Mary Kelleher


Dr. Mary Kelleher, Chicago Center for Family Health affiliate member, is a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist and certified Medical Family Therapist. Her office is in Seattle, Washington and she treats individuals and couples living in the State of Illinois via Internet-based eTherapy. This is especially helpful for highly scheduled professionals, couples in long-distance relationships, those who are frequently traveling, and individuals who are house-bound.

She uses integrated therapy that draws from best therapeutic practices, current research, and the specific needs of her clients. She specializes in relationship issues, from preparing yourself to bring your best to a relationship, to premarital, marital, and post-divorce therapy. For couples on the brink of breaking up, she is trained in Discernment Counseling, a new technique for working with couples who are on the brink of divorce and trying to come to a decision about their next step.

She has specialized training and experience in working with individuals and their families facing the special challenges of chronic illness. This ranges from the daily grind of living with a manageable chronic illness, to assistance in dealing with catastrophic medical issues in yourself or in your family.

She has extensive experience working with people of different cultures, ethnicities, religious beliefs, and sexual orientations.

She is a Clinical Member of the American Association for Marriage & Family Therapy, and a member of The Doherty Relationship Institute, the Collaborative Family Healthcare Association, and the National Registry of Marriage Friendly Therapists.

She has a family that includes a toddler grandson, so she smiles a lot. She finds joy in family, friends, music, dancing, yoga and really good food.
