Kyleigh has experience providing assessments and treatment to children, adolescents, and emerging adults with: anxiety and mood problems, low self-esteem, health-related issues (e.g., complex pain and headaches), Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, learning and attention problems, sleep difficulties, grief and loss, emotion regulation difficulties, and relationship issues. She is also committed to supporting parents to feel better equipped to manage difficult behavior at home and to better understand their children.

Kyleigh tailors each assessment and treatment to meet the unique needs of each child and family she meets. Her therapeutic approach includes cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and attachment-based interventions. When Kyleigh is not practicing, she is building a program of research at the University of Calgary that aims to improve care for youth with chronic and complex needs.
