Kyra earned her bachelor’s degree in psychology from Stevenson University and is working towards her master’s in counseling psychology, graduating in the spring of 2024.
Previously, before beginning her internship at Mirror Mental Health as a counseling psychology intern, Kyra gained experience working with adults in an inpatient setting at MedStar Harbor Hospital. Kyra has also gained experience working with adolescents diagnosed with Autism at The Kennedy Krieger Institute, conducting behavioral assessments and creating behavioral treatment plans.

Kyra will be working with Mirror Mental Health from August 2023 to May 2024.
I have experience working with adults in an inpatient setting diagnosed with various diagnoses, such as anxiety, mood, eating, and psychotic disorders. Before working with adults, I worked one-on-one with adolescents diagnosed with Autism in an inpatient care setting.
Why Kyra Became a Therapist
Everyone is battling a silent battle that may be difficult for them to communicate, cope, or acknowledge. I became a therapist to help clients work through their problems and concerns positively and healthily. In addition, working with clients who look like me may feel like they must navigate through the world, holding on to their childhood traumas and experiences.
How Kyra Lives Authentically
I live authentically by practicing self-care and ensuring I tend to myself and my needs. Also, listening to my body, knowing when to step away from my studies, and work to practice self-care and self-love.
