About Kyra Ross, MHC-LP
A sanctuary of healing and growth where individuals of diverse backgrounds are embraced with compassion and understanding. With nearly two decades of experience working in a high stress and high reward industry, I am dedicated, understanding and passionate in guiding high-functioning adults through various personal, professional, and relationship challenges.
**Approach and Specializations**
My therapeutic approach is comprehensive and built on evidence-based interventions, drawing from cognitive behavioral, strength-based, and Rogerian therapies. Emphasizing the integration of the whole person, I believe that healing and growth require recognizing the intricate interplay between the mind, body, and emotions.
As a trauma-informed clinician, I skillfully address the impact of past experiences and societal influences. Clients navigating life transitions, boundary setting, stress management, and burn-out benefit from my support and guidance. Empowering clients to foster self-confidence, self-love, and self-acceptance is at the core of my practice.
**Empowerment and Growth**
In our sessions, I employ person-centered techniques, fostering empowerment and personal growth. Together, we’ll navigate the challenges of life, adopting evidence-based interventions such as affirmative practices, self-care rituals, PLEASE skills, and ACT techniques to promote positive transformation.
**Relationships, Transitions, and Trauma**
I specialize in helping clients break negative relationship patterns, foster healthy connections, and navigate significant life transitions. My trauma-informed lens provides a safe and non-judgmental space for clients to explore and heal from race-related and intergenerational traumas.
**Candid, Warm, and Naturally Empathetic**
As your therapist, I provide a candid and direct therapeutic style, combined with warmth and natural empathy. Guided by genuine understanding, I create a supportive environment where you can explore, heal, and transform.
**Personalized Therapy for Sustainable Success**
My goal is to help you adopt and apply the skills learned in therapy, enabling you to reshape negative thoughts and conditions. Together, we’ll work towards achieving sustainable success in various areas of your life.
**Dedicated Researcher and Advocate**
I’m an active researcher in the anti-racism space, allowing me to connect with diverse audiences and address the complexities of race-related trauma. I deeply understand the importance of acknowledging clients’ intersectionality and its influence on their worldview.
**Holistic Mind/Body Connection**
Incorporating my years of yoga training into therapy, I use body and breathwork to strengthen the awareness of the mind/body connection. This holistic approach underscores the foundation of my practice – that integrating the whole person is essential for growth, healing, and flourishing.
**A Bit About Me**
A proud Ram and Big Red, my alma maters are Fordham and Cornell University. I hail from sunny California and have found my heart in New York. Beyond my professional life, I nurture my yoga practice, tend to my flourishing garden, and cherish moments with my beautiful young son.
