A little bit about Kelly . . .


Dr. Kelly Neland

"The mind and body are connected.

Not caring for one causes the other to suffer."

Kelly is dual certified as a Family Nurse Practitioner and Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. She has completed graduate and post-graduate study in individual and family therapies, psychopharmacology, and psychological assessment and
evaluation. She is licensed in Missouri and Kansas as an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse with diagnostic, treatment, and prescriptive authority. She completed her Bachelor of Arts in Political-Legal Studies at William Woods University,
her Bachelor of Science in Nursing at Graceland University, her Master of Science in Nursing at University of Missouri-Kansas City, her Post-Master’s Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner at University of Cincinnati, and her Doctor of Nursing
Practice at Fort Hays State University.


Kelly offers professional services to individuals, couples, and families experiencing emotional and behavioral problems, anxiety, difficulty adjusting to life circumstances, medical problems or diagnoses, traumatic experiences, a divorce, substance abuse,
and issues involving death and dying.


Kelly believes in two important fundamental concepts. The first, the therapeutic relationship is essential and collaboration between the patient and the mental health provider produces the best clinical outcomes; and the second, the mind and body are
connected. Not caring for one causes the other to suffer.
