restoration within the client.I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and National Certified Counselor. I received my bachelor’s degree in Counseling/Psychology and Biblical Theology from Great Lakes Christian College in 2006. I completed my master’s degree in 2009 from East Tennessee State University, with a concentration in Marriage and Family Therapy. I am currently working on my Doctorate in Counselor Education through Western Michigan University, with a specialty in children and families.

I have over 7 years of experience working with children, adolescents, and families. I have worked as a case manager, counselor in an agency, and contracted counselor into elementary schools. I have significant experience working with clients of diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds, as well as low-socioeconomic families.
