Kylie has been a licensed counselor since 2018 after graduating from John Brown University with a Masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. She has experience working with a wide range of clients and families and is currently focused on providing trauma-informed care for teens and adults. She believes in the power of self-acceptance and providing support for her clients through genuineness, positive regard, and a nonjudgmental approach to therapeutic relationships. She also firmly believes that change in the counseling setting comes from creating safe, comfortable spaces that allow individuals to be fully themselves in an inclusive, welcoming environment.

After becoming a new mom right before the pandemic hit, Kylie found a passion for helping parents who face challenges related to the perinatal period (planning, pregnancy, and postpartum). She has advanced training in perinatal mental health and is working toward completing her Perinatal Mental Health Certification (PMH-C). She currently serves on the board for the Arkansas Chapter of Postpartum Support International (PSI) to help increase awareness on the prevalence of perinatal mental health disorders and how they impact new parents.

Outside of the office, Kylie keeps busy by spending time with her family doing things like camping, visiting parks, hiking, and other activities that are best-suited for life in the Natural State with an energetic toddler. She lives on a farm and enjoys being around animals of all varieties, large and small. Some of her favorite things include the color orange, anything tie-dye, and coffee..all the coffee.
