“People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don't find myself saying, "Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner." I don't try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.” -Carl Rogers

I am currently a LPCA under the supervision of Sandy Quast, LPCS of Coastal Haven Counseling. 

As a child, adolescent and adult counselor, I am passionate about helping others through life's challenges. My goal is to provide a safe space to support growth, transparency, and change. I work with individuals, families and couples to facilitate goals, provide coping skills, and improve overall understanding of how to utilize these in everyday life, school, and home. I utilize several techniques including: EMDR, Behavior Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), TF-CBT, Mindfulness, Christian Counseling, and Person-Centered. I am also a Certified SYMBIS Facilitator for Marriage Counseling.

I am currently a LPCA under the supervision of Sandy Quast, LPCS of Coastal Haven Counseling.  I look forward to working with you and supporting you on this journey as we navigate life's everyday challenges together!

Kayla O'Riley, LPCA

The journey of mental health is a long, winding road. Sometimes it is hard to find direction, and taking the step to seek counseling is one of the bravest things someone can do!  Although the road may have construction, detours, or stop signs, my goal is to support you through the obstacles you face in life's greatest challenges.

By using a person-centered approach, my goal is to help you work through whatever you're going through, learn more about yourself, and develop a healthy lifestyle so you can be the best person you can be.  Working with ages 5 to 35, I use techniques such as Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Motivational Interviewing, Christian-based Therapy, Play Therapy, Music Therapy, Art Therapy, and Emotion-Focused Therapy.

I received my undergraduate degree in Psychology from Coastal Carolina University and graduated from Capella University with my Master's degree in 2023. I am currently a LPCA under the supervision of Sandy Quast, LPCS of Coastal Haven Counseling.
