She provides individual therapy services to children, teens, transitional age youth, and adults struggling with a variety of difficulties such as emotion regulation, trauma, interpersonal relationships, self-esteem, anxiety, identity, and life transitions.
Kayla is a down-to-earth and relatable therapist who makes her clients feel comfortable and welcome in her judgement-free zone. She understands the importance of a strong therapeutic alliance and places emphasis on creating a safe, open, and non-judgemental space for the clients that she works with.

Her approach is integrative to help meet each person’s unique needs and she draws from a number of approaches including Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), as well as experiential and attachment-based approaches. Kayla will often incorporate art therapy, somatic practices, and mindfulness exercises into sessions as well.
