Kaylee Curilla, Psy.D.
Licensed Clinical Psychologist
I value working with anyone who wants to learn more about themselves and is craving more meaningful and satisfying relationships. Although I have experience working with late adolescents and adults with a wide array of concerns, I have specialized training in working with the impacts of traumatic experiences, disordered eating, and relationship difficulties. I also have special interests in working with social anxiety, identity development, emotional distress (including suicidal ideation), and attachment-related difficulties.
My view of therapy tends to be relationally-oriented, meaning that I pay particular attention to the importance of current and past relationships, how individuals interact in relationships, and how relationships may impact the view of the self. I believe that therapy should be a collaborative process and strongly believe in the importance of the therapeutic relationship in helping to build more fulfilling connections.
