Kiera provides individual psychotherapy for children, teens, and college students. She is passionate about meeting the individual needs of her clients, and takes time to listen to your concerns, collaborating with families to develop tailored treatment plans. In sessions, ample time is spent building and growing a relationship with your child, so clients feel comfortable and heard. With her heavy school-based background, she is most passionate about supporting school problems and children and teens with anxiety, depression, and/or behavioral struggles. She also enjoys executive functioning coaching and consulting with caregivers on strategies to support best outcomes for their child. Kiera aims to create an empathetic and safe environment that promotes individuals’ strengths and expands tools in their tool kits for future success.

Outside of work, Kiera loves to spend time with her husband and her fur babies (dog and cat). She loves to try new things and be creative both with crafts and with cooking, and spends her free time either reading or exploring the great outdoors.
