Meet Kelly Meany, a compassionate and dedicated licensed clinical social worker, licensed drug and alcohol counselor, and life coach located in Darien, Connecticut. Kelly has had a lifelong passion for helping individuals who are struggling or unhappy and seeking change in their lives. From a young age, she has possessed intuitive and empathetic qualities, and as she pursued her education, she realized that her strengths and gifts could be best utilized in a clinical setting to assist others.

Kelly firmly believes that everyone has a story to tell, and sharing that story can be the crucial first step in the healing process.

For the past decade, Kelly has been dedicated to helping those struggling with addiction and past traumas. She recognizes that finding inner strength is a process that involves navigating through numerous layers and obstacles from the past, present, and fears about the future. In her commitment to helping others, Kelly continues to expand her knowledge and skills while assisting individuals in breaking through these layers, learning effective coping techniques, and setting achievable goals to foster lasting personal success.

Throughout her career, Kelly has witnessed and guided people as they changed their paths from undesired life experiences to ones of true healing and personal success.
