Marriage and Family Therapist - LLMFT
Are you lost or maybe uncertain of how to move through the difficulties or pain of each day? Daily, we move through our lives without pausing to ask: who am I, how am I feeling, what do I need, what are my values, and how do I choose to respond to this world?
Therapy has the capacity to be a safe, inviting space to move through your stories of wounding to find your empowered self with the guidance of a trained mental health professional. My therapy philosophy is that each person has healing potential within themselves and my goal is to illuminate that healing source through skillful care. I’m a warm and authentic therapist that will help you connect more deeply to yourself, your body, and your relationships for sustainable healing and change.
Kaile (Kay-La) is a Limited Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with a Masters in Counseling Psychology from California Institute of Integral Studies located in San Francisco. As a certified Process Therapist and trained Drama Therapist, Kaile works with couples, families, adolescents, and individual adults, primarily LGBTQIA+ and multiracial folks, around the following:
*trauma and oppression: experiences of sexual abuse, religious abuse, racism, gender binarism, homophobia, and transphobia
*relationship issues: communication issues, overcoming trauma, intimacy issues, and mixed orientation relationships
*sexual and gender identity
*intersectionality: the impact of overlapping identities
Kaile is trained in Nonviolent Communication, Internal Family Systems, Somatic Experiencing, Prepare and Enrich (structured assessment and support for relationships), and Tantric work (a practice of sacred and conscious sexual connection). Their sex and body-positive, Queer-affirming, integral therapeutic approach to working with each client’s needs includes experiential therapy, somatic therapy, relational therapy and family systems therapy.
