About

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.
I have over 8 years experience in the mental health field, with a background in trauma awareness psychotherapy including Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to support clients in understanding and regulating thoughts, emotions and behaviors.
I hope to support your growth as you develop self-compassion and self-awareness of how experiences can affect your overall well-being. By doing so you can begin to allow yourself a space for healing your thoughts, your body and your relationship with the world around you. I look forward to supporting you on your journey.
