Looking for a supervisor?
Look no further!
My name is Kira S. Kayler, LMFT, and I am currently accepting supervisees who are looking to advance their clinical repertoire, learn the in’s and out’s of private practice counseling, and develop a newfound sense of confidence and competence. I can supervise Associate Marriage and Family Therapists.
Choosing the right supervisor can make all the difference when it comes to launching yourself as a clinician. I created this page to help those seeking licensure and training learn more about how I practice, teach, and mentor my supervisees.
If you want to find out more or connect in-person, I would love to hear from you! Please feel free to send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or contact me through our website. To learn about how my supervision style can help meet your needs, read on!
About my Practice: Key Insights Counseling
Key Insights Counseling is a private practice psychotherapy clinic located in Rohnert Park, California. We offer individual therapy for people from all over the area, such as Cotati, Sebastopol, Santa Rosa, Penngrove, Petaluma, and beyond.
Our client demographics are broad and diverse, and so my hope (and expectation) is that you will encounter clients whose identity markers differ from your own. Two-thirds of our practice consists of children and their families, although we see clients across all ages, and most are low-income. Regarding ethnic identity, about 85% of our clients identify as White/Caucasian and 5% identify as Latino/Hispanic, with the other 10% representing an incredibly diverse range of ethnic backgrounds. We also see a great deal of gender and sexuality diversity, and we strive to be a safe haven for all of our clients.
Our clinicians employ a wide range of therapeutic techniques, such as EMDR, Expressive Arts, Somatic, Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Solution-Focused Therapy, to help meet our clients’ needs efficiently and holistically. Our services are designed to incorporate the latest research while offering strategic, compassionate, and solution-focused treatment.
The practice is called “Key Insights” for a reason. We believe in those incredible “aha” moments, those breakthrough realizations where children, teens, adults, and families discover the key to unlocking success. Our goal is, no matter what your struggle might be, to help you find those key insights and move forward with a life worth living. We help clients learn to have difficult conversations by having difficult conversations with them. We have high expectations for the people we work with, and we provide ample support in our efforts to drive them closer to their goals.

About my Supervision Style
As a therapist, employ an eclectic approach to the work. Although much of my conceptualization is rooted in family theory, systems, and CBT, I draw from a wide range of techniques in my practice, such as:
- Somatic and expressive arts
- Solution-focused therapy
- Jungian therapy
- Attachment and EFT
- … and more!
I believe that human diversity calls for practical diversity – there is no “one size fits all” when it comes to the practice of psychotherapy. Learning to be flexible and holistically-minded as a clinician is an important skill, both for understanding how to help a wider range of clients as well as being able to speak the language of other clinicians.
As you might guess, I use a similar approach to supervision. No two supervisees are alike, and so I firmly believe that your supervision experience should be tailored to you and your needs. I strive to be your teacher, evaluator, guide and role model. Sometimes, I am a shoulder to cry on, a place to come to decompress or vent. Sometimes, I am a motivational speaker, giving you that extra boost and drive. And sometimes, I am the supportive – but firm – giver of difficult feedback as I help you grow and improve.
We will create goals specifically designed around your needs and aspirations as a counselor. Some examples of this might include:
- Enhanced clinical skill
- Improved diagnostic accuracy
- A deeper sense of clinical confidence
- Formulating strong case conceptualizations
- Learning a new clinical approach (e.g., EMDR)
- Increased competence with a particular client demographic
- Documentation skills
Additionally, as a “corporate deserter” with a strong background in business and leadership, I hope to augment your training with practical knowledge around developing and managing a private practice. You’ll have the chance to learn skills such as:
- Marketing yourself and your practice
- Identifying your niche
- Insurance and billing
- Deciding if you want to start a private practice
- Scheduling and administration
- … and more!
You deserve strong supervision during this critical time of clinical development, and I want to help make that happen. If this sounds like a good fit for you, let’s connect! I would love to hear from you.
