Keeley was inspired to work in mental health after receiving her BA in psychology from Mercy College in New York City, and she moved to California for the various psychological services Los Angeles can provide. Keeley continued her education, earning her MSW from the University of Southern California in 2018, with a concentration in adults who live with persistent mental illness. Keeley was drawn to social work for its diversity and strengths-based focus on the client. Her graduate internships included college counseling with students in crisis, as well as community mental health with the L.A. county DMH, where she carried out individual therapy with low-income adults, children, and families impacted by substance abuse and domestic violence.
Keeley has been an integral member of various treatment teams at the residential level of care for individuals struggling with self-harm, trauma, and suicidality. Before joining LAT in the spring of 2021, she was a program therapist at a comprehensive DBT center for highly vulnerable women. Keeley’s time as an associate clinical social worker has helped her acquire understanding and sensitivity for the specific needs of unique clients. She is passionate about continuing her clinical work at LAT.
