Hi! I’m Kylee and I’m passionate about helping women during pregnancy & postpartum and helping highly sensitive mamas thrive in motherhood.
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Denver, CO
I have completed training with Postpartum Support International to treat perinatal mood disorders. My treatment style is strengths focused, relationship centered and action based. This means we will first focus on helping you feel safe and understood in therapy, finding ways to engage your support system to support you in ways that actually feel helpful and focusing on specific things you can do with your thoughts and behaviors to feel better.
As a highly sensitive person myself, I understand how an overstimulating lifestyle can lead to symptoms that mimic anxiety and depression. I can help you navigate your life and make changes so you can let your light shine and reduce overwhelm in your life. Sometimes small, sustainable changes can have a huge impact.
I am certified in Circle of Security Parenting and Trust Based Relational Intervention. I can help you learn ways to connect with your child, to get your child to follow directions without power struggles and to see where your past experiences may be impacting your parenting and how to make changes so you’re present and intentional with your parenting choices.
Using CBT in therapy allows me to help clients feel empowered and in control of their lives and mental health by learning skills and techniques to become in control of their thoughts and behaviors. We don’t realize how many of our thoughts and behaviors run on autopilot and affect our we feel without us even having a say. I can teach you how to take control of your thoughts and beliefs and make changes when needed so you can feel better.
I hold deep empathy, respect and unconditional positive regard for my clients. This means you are accepted as you are in my therapy room (or zoom room). I believe through this safe, nonjudgemental space you will finally have the space you need to explore your thoughts, feelings and situations without judgement and begin to love and accept yourself as you are.
Acceptance and commitment therapy is all about us working together to help you create a meaningful life. This is a skills based, hands on therapy practice where I will teach you ways to identify and live life by your values, help you learn ways to separate some from those hard thoughts and feelings so you can make decisions based on what you want out of life instead of out of anxiety and fear. We focus on mindfulness, values and strategies to help you create the life you want.
I help my clients explore the stories of their lives, the stories they are telling themselves about their lives and how these all go together to affect our mental health, our self worth and how we see ourselves and the world. Sometimes we've developed stories that are based on fears and anxieties, not on how our life actually is. Taking time to look at these stories and transform these narratives can help improve overall mental health and wellness.
If you’re a mom whose made a difficult decision to end a pregnancy or experienced the loss of a child through miscarriage or stillbirth you deserve space, support and care. Whether you’re experience grief, anxiety, depression or ptsd - help and healing is possible.
As a highly sensitive person myself I know that a huge change like becoming a mom can bring new feelings of anxiety, stress and overwhelm along with the joy & excitement. If you’d like support navigate this transition while honoring yourself as a highly sensitive person - I’m you’re gal!
