Nice to meet you, I’m Kai
Vulnerability is hard. To reach out for help takes a great deal of courage. It also is an important act of resiliency. At the heart of my work as a therapist is the belief that every individual possesses a unique and important story. It is through the storytelling experience where we begin to explore, question, examine and re-shape pieces of our narrative that are no longer serving us, while also building on strengths we often overlook. As a therapist, I believe being invited along in such a journey to be an incredibly special privilege.
I find that the most important part of our work together is building a trusting and honest working alliance together. Utilizing a trauma-informed approach, my therapeutic style is grounded in person-centered therapy and incorporates aspects of CBT, DBT, and mindfulness practice. I specialize in providing therapeutic services to adults and adolescents.
I specialize in working with individuals who are experiencing symptoms of anxiety, OCD, depression and other related mood disorders, substance abuse concerns, trauma, and PTSD. I have clinical experience and am trained in ERP, an evidence-based practice designed to address OCD. I have clinical experience implementing Prolonged Exposure therapy, an evidence-based treatment aimed to address PTSD. Utilizing a strength-based approach, guided by the encouragement of self-compassion practices, I am passionate about working with individuals to rediscover their resiliency.
I have experience working in various levels of care, from Inpatient Services, Partial Hospitalization Programs, Intensive Outpatient Programs, and Outpatient Therapy. This clinical experience can help to conceptualize the spectrum of mental health services, offering direction, and understanding navigating care options. Through our work together, you will observe my commitment to providing quality, client-focused care. As finding the therapist who is the right fit for you is very important, I invite you to please reach out with any questions.
