About Kelly Grosklags, LICSW, BCD, Fellow, American Academy of Grief Counseling

For nearly 25 years Kelly Grosklags dedicated her practice to minimizing suffering through her work in oncology, palliative care, and hospice. An experienced therapist and gifted speaker, Kelly created Conversations with Kelly as a public healing forum to broaden her reach as a psychotherapist, social worker and healer for patients and families.

Kelly frequently speaks about end-of-life care, and grief and loss issues at hospitals, clinical conferences, churches, funeral homes, and schools. Her passionate and supportive demeanor helps patients, caregivers, and health professionals connect with the wisdom of dying a good death, making life more meaningful, coping with depression and anxiety, transforming fear into hope and healing versus curing.

Kelly is a Board Certified Diplomat in clinical social work and earned a fellowship in grief counseling from the American Academy of Health Care Professionals. She earned a Master’s Degree in clinical social work from the University of St. Thomas/University of St. Catherine. Kelly has recently transitioned her practice to allow more time for her speaking and educational opportunities.

Kelly is the author of A Comforted Heart, a book of stories from cancer survivors and their caregivers.
