A Bit About Me

Kelsey Smith Crowe (she/her) is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Licensed Clinical Addictions Specialist in North Carolina. She holds a Masters Degree of Social Work from The University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, and is a licensed Clinical Supervisor of Clinical Social Worker Associates.


With over ten years of clinical mental health experience, Kelsey has devoted her career to helping people find their way to a happier, healthier life while still remaining true and authentic to themselves. Kelsey's ideal client is age 18 and up, and is navigating challenges related to gender identity and sexuality, "coming out" in adulthood, fertility and perinatal mental health, polyamory/ENM, queer-identified partnerships, diverse relationship dynamics and other significant life transitions. Kelsey additionally has extensive experience with professionals navigating recovery from substance use disorders. Kelsey has over 11 years experience working with individuals identifying as LGBTQIA+, and over 3 years experience working with relationships in a clinical setting.

Kelsey's passion is to see her clients not just survive, but truly flourish and fall in love with their lives. She finds immense fulfillment in guiding her clients as they reconnect with themselves during life's inevitable transitions. Growth can be tough, but Kelsey is right there, offering unwavering support every step of the way.


Kelsey’s clients are often brilliant and motivated seekers looking for clarity and purpose. Over the past decade, she has had the honor of witnessing incredible transformations as her clients achieve their goals. She believes in being genuinely present and human with her clients, creating a space where they feel seen, heard, and understood. Certified in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and skilled in solution-focused approaches, Kelsey is dedicated to providing a safe, welcoming environment where clients can trust that their experiences will be honored (and even celebrated!)


Outside of work, Kelsey loves to travel, create pottery, and spend quality time with her partner, daughter, and their two energetic bernedoodles. She cherishes these moments of joy and relaxation, which keep her grounded and inspired in her work with clients.
