Kayla Chauvin, LPC
Senior Counselor
Fully Licensed
Specialized in ADHD

Choosing a therapist can be an incredibly intimidating process, but the secret to it is simple—trust your gut! I encourage you to listen to your gut, both while you are choosing a therapist and throughout the entirety of the therapeutic process; doing so is one of the best ways to honor yourself and find the right fit for you. So here is a snapshot of my approach for you to consider as you begin this new chapter of healing and growth in your life! 

My focus as your counselor will be to put you at ease, create an atmosphere of authenticity, invite exploration across diverse identities, engage with you in genuine curiosity, and provide you with resources for your progress. I cater each session to your needs and make adjustments to treatment as the specifics of your experiences and goals unfold. My care builds upon your existing strengths, focuses on the collaborative nature between client and therapist, and is particularly sensitive to the ways that trauma can influence a person’s journey. 

Perhaps you are unsure how to move away from compulsive caregiving, feel disconnected from knowing what you want or need, struggle to express yourself during moments of conflict, want to understand why family relationships feel heavy, or feel the burnout of lifelong perfectionism. Maybe you sense that you have experienced religious trauma, or feel as if you are always playing catch up, or wonder why things impact you so deeply. I invite you to follow those intuitions and reach out to connect. 

I have a particular passion for supporting clients going through experiences related to LGBTQIA+ issues. I understand the long-lasting influence that being closeted for a period of time or being out and not feeling safe can have on a person. Isolation, shame, rejection, and grief are, unfortunately, among the most formative experiences imposed on the LGBTQIA+ population. Allow me to walk beside you as you define your own identity, unhinge the pain of your past or present, and envision the life you actually want to build. 

When I am not working I carve out time to camp, bike, travel, garden, and connect with my partner, her family, and my community. My pets (Gizmo, Gnocchi, Tomato, and Basil) keep me busy in the interim!
