Counselor: Adults

Kyla believes that each of us is capable of creating the change we want to see in our lives. She feels that a strong, trusting relationship cultivated with her clients through respect, openness, and genuine care welcomes clients to awaken to their inner strengths. Kyla works with adults of sexual, relational, and gender diversity on issues regarding relationships, life transitions, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, and LGBTQIA identity. As a graduate of Dharma Yoga’s 200-hour teacher training, Kyla offers breathwork, mindfulness, meditation, and yoga in session. These techniques can help bring awareness and connection to the physical body as well as cultivate coping skills to decrease stress and anxiety. Kyla sees therapy as a journey and is honored to participate in that journey.
