“I started working with Kayla at Steadfast Counselling in person last year. When I first met with Kayla for a consultation she went above and beyond to accommodate my needs and was very welcoming. Ultimately, Kayla created a safe space for me to share my thoughts and feelings. Since then we have moved to online sessions. The online sessions did not impair the level of care and support provided, it was an easy transition to make. The secure software, calendar syncing and email notifications make it easy to be on time for an appointment in the comfort of my own home. I will be continuing to work online with Kayla as I have greatly enjoyed the connection and support she has offered. I highly recommend Steadfast Counselling and Online sessions. Being able to maintain counselling online has been a huge help during this pandemic.” — Kyla T
“When I first went to see Kayla at Steadfast Counseling I was hesitant – I hadn’t had the best experiences with other mental health practitioners and I wasn’t certain that my own anxiety really warranted counseling. I am so glad that I went and I can’t recommend her enough.
Kayla is naturally empathic, open-minded and easy to connect with. Sessions are never formulaic or impersonal. She is insightful and well rounded, offering different approaches and perspectives that meet me where I’m at on a given day. I connect well with plants and nature and she never fails to forget this – offering plant metaphors or encouraging me to include time spent in the forest as part of my self-care routine.
Our sessions have provided me with a safe space to express myself (especially that which is most difficult for me to express in the day to day) and helped me to find more clarity and contentment in my life. I’m so grateful to have found Kayla. She’s a great counselor and a true healer.” — Emily
“I can’t say enough great things about Kayla Law at Steadfast Counselling. Having never been to a Counsellor before I didn’t expect how warm, understanding and on point Kayla would be! She helped me through a very difficult time in my life and my marriage. Kayla is a real gem!” — Yelp reviewer
“We have had a beneficial and wonderful experience working with Kayla L. these last few months. When she meets with us, she is completely focused during our session. She does not push us into areas we are not ready for while challenging us when we do need it. She has been caring, non-judgemental, and understanding throughout this time. We would recommend her to anyone who needs a caring heart and listening ear!” — Yelp reviewer
