Kaylee designs therapy sessions to meet each client’s unique needs, interests and goals. Depending on the client, she couples her wellness‐based, bio‐ psycho‐social and person‐centered approach with specific evidenced based practices, such as: Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing and Relaxation Skills Training. In conjunction with traditional talk therapy, Kaylee may also integrate more holistic, complementary approaches into sessions, such as meditative breath‐work, yoga therapy and other mind‐body techniques. Kaylee works with individuals one on one, and leads groups.
Kaylee works with adults dealing with a variety of struggles, such as anxiety, stress, depression, transitions (i.e. wedding, pregnancy, school, career etc.), relationship problems, dating problems, creative blocks, adult ADD/ADHD, chronic illness, and sexuality‐related issues. With a collaborative and therapeutic partnership, she helps clients feel more empowered and equipped to face life’s ever‐evolving challenges. Her goal is to help clients not just learn how to cope with life’s many difficulties, but also to develop a greater sense of health, wellness and overall joy in life.
