MSW, Registered Clinical Social Worker
Kayla became a social worker because "your life is worth her time.” This is something she lives by as she values each and every client she has had the opportunity to work with. Kayla always feels blessed to join clients on their journey towards healing and wellness, and it takes immense bravery to take that first step and reach out for help. Kayla works hard to create an environment that fosters safety and growth, and approaches her practice from a strengths-based, anti-racist, collaborative lens.
Kayla has also begun the process of becoming trained in Brainspotting and completed Phase One. Kayla is very passionate about this innovative therapy style and looks forward to continuing her education in this area to best serve her clients. Kayla has worked with individuals managing various challenges such as, but not limited to: substance use and addiction, homelessness and poverty, intimate partner violence, ABIs and Dementia, trauma and attachment, self-esteem, emotion regulation, members of the LGBTQIA+ community, depression, anxiety, and more. Kayla has also worked with clients across the life span, from ages 12 to 90. The first step is often the hardest, and she encourages you to reach out for help. Healing is possible.
