Kyra individualizes her interventions based on client needs, but primarily focuses on dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).
Kyra views therapy as partnership between herself and the client, creating a trusting and supportive relationship.

She enjoys helping clients reach their goals and make positive changes in their lives.
