Meet Our Counselors
Kelli Busbee | Ed.D., LPC, LMFT, NCC
I am a National Certified Counselor, Licensed Professional Counselor, and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Slidell, Louisiana. I have my Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy, Doctor of Education in Educational Leadership, and Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction, with a concentration in gifted education.
I was raised in ‘Da Parish’ (Meraux, Louisiana), but moved my family to Slidell in 2002. I have been happily married for over 20 years, and I am a mom to two beautiful children. Since 1998, I have spent my professional life as a teacher and administrator at several schools throughout St. Tammany and St. Bernard parish. I recently retired from the education field, after 23 years of service. I opened my own practice in 2018, where Family Ties Counseling was born.
I am excited to offer my services to the community that my family and I call home. I specialize in marriage counseling, family counseling, individual adult counseling, and individual adolescent counseling (high school and higher). I aim to provide high-quality counseling and care to those in need of such services.
Jennifer Larmann | M.A, LPC
I earned my BA as well as my Masters in Community Counseling from LSU. Geaux Tigers!!! I am also a Licensed Professional Counselor.
As a child, I grew up in a military household and moved a lot. Now, I’m happy to call Slidell home, along with my husband, two children, and our dog. I have worked as a mental health counselor as well as a school counselor for over 20 years. For the past 13 years, I’ve worked as a junior high school counselor. While the teenage years can be some of the most difficult, I can’t imagine working with any other age group.
I see counseling as a safe place where you can express your thoughts, feelings, and experiences in a safe and nurturing environment without having to worry about being judged. I enjoy listening to my clients and helping them work towards a goal through therapy. I particularly love working with adolescents but am open to clients of all ages.
