About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker licensed in the state of Wyoming and in the process of becoming licensed in Ohio as well. I have nearly 8 years of experience providing therapy in a community mental health setting. I have experience treating clients across the age spectrum from young children to the elderly. I also have a wide range of experience treating multiple diagnoses and presenting problems. I have experience in treating PTSD, Generalized Anxiety, Depression, OCD, ADHD, Bipolar, Personalty Disorders, and much more. I have experience in providing substance abuse treatment, individual therapy, couples therapy, family therapy, group therapy, and play therapy. I am trained in EMDR and have specific training in providing EMDR via tele-health. I have extensive experience in trauma treatment and have a passion for this particular area of therapy.

My therapy style is warm and inviting. I’m a firm believer in using a client centered and eclectic approach during the therapeutic process. Each person, situation, and presenting problem is unique so therefore I believe in providing tailor made therapeutic interventions specifically designed for each client. As a therapist I always treat each client with unconditional positive regard and acceptance.

It takes bravery and courage to be vulnerable in sharing our stories with a therapist. There is tremendous strength in being vulnerable. If you are ready to take that step and move forward with your own healing journey I am here to support you.

I look forward to working with you!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Kayla Sterling . We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Kayla is an amazing therapist. She is warm, kind, patient, and understanding. I highly recommend her.
She has helped me with a lot such as ptsd, trauma, abusive relationships, depression, anxiety, fear of abandonment. I have learned a lot from her and I cannot thank her enough for all that she’s done. She’s able to understand what I’m trying to ask in a question even when I have a hard time phrasing it.

Thank you, Kayla, for everything!
