NOW ACCEPTING A LIMITED CASE LOAD

I help people create and maintain healthy relationships.”

Hello, I’m Kayla! I am the Founder and CEO of Evolution Wellness. I started out as a solo private practice in early 2016 and quickly grew into a group practice because I wanted to offer the Wilmington community a high quality counseling experience. My own experience in finding and working with counselors had me feeling frustrated. I didn’t want to just have a validating conversation. I wanted a therapist who would help me grow – a blend of confrontation to challenge my negative patterns but also compassionate support to hold space for me as I heal. Because I couldn’t find that, I created a practice where this “Clinical Excellence” is the highest value of the team. 

I’m fun, no-nonsense, and get really excited about discovering the tools to help people thrive. Think of me like the Jillian Michaels of mental health. I serve not only to support healing the dysfunction, but as a motivational coach to develop skills and follow through with behaviors to improve wellbeing. 

The cool thing about therapists is each one finds their own ‘jam.’ My jam is relationships. I love to work with couples to manage conflict effectively and individuals to heal the trauma of their upbringing and become healthier in their relationship with themselves and others. 

Relationship therapy also helps individuals overcome challenges such as learning to set boundaries, getting out of their family roles, and finding meaningful friendships. So much anxiety/depression comes from our relationships with ourselves and the relationships with others. My area of study has led me to training in Imago Therapy and the Gottman Method. My training has helped me set myself apart from “conversational” sessions to sessions that really feel like a mental health workout.
