Kayla has a specialization in families and children and has spent most of her career providing individual and family therapy in an outpatient mental health clinic and school based setting. She has experience working with individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, adjustment disorders, ADHD, mood disorders, anger management, grief/loss, relationship issues, and self-esteem.
