Professional Endorsements:

“I have had the honor to training Kayla in the Havening Techniques as she completed her certification in this powerful trauma-informed modality. Kayla brings an incredible intuition of how to navigate to impact of developmental and attachment trauma on the developing sense of self. I have been consistently excited about how she brings together her wealth of knowledge to truly create client-centered care. Her additional training in somatic modalities as well as art support her patients in delving into more complicated aspects of the trauma which she then integrates Havening for true neural network depotentiation. The combination leads to long lasting healing. Her warmth, compassion, and empathy is the final touch for true attachment work to be successful.
Kayla is a gift to the world of healing.”

“She was an exceptional therapist and a pleasure to work with, bringing her talent and grief counseling skills to every patient and project assigned to her. Her art therapy skills, creativity, and people skills are excellent and she has some very innovative ideas. We received many positive comments and accolades from families of terminally ill patients that she worked with during her tenure.

“…I am impressed with Kayla’s clinical skills, team-work, and professionalism, and give her my highest recommendation.

Kayla provided direct patient services to our patient population. The Polytrauma Center is one of four centers in the nation that provides care to soldiers who have been injured in Iraq or Afghanistan. Given the medical and psychosocial complexities of these patients, it was particularly impressive that Kayla was able to engage individuals and family members in therapy and provide guidance during the recovery process.

Many patients provided feedback that Kayla’s sessions were the most enjoyable and assisted them in finding hope and gaining a positive outlook. Clinically, Kayla is viewed as the subject matter expert in art therapy and was asked to give a Grand Rounds Presentation for Polytrauma programs across the country …which was well attended and received.”
