About Me

Hello! Welcome to BetterHelp!

I am so glad you came across my profile. I am so proud of you for taking the first step in taking care of yourself.

My name is Kayla Luu and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Florida. I received my Masters in Social Work from Florida State University in 2016. Since graduating, I have worked with the largest community mental health agency in Central Florida, including the school system in Orange and Seminole County, and a well-known adult day care/respite agency for those with Dementia and Alzheimer providing counseling services to those in need. I have volunteered my counseling services in the past for the recovery efforts of Hurricane Maria and the Pulse tragedy.

Prior to graduate school, I have worked in the mental health field with children, adolescents, and families in a foster-care transitioning home and residential center. This giving me a total of 8 years experiencing in the field of helping others.

I approach counseling with an open heart and mind, and hope to create a warm and welcoming environment for you. I want to enable you to determine the areas you wish to address, and I will tailor the therapeutic approach on your needs and area of focus. I draw on several treatment modalities to allow you to further develop your strengths and to help you meet all of your treatment plan goals at a speed that works best for you. My goals as a therapist are to make you feel safe, validated, and empowered.

Lastly, here are some fun facts about me: I am Vietnamese-American and speak English and Vietnamese fluently. I am a wife and mother of 3 kids. I was raised in Boston, MA and currently living in Cape Coral, Florida. During my free time, I like to spend quality time with family, watching Netflix, and painting.

I look forward to working with you!
