Kayla Williams, MA
Licensed Graduate Professional Counselor
Kayla has experience and specialized training in working with children, adolescents, parents, and families struggling with grief and loss, divorce, emotional regulation, adjustment, anxiety, depression, navigating child-parent relationships, and attachment disruptions. She also has experience working with foster families and military families. Before becoming a counselor Kayla’s background was centered in working with children in a teaching, tutoring, and mentoring capacity. This experience informs her current clinical work as she has a wealth of knowledge on the social, emotional and cognitive processes involved in learning and developmental growth and how these aspects are impacted by mental health.
Kayla provides talk and play therapy using an integrative approach rooted in Child Centered Play Therapy (CCPT), Person-Centered, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Kayla believes that the therapeutic relationship is one of the most important factors that impact growth and change. Through her empathetic nature and passion for children and families, Kayla hopes to better support children and families through their various challenges. One of Kayla’s biggest goals is to continue to bridge the gap between children, adolescents, and their families.
Kayla is a Licensed Graduate Professional Counselor practicing under the supervision of Dr. Courtney Glickman. She obtained her Master of Arts degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from The George Washington University in Washington, D.C.
