Dr. Laurence Kelly Jr, PSY.D
A message from Dr. Larry: "You've made it this far, and for that, I hope you feel proud. Nothing is scarier than asking for help, we're brought up hearing, "You should be able to fix this yourself." And, that idea is completely incorrect. You are a human being, complex, unique, and hurting. Maybe you have a child who is struggling, maybe you're sad, or maybe you can't stop worrying. And guess what? All of that is normal. You are normal, and good, and you're trying your best. Life is hard, and for those who are ready for help, I'm here." Education and Experience: Dr. Laurence "Larry" M. Kelly Jr. graduated from the Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology in 2010, with a Doctorate of Psychology (PsyD). Dr. Kelly has earned a doctorate, two master's degrees, and a bachelor's degree, all in the fields of psychology. He has amassed experience working with children, adolescents, and adults by working at community mental health clinics, inpatient psychiatric hospitals, and college counseling centers. Dr. Kelly became licensed with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in 2011.

I wish I could have added more stars! Dr. Kelly is the kindest, gentlest and most thoughtful psychiatrist for teenagers and young adults. Since my son has started seeing Dr.Kelly, he's like a different person. My son would go and see him every day if it were possible. The trust level between my son and Dr. Kelly is amazing. My son keeps a small notebook to write things done so he doesn't forget anything he wants to tell Dr. Kelly.
