About Me

Way to go on seeking support for yourself! You've come to the right place.

As a licensed Independent Social Worker, my passion is to help individuals gain insight and perspective in their life. I don't give advice because it's your life and not for me to tell you how to live it. I believe every person has a right to determine how they want their life to look. I can't fix you...because you're not broken...but I can walk along side you through those difficult times. My approach to therapy is person centered, combining CBT and DBT concepts while considering all bio-psycho-social aspects of your life.

I have experience working with individuals who struggle with a variety of mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, ADHD, and relationship difficulties. Seeking help can be intimidating and talking to a stranger about your most personal thoughts and feelings can be overwhelming. You've got this. Let's work together to build a life worth living!

Kayla has been extremely helpful so far and is great at listening. She's quite amazing really, she's helped me better understand myself and the situations I've been apart of without fail!

Kayla is responsive and very available. She is also very approachable and creates an understanding and compassionate space for our sessions. I would recommend her to anyone seeking counseling without hesitation.

Kayla is the best therapist I have ever had. She had listened to me, helped me make some really tough decisions, and helped me improve my life. It’s rare you see someone with the compassion to help others anymore and it shines in her.

Kayla was very helpful in helping me open up to therapy. I had never experienced therapy in a helpful way before this. I would recommend her to anyone with reservations about therapy, as she is the most non judgmental mental health professional I’ve received services from.

Kayla has been Awesome. Her advice and different perspectives on things really makes you open eyes! She’s not one to judge and she listens most importantly! I highly recommend her to help you!

Kayla is very open and understanding. She listens and is still able to continue even with my side tangents I go into. Wonderful personality and very sweet. Shares her thoughts and ideas when asked about certain topics, i.e. How I could handle a certain issue? Or what i could try to bring myself out of a funk. Basically she's great. Even gets me to laugh on days when a smile is hard to place
