Getting to Know Kayla
Kayla traveled from east of The Mississippi to attend graduate school and plant roots in the great state of Texas. She earned a Master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling from the University of North Texas (UNT) and is happy to call Dallas her new home. She has utilized the healing power of counseling throughout her personal life and is honored to be in a position to pay it forward.
Style and Approach
Kayla specializes in trauma, stress management, and LGBTQIA+ populations and has experience working with clients of all ages. She uses a holistic and sensorimotor approach to counseling meaning she incorporates movement, posture, breathing techniques, and relationship with one’s body in the counseling session. She also includes other types of therapy to supplement talk therapy including art, music, sand tray, and walk therapy.
Kayla believes every person deserves to feel worthy. She strives to create a safe space of acceptance, understanding, and kindness where clients can openly process their experiences and develop self-awareness and self-efficacy. She is an active participant in her clients’ treatment and is committed to working as hard as they are.
In her spare time, she can be found hanging out with her dogs, practicing yoga, and cheering on The Spurs (Go Spurs Go!).
