About Kira Hayes

I am queer identifying (she/her/hers)

I believe the relationship between client and therapist is the foundation for healing, so I do my best to provide a therapeutic space that is safe and free of judgment for all diverse individuals, relationships, and families.

I have a laid back personality and maintain an active, direct, and authentically engaging therapy space. I plan to be alongside you as a supportive teammate to help work through the challenges.

My personal therapy approach is attachment based and integrated. I value therapy that evolves to meet each person's unique needs. I am collaborative, process experiential, and humanistic, with a systemic lens.

My formal training includes a Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy with a specialization in LGBTQ+ Couples and Family Therapy. I work to maintain a current and knowledgable practice by actively pursuing my training and education.

My areas of focus include working with:

gender and sexual/affectional minorities

non-monogamy

intersectionalities (intersecting identities) and minority stress

intimate relationships

family therapy

communication and conflict resolution

trauma processing

sex and kink positivity

anxiety and depression
