Kalee Floyd’s Therapist Disclosure Statement <<< (Clickable)

I believe that one of the most important parts of counseling is the therapeutic relationship, so I do my best to create a safe, welcoming space for you. I feel that counseling should be both helpful and enjoyable. I hope that through our work together, you will feel seen, accepted, and empowered to create the world you want to live in. I draw from several approaches to support my clients, such as feminist theories, mindfulness-based approaches, CBT interventions, client-centered approaches, and narrative therapy practices.

I am currently enrolled at Gonzaga University in the Clinical Mental Health Counseling MA program. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, traveling, going to concerts, watching horror movies, and exploring the Pacific Northwest.

Q&A with Kalee

1.) Some therapists are more comfortable addressing the immediate problem, while others want to focus on the deeper issue. Which are you?

I believe it’s important to focus on both. It is important to address immediate problems, however, I have found that those are often related to deeper issues.

2.) Do you tend to lead the session, or follow my lead?

I prefer to take a collaborative approach, but I cater my approach depending on the client and the presenting concern. I believe clients are the experts on their own lives and will meet them where they are in order to help them achieve their goals.

3.) What are your strengths as a therapist?

Developing relationships. Non-judgmental. Instilling hope. Compassionate. Empathetic.

4.) If you had one superpower, what would it be and why?

Definitely teleportation. I love to travel and explore new places and teleportation would make that so much easier.

5.) What makes you laugh?

I believe laughter is so important and utilize humor frequently, when appropriate. I love dry humor, witty humor, and sarcasm. I also enjoy stand-up comedy, puns, and animal videos.

6.) Who would you have dinner with, dead or alive?

I have several family members I would choose. Barring anyone I know personally though, I would probably choose Stevie Nicks or Roger Waters.
