About Me

Hi!
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Texas. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree from The University of North Texas in psychology and a Master of Arts in Counseling from Dallas Baptist University. I have an immense amount of experience working with individuals from all walks of life. I am experienced in therapeutic work with anxiety, depression, stress, self-injurious behaviors, trauma, psychosis, substance abuse, familial conflict, and grief.

Using a conversational style, I encourage the processing of negative thinking patterns, problem-solving, and real-life interventions for you to experience change. I have adopted an approach to therapy that encompasses CBT and DBT.

Therapy is hard, all of us here at BetterHelp understand that. You may feel worse before you start to feel better. THAT IS NORMAL! You’re kicking up emotions that you’ve worked hard to avoid for a long time. They will not be comfortable, and they will leave you with the urge to run to what you know. Know that the intensity of these emotions is TEMPORARY and the more you process through them the more manageable they will become.

Don't let the fear of change keep you from doing something positive for yourself. I do greatly look forward to working with you!

My current availability for video sessions:
Monday - Friday - Various 30 or 45 minute slots available
Saturdays - Unavailable
Sundays - Unavailable

For chat and phone sessions - there will be more flexibility regarding availability. I will do the best to work with your requests.
I try to schedule standing weekly appointments with each client to provide consistency!
Some days responses to messages will be quicker than other. Please allow 4-24 hours for a response. On weekends, response times will vary.

Written by J.O. on Sep 14, 2021 after counseling with Kynan for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, self esteem, and anger management

After 2 sessions, without a doubt in my mind, I can honestly say Kynan is one of the most understanding and compassionate person I've ever had the pleasure of talking to. I came here to receive help, and eager to make a change in my life. She met me at the door with the same energy. I couldn't have asked for more.

Kynan is amazing! She is so understanding and her words are so kind. I feel safe when I’m talking to her and that is so important for me.

Having Kynan as my therapist has helped me realize more about myself and where my problems were coming from. I have always been a little hesitant about speaking to a therapist, but my doubts were subsided in meeting with her.

Kynan has been absolutely wonderful and helpful. I was nervous about Counceling through an app but I have confidence that there are people out there like Kynan that care about your well being. I will refer everyone to her!
