Please note that as of April 1, 2022, Kayla has completed her role as a Master of Counselling Practicum Student at Mindbuffs and is in the process of obtaining licensing as a Provisional Psychologist. In the meantime, Kayla will assume the title of Unlicensed Mental Health Therapist until final approval is granted (estimated December 2022).

Growing up, sport helped me recognize the importance of perseverance, drive, and passion. It was on the basketball court or the long training runs that I began to develop an awareness of my strengths and weaknesses, learn my core values, and develop a level of purpose I may not have discovered without those experiences. My previous career experience as a teacher and a coach of adolescents left me with the feeling that something was missing – the element that connects the individual to their ultimate potential.

Reflecting on my experiences as an athlete, teacher, and coach I acknowledge there is a lot of work to do in reducing mental health stigma, hence why I landed here at Mindbuffs. Working from a client-centred approach, my goal is to support you in achieving your desired outcome. I value that individuality plays a large role in the development of strategies that will work both on the court (field/rink/pitch/stage/platform…) and off in your everyday life.


Please be advised that Kayla is currently in the process of obtaining licensing as a Provisional Psychologist and is not covered by insurance during this period of transition.
