Hello and welcome! I’m so glad you’re here and looking forward to our work together.
My name is Hayley Kirchoff and I’m a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in south Florida and a Board Certified Counselor (NCC).
I specialize in helping children ages 4 – 12 years-old, teenagers, and adults overcome feelings of anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and a history of trauma, to name a few concerns. As a parent, I know firsthand some of the worries and fears we can have for our children and wanting to help them in any way we can.
Some of my areas of expertise are:
- Children and adolescents
- College students/young adults
- Life changes and transitions
- Self-esteem issues
For children, I incorporate Play Therapy, Sand Tray, and EMDR techniques into our sessions to create a safe and welcoming environment where your child can explore those sometimes overwhelmingly big feelings in a little person’s body. And the same goes for adults! While it can be reassuring knowing your therapist has a strong tool box from which to draw and incorporate into session, one of the most important factors for change is the quality of the therapeutic relationship. I strive to build a relationship with you (or your child) where we are both equals walking alongside one another on this journey. At times I may offer my point of view, or another way of looking at the situation, yet know that you are the expert of your life
As an Adlerian therapist, I strongly believe in the innate goodness of people which is sometimes overshadowed by feelings of discouragement and our mistaken thoughts of ourselves, others, and the world. Together, we’ll work towards identifying goals for yourself and changes you’d like to see in your life. With a little education and guidance, I’m confident of your success in making improvements for you or your child.
