Kyla works in our San Jose location. At this time, Kyla is not accepting new clients.

I respect the courage and vulnerability it takes to reach out for support. I am honored to be a part of your journey and consider it a privilege to hold space for your meaningful change. My focus is to create a safe, friendly and supportive environment where you are empowered to heal, grow and find a more balanced self.

I work with teens, adults, couples and families through issues including anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, relationships, stress, parenting, and life transitions. I am dedicated to my clients and aim to offer a culturally sensitive and respectful therapeutic experience.

As a therapist, my approach is warm, compassionate and non-judgmental. I use evidence-based, integrative and holistic interventions that are tailored to align with each client’s unique needs. Our sessions are collaborative and often include a bio-psycho-social approach where we can explore overall health and wellbeing; including physical connections to emotional problems.

My background includes supporting adults with dual diagnoses in a residential setting, counseling elementary and middle school students in general and special education, as well as offering trauma and crisis support to students and staff at various local Bay Area schools during times of critical need. Currently, I am focusing my time in private practice, where I have been supporting clients for 10 years.

I hold a California Marriage and Family Therapist License with the Board of Behavioral Sciences. I earned my MA in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy from John F. Kennedy University and my BA in Psychology from San Francisco State University.

In addition to providing therapy, I also serve as the essential oil educator at Nugent where I offer education on how to utilize therapeutic grade essential oils to improve your health in a natural way. I am passionate about plant medicine and natural wellness; and love to help people find safe and effective solutions to physical and emotional needs.

While I am not currently accepting clients, please feel free to email me at [email protected] and provide your name, phone number, and a brief summary of your question or concern. My typical response time is within 24 hours.
