Hello, I am an experienced Licensed Clinical Social Worker who has an extensive background in treating depression, anxiety, PTSD, and other mental health issues.

***Accepting new client's Please call (325)266-1168 or email at CayalaLCSW@gmail.com***
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 5 years of clinical experience across a variety of settings including structured outpatient programs, inpatient psychiatric facilities, and the jail setting. I graduated from Baylor University and have extensive experience treating childhood trauma, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and grief. I have a broad range of clinical experience working with children, adolescents, and adults.
Along with being trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) my approach uses a blend of many therapeutic modalities including, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Play Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy, and mindfulness and relaxation. My aim is to provide a therapy style that fits your needs, and make sure you get the most out of our time together.
Much like any relationship, a therapeutic relationship relies on mutual trust, honesty, and dedication. During our sessions together you can expect transparent communication, compassion, empathy, and acceptance. Having this foundation makes it is possible to move forward and to reach your goals in a safe/non-judgmental space.
