Congratulations on taking the first step toward emotional healing and reclaiming your inner power. There is a misconception that something is wrong with us if we need therapy. But the truth is that humans need other humans; we thrive in community and support. Therapy is a place to find support, to go inward and connect with yourself. My framework of practice is eclectic, using CBT, trauma-focused and culturally sensitive interventions, mindfulness and a systems approach—together we can find a more hopeful future & start living more fully in the present moment as you regain agency in your life.

Hello! I’m Kaylee, and I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist. I love working with teens, young adults, and couples. My journey to becoming a therapist began unfolding organically from my previous roles as a high school ministry leader and a personal trainer. I believe that health and healing comes from exploring and integrating all aspects of yourself. We are physical, spiritual, emotional, psychological and relational beings and I believe it is crucial to be seen and understood as a whole person. My desire is to create a grace-filled environment for you to navigate life changes, new relationships, conflict, and healing.

Childhood is the single most important predictor of well being in human development. Many of us have buried painful memories into our subconscious. By approaching the issues holistically, we will help you live the life you deserve and want. Wellness, in its literal definition means a healthy balance of the mind, body and spirit. My role as a therapist is to guide you toward finding that balance and connection to self. We will explore how your thoughts, emotions, body, childhood experiences, relationships, and current environment are contributing to your distress and healing.

Together we will explore CBT, mindfulness, trauma focused and experiential therapies in order to encourage the self confidence and energy necessary to manage life's predicaments.
We live in a complicated world! Maybe you are seeking tools to manage a temporary challenge...or perhaps are coping with issues that have persisted for some time. No matter the obstacle, we all have the capability to problem solve. However many of us feel unprepared, alone and overwhelmed when facing emotional burdens. That's where it really helps to have a professional available to guide and support us.

Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, LMFT
I am an integrative therapist, tailoring approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, Trauma Focused Therapy, and others to fit each client's need.
I am dedicated to helping clients gain more insight, balance, and happiness in their lives. Together we can uncover underlying reasons for symptomatic behaviors and emotions and address those to learn healthier, more productive and beneficial ways to deal with challenging situations. As a transpersonal therapist, my goal is to help clients gain greater self-knowledge and richer inner lives. Identifying areas of concern and learning ways to heal and triumph adversity can be challenging; however, I believe that together we can produce meaning from them and become resilient.
