Hi, I'm Kyla.
Leader, yogi-wannabe, wife, mother, seeker of "why," punny-joke-loving realist, continually learning more, one day at a time. Let's work together to figure this thing out.
Successful therapy has a lot to do with a good personality fit. If you have been to therapy before, you know that the therapist really needs to be someone you feel comfortable talking to. If you haven't been to therapy before, know that it is encouraged to ask questions about the therapist to determine if they are a good match for you.
I know that it is possible to find lasting change through a caring, trustworthy relationship. I believe that at our core, our needs are simple: we need to be seen, heard and to know that we matter. I want to get to know you as a person to determine how we should approach your current concerns. While I may make recommendations and be able to offer insight I won't tell you what to do. You are the expert on your life and I see my role as a supporter that is able to stay objective and curious, when you and/or those closest to you are not able to fill that role.
Using a relational, neuroscience informed approach (studied in consultation with Dr. Louis Cozolino) I utilize several methods of reaching change. I am an EMDRIA-certified EMDR therapist, in addition to utilizing other experiential and cognitive based models including: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy and Attachment Theory.
Private payment and Wellmark/Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance policies accepted. If you plan to use insurance benefits I strongly encourage contacting your insurance customer service number (located on the back of your insurance card) to determine out of pocket costs and mental health benefit coverage prior to your appointment.
Co-payment is due at the time of service.
