Hello

My name is Kayla

I am warm, compassionate and care deeply about connecting with others. I seek to understand the experience of each individual and respect what makes each person I work with unique. 

 

​I work with individuals using a mix of techniques to “re-wire” the brain and body to soothe distress, enrich relationships and support self-care practices. 

 

​I practice from an anti-oppressive, anti-racist, feminist, and sex positive viewpoint. I work with with clients of all gender identities and sexual orientations. This is an LGBTQIA2S+ safe space. 

I hope to support you to deepen your self-understanding, increase your self-kindness, decrease overwhelm and resolve emotional triggers, blocks and unfinished business from trauma or painful memories. 

 

My home office

I'm located in the Annex near Spadina subway. I have two sweet cuddly cats and they may sit beside you during your session. If you have a cat allergy, live far away, have mobility issues or require the convenience of meeting online, I am happy to accommodate video sessions.
