I am a holistic provider and believe that skill and will can get us through any problem we face in life. Sometimes, we grow up not necessarily gaining useful tools to part the way to clarity, and for that reason, we may reach out to others for more support. I am here to guide you through those trying times. With a Master's of Education and a professional license in Counseling, I have worked with individuals learning to get through a wide range of concerns, from bouts of anxiety, to depression, grief, work/life issues, relationship issues and sexual trauma. I've worked with students in the school setting, also with children and their families. In addition, I have experience in areas of foster care and adoption.
I will not only guide you through the issues you may be facing, but will also do my best to provide psychoeducation so that you will gain a deeper understanding of how to navigate in the future independently. I will at times, provide an exercise or something to think about and answer for our next session. The work we will engage in will always serve a purpose and keeping an open mind is essential. Every problem isn't always a nail and sometimes a hammer will not fix every problem. I look forward to empowering you with the effective skills to use while on your journey to feeling your best!

LPC #2015000707 (Expires: 2021-06-30)
Kira worked very well with me. She took all the time needed to hear my situation and broke it down very affectively for me. She offered un biased opinion and gave me many questions that provided we with great insight. I really appreciated her efforts and felt validated the whole time
feel very comfortable with her
I’m grateful for BetterHelp and the great service they are providing. Thank you so much
I've only been working with Kira for a short period of time. We've had two live sessions thus far. Kira is extremely patient and warm. I feel more comfortable than I thought I would opening up to her. I am so grateful that I was matched up with Kira as my first Betterhelp counsellor because sometimes the act of finding the right counsellor can be very daunting. The best word I can use to describe Kira is 'genuine.' It feels like she is truly dedicated and invested in providing me with the best help and care that she can. It's very evident in the way she listens and speaks.
From the very first time we corresponded, Kira gave me a sense of reassurance and acceptance. It was my first time seeking out help from a therapist and I was very nervous. But she immediately melted all my worries away. I couldn't help myself but to pour my heart out to her. She was able to point out or highlight things that I couldn't recognize and helped me understand why I might be going through the emotions that I was having trouble with and what I could do to feel better. I wish everyone could have someone like Kira in their lives. She is a wonderful therapist.
Really love Kiras advice, its clear she speaks from experience and i find hope and a pathway to deal with it in my mind
Kira has really supported me by listening attentively and responding with compassion and understanding.
I had a short chance having counseling with her but she was a great help with my sleep disorder and helping me to have a routine. I will always be thankful to her. She's an understanding listener.
