Hi, my name is Kayla and my hope is to continue to support individuals in navigating the effects of daily stress and anxiety to more complex issues of depression and post traumatic stress disorder. Whether it's learning to understand our own mental health or just gain a better understanding of our own thoughts and feelings, I believe that each of us hold the ability to heal, and in doing so, find what helps us thrive. My approach to each session is to provide a safe space for clients to be at ease in the present and gain clarity while exploring, challenging and healing core wounds, values and behaviors.

Therapy is a high individualized process: it can be about bringing awareness to challenges you're experiencing and giving you the skills and insight you need to change how you interact with them and it can also be about reprocessing distressing events so as to be able to move past them. Therapy can be beneficial for those experiencing anxiety, depression, stress, behavioral disturbances, trauma-related distress, panic attacks, and/or relationship difficulties. In therapy we can work collaboratively to uncover, identify, and adapt patterns to reduce these struggles.

What I bring to the relationship is warmth, caring, and a gentle and compassionate presence. I have a deep faith in your ability to transform your life, empowering you to discover what works and change what doesn't, helping you find your own truth and path. My approach is gentle, yet potent. Using EMDR (www.emdr.com) and EFT (www.emofree.com) as highly effective tools, I help you to release negative patterns and beliefs and build upon your positive resources and strengths.
