I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Wisconsin with 10 years of experience in the field and 5 years experience as a therapist. I have worked with a wide range of clientele from young children to older adults with a wide range of concerns including ADHD, domestic violence, emotional/physical/sexual traumas. depression, stress and anxiety, and family discord. I also have experience in working with military Veterans and Veterans families.
My counseling style is strengths-based, open, warm, and client centered. I believe in walking side-by-side with my clients vs leading them; you know how you learn and grow best and I'm here to help provide guidance towards your goals. Everyone deserves to be treated with fairness, equity, compassion, and care. My therapeutic approach combines cognitive-behavioral, problem-solving, humanistic, motivation enhancement, and psychodynamic. We will work together to create a treatment plan that works for you as an individual.
The brain is the most powerful muscle in the body and our mental wellness is just as important as our physical. If you are ready to take the first step towards change I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you soon!

Kayla has been very good at listening, validating my feelings and offering me suggestions.
Kayla has been really helpful for me. She is positive and reassuring and makes sure we cover all of the issues important to me. It helps so much to have an objective opinion.
Kayla is insightful and compassionate. It’s very easy to talk to her and I always feel better after our sessions. I feel comfortable confiding in her. I highly recommend her as a therapist.
