Kayla graduated with her Masters in Biblical Counseling at Dallas Theological Seminary as well as earned a B.S. in Psychology from Texas A&M University. Kayla is passionate about working with children and families in providing Play Therapy.
Before working as an LPC Intern, Kayla provided play therapy as a Practicum Student to children and adolescents at a local domestic violence agency Hopes Door New Beginnings Center, as well as the private practice HOPE Child & Family Center of Texas. Here Kayla was able to offer therapeutic services to families and children experiencing trauma, grief, anxiety, sensory, and anger issues as well as co-lead parenting groups and psychoeducational groups. Additionally, Kayla spent a number of years as a camp counselor at Pine Cove Christian family camps. It was during this time serving in college that Kayla felt God calling her to become a professional counselor.
Through her work with children and families, Kayla has gained a heart for serving her clients during difficult moments and life transitions while witnessing the happiness and joy in growth along the process. Kayla believes that children and families are resilient and capable of growth and healing when provided a safe space and through the positive collaboration of the client and therapeutic relationship.
When she is not working with her clients, Kayla loves to spend time with her family and friends, paint, travel, watch A&M football, serve in YoungLife, and explore the city of Dallas.
