Kylee is a provisionally licensed mental health practitioner (PLMHP). Kylee earned her B.S. in Psychology and M.S. in School Counseling from Fort Hays State University in Hays, Kansas.
Kylee's passion for working with children and their families began in her work within the school system and further developed in her work as a school-based therapist. In these roles, Kylee gained valuable experience working with children, their families, and school staff to help them achieve their goals.
Kylee believes that no two children are the same and for this reason, uses a variety of techniques to ensure treatment is tailored to each individual. Some of these techniques include: talking, telling therapeutic stories, drama (role-playing), expressive art, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (working on thoughts and feelings and how they change our mood), and integrating play into the skills taught in the therapy room.
Kylee works first by understanding the unique needs of every child and their family while working towards alleviating any symptoms. Not sure where to turn for help with your child? Book with Kylee when you are ready to have a professional eye and a collaborative practitioner who has the deep compassion required to do excellent work with children.
Kylee is under the direct supervision and mentorship of Laura Kinney, LIMHP, LCSW, LISW.
