Kyla Duhart LCSW, Cedar Ridge Counseling

What Clients can expect from me

I like to create an atmosphere where patients feel safe and know that their information, and what is discussed during sessions is completely confidential unless there is an attempt to harm oneself or others. I specialize in medication management but my goal is to assist patients with their mental health holistically using therapy first and then advance to medication management if there is a need. The most important thing for me is to listen so we as a team can ensure your success. I specialize in adolescents and adults that are dealing with anxiety, depression, ADHD, Schizophrenia, Bipolar Disorder and Personality Disorders but able to treat all disorders.

Statement of Counseling Philosophy

Mental health treatment starts with a team approach that includes the patient and treating the patient as a whole. Paying attention to detail is important and ensuring the patient I am here for them. Your needs are the most important in treatment but treatment
