I help people struggling with stress, anxiety, and overwhelm learn the skills they need to feel more calm and present and improve their relationships with their spouses and children. I particularly enjoy working with parents and I have experience treating individuals and couples around family conflict, parenting issues, divorce, grief and loss, or other major life changes. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, my approach differs from other counselors in that treatment is family and relationship based. This means that even when working with individuals, I strive to understand people in the context of their relationships with their parents, children, spouses, or other important people in their lives. I focus on helping people improve their relationships and parenting skills, and guide them through analyzing and understanding how their relationship patterns may affect their lives. I use a Solution-Focused approach which helps clients identify and achieve attainable goals and builds on strengths they already have. While I use evidence-based practices, I tailor them to meet the needs of my clients and spend a lot of time getting to know and understand my clients. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Oregon and Washington and have been practicing for six years in a variety of settings, including private practice, agencies, and schools.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my four year old son, going on adventures hiking and backpacking in the Pacific Northwest, or knitting and reading at home.

After multiple traumatic experiences regarding the western healthcare community, I was really frightened to give it another try. Working with Kayleigh, I feel safe to express myself without judgement, and I am so grateful to have connected with her. Words cannot express the gentle strength of this woman's mighty heart and sound mind.
She makes me feel safe and comfortable. I can ask "stupid" questions without worrying that she'll judge me.
Fantastic advice so far.
