About Me

Aloha,

My name is Kayla and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with over nine years of experience in the counseling field. I have provided counseling services to individuals and their families in many settings including clinical, residential, in-home, agency, and school based. Additionally, I have experience providing crisis counseling, conducting trauma support groups, working with child welfare services, and doing parenting coaching. Helping people feel supported, increase the love and acceptance they feel for themselves, and improve their life is my passion. Being a motivational speaker and workshop presenter as well, I also enjoy helping people find their own life’s passion.

I take an integrative, client centered approach and meet you right where you’re at. My goal is to provide a warm, safe, and accepting space to for you to feel comfortable expressing your true self and exploring your perceptions. You are the expert in your life and what will be most helpful for you. Therefore, the techniques and approach used will be tailored to fit your goals, values, and learning style. I like to remind people that they are doing the best they can with the tools they have. The good news is that we can always learn more tools, continue our healing, and feel even better.

In my free time I enjoy immersing myself in nature by jogging outside, going to the beach, and playing in my garden. I love practicing yoga, being creative, and playing with my ukulele and singing bowls. If you have any questions for me or would like to see if we would be a good fit, don’t hesitate to reach out. One small click just may start a ripple effect of positive change in your life. You are worth it!

Kayla is a wonderful therapist. She supports me in my decisions and helps me to see deeper layers of meaning in the themes of my life. She sees me and gets me, and that’s what it’s all about. I’m so grateful BetterHelp brought Kayla into my life. She’s a blessing.

I had my first call with Kayla. Sincere and supportive was the approach she took and the call also felt like she really wanted to get to know me.

Kayla is the very best, she gets it. Life is gorgeous and beautiful and crazy and sad and it's all worth it but she helps with the insanity of it all. Great counselor who takes time to listen, advise, and encourage in the way that builds you the best.

Working with Kayla has been nothing but a gift to me these past few months. She is very professional, caring and insightful during our sessions and offers a lot of meaningful resources that allow me to do further self-exploration and healing on my own outside of our sessions. The quality of my life has been so much better after working with her. Thank you Kayla

There’s something about kayla’s voice and how she says things that captures your brain instantaneously. Thank you Kayla for showing me things I never think of and opening my eyes to a different view/ perspective.

I feel so lucky to have found Kayla. She is an amazingly empathetic counselor who also has real suggestions to get you out of your comfort zone. I am constantly impressed with how much she can process and how deeply she listens. She also works harder than any counselor I've ever experienced. I send her updates from time to time and writes back an enormous amount back of positive feedback...keeping me on track between sessions.

I'm so glad I have Kayla Harvey to turn to when my mind is not at ease or I just need someone to talk with about issues I'm pondering. She has been a great support and has been there right when I needed her. Thanks again you make a difference.

Kayla has allowed me to look at the deepest parts of me that I’ve struggled with since childhood. She helps me see things from a different perspective and learn from new experiences. I don’t know where I’d be without her.

Kayla is the best. With how crazy the world has been and everything going on in my life at the same time I was in a pretty dark place. Kayla helped me improve my state of mind, communication skills and emotional awareness. My marriage benefitted greatly and everything I learned will stay with me forever.
