About Kayla

Welcome to Renteria Counseling Services. Choosing a therapist can often be difficult--ensuring a good fit is vital to your experience in therapy. I would love to make this process a little easier for you by sharing a bit about me and my experiences.

I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor serving adolescents and adults in the Louisville community. I’ve lived in the Kentuckiana region my whole life, growing up in New Albany, Indiana. My passion for seeking a deeper understanding of the human mind began in my undergraduate studies, where I majored in Philosophy. During these studies, I developed a love for exploring the human condition and the complexity of our experiences.

I continued my academic career in the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program at Indiana State University in Terre Haute, Indiana. There, I studied under a highly qualified team of mental health experts. After graduating with my Masters of Science, I pursued licensure as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Indiana and as a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Kentucky.

My professional experiences have provided me the opportunity to work in residential treatment, substance abuse treatment, foster care, community mental health, and most recently, private practice. I am currently specializing in the treatment of trauma for both adolescents and adults. I have been trained in evidence based practices that have been shown to be highly effective for anxiety, depression, and trauma. You can learn more about those treatment models under the Counseling Services tab.

My mission is to work collaboratively and compassionately with you to address the areas you want to change in your life. I approach the therapy process with your strengths in mind, building upon them to give you the skills needed to harness strength and growth. In my office, you’ll find a comfortable, non-judgemental place to explore your goals and challenges. There is great power in sharing your story with a trusted person. I believe in that power, and I feel honored to be a part of that with each one of my clients.

When you’re ready, give me a call. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you!
