I am licensed professional clinical counselor in North Dakota with 11 years of professional work experience, mostly with addictions. I have experience in helping clients with coping with addictions & trauma and abuse. I mostly utilize cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy, but also am trained in EMDR to process trauma. I am passionate about working with people and enjoy the opportunities I have experienced as a result of working in this field. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process.
Additional areas of focus: Post-traumatic Stress

Kayla has been great to work with so far. Her approach is down to earth, relatable, and knowledgeable. She makes therapy models very digestible and easy to understand. As former mental health professional myself it’s nice that there is no assumption that I already know something or don’t need help with it- instead she rolls up her sleeves and we dig in, have intellectual discourse about it, and she helps me do the work. Her feedback is honest, non leading, and supportive. I definitely recommend her for anyone who has been through a few therapists and really just wants to get right into it without a lot of the usual fluff!

Kayla is an amazing therapist. I’ve had bad experiences in the past with therapy, and she has completely changed my perspective. She’s very easy to talk to and gives very good advice
