Meet Kellee Watkins, LCSW
I am Kellee, the owner of Wisdom for the Journey, LLC and, a licensed clinical social worker with over 10 years of direct practice experience. I am therapist, life coach, and Counselor Education and Supervision PhD candidate committed to helping others reach their full potential. I love traveling, Marvel movies, DC Comics animation, and chocolate. I am an avid reader and if you see me driving don’t be alarmed…that’s just my version of Carpool Karaoke, LOL!
1. Authenticity (True Self, Identity, Freedom, Fearlessness)
2. Enoughness (Acceptance, Balance, Fulfillment)
3. Interdependence (Connection, Community, Gratefulness)
4. Meaning (Intention, Purpose, Dreams)
5. Self-Compassion (Grace, Forgiveness, Growth, Love)
6. Expectancy (Hope, Faith)
I earned a bachelor’s degree in Speech Communication from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a master degree in Social Work from Washington University in St. Louis. In trying to find my perfect career, I also completed graduate programs in Human Resources & Industrial Relations and Health Communications. I recently took several classes in theology to further my understanding of spiritual growth and how it impacts identity and culture. I am a Certified Compassion Fatigue Professional and Integrative Wellness coach because I want to help professional caregivers have healthy and long-lasting careers. Teaching others how to achieve wholeness and balance between their personal and professional life is my ultimate goal.
The challenges I faced during my journey shaped my guideposts for life, together we will discover yours. Wisdom for the Journey, LLC helps you engage your heart and develop long-term strategies for overcoming life’s challenges. The Services page outlines my approach to therapy, but I want you to know that I am interested in learning about the whole person and helping you create balance in every area of life (Mentally, Emotionally, Physically and Spiritually).
1. God is for all of us,
2. He always works on our behalf and longs to fulfill the desires of our heart,
3. We are resourceful and resilient beings,
4. We are created to live abundantly.
