Kayla Schubert-Wirth, LCSW
Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
believe that any strong therapeutic relationship is built on collaboration, honesty, and the belief that change is possible. My work is rooted in shared humor, truth without judgment, a holistic approach with the mind/body connection, and building on individual strengths. I am trained in EMDR and will be certified by March 2022 (within the Lehigh Valley there are currently only 3 certified EMDR therapists).
Sometimes traumatic childhood experiences can cause long-term anxiety and even PTSD. Having suffered from some of my own trauma as a child, I knew I needed to heal myself first before I could effectively help others. . And it is from this place, that I have a genuine desire to help others who are trying to recover from difficult life circumstances.
I know how infuriating it can be to find a therapist you can connect with as I have personally fired 6 out of 7 of my own therapists. It’s important to note that I’m not your “typical therapist” (I dye my hair bright colors, will curse with you during sessions, and actively compete in powerlifting).
