About Kylie

My passion for counseling started when I sought therapy during high school due to being cyber bullied. In therapy, I was able to process through what I was experiencing, receive validation for what I was feeling, and learn how to overcome my unhelpful thoughts and feelings. It was in sessions with my counselor that I realized being a therapist was my calling in life; I wanted to help people experience the freedom and healing that she helped me achieve. 

 

My experiences at a university psychology clinic and an IOP/PHP facility have led me to develop a passion for working with children, adolescents, and young adults. I love working with this age range, as the focus of treatment is often on self-exploration and growing into the best version of ourselves. Through the therapeutic relationship, my goal is to help you feel empowered. I strive to do this by providing a space where you feel heard, understood, and validated, while also challenging and encouraging you. I believe change begins by challenging unhealthy thinking patterns and behaviors, grows into learning to accept ourselves for who we truly are, and results in a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle.

 

I specialize in seeing clients with a variety of presenting problems such as depression, anxiety, self-esteem, stress, self-harm, and career related issues. I take a client-centered approach and incorporate my training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I also like to incorporate expressive arts when it becomes too difficult to find the words to express how we feel.

 

I have a four-legged sidekick named Stella who helps provide comfort when talking about our thoughts and feelings. She is an 11lb, hypoallergenic, therapy dog, and is also an AKC registered Community Canine Good Citizen. Stella loves to meet new people and snuggle any chance she gets!
