Meet Ms. Evelyn-Cunningham

Hello! My name is Kayla Evelyn-Cunningham, and my Master’s in Forensic Psychology.  I am currently pursuing my doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology.  I attended the illustrious Morgan State University for my Bachelor’s in Psychology. At Morgan State, I was involved in many organizations, but one in particular, focused on confidence. This organization allowed me to travel to numerous schools, mental health facilities, and other settings to speak to individuals about self-confidence, self-motivation, and self-compassion. Since then, I began shaping my practices around the importance of an individual’s sense of self. I have found it lays the foundation for every aspect and element within their lives.

My passion in the field of mental health grew immensely in 2015, when I began working in various correctional facilities and detention centers to help those within the incarcerated population. Since then, I have also gained much experience working with individuals who have experience with substance abuse, juveniles within the school systems, and many other individuals of all ages in various therapeutic settings. I interned for a year working with highly experienced clinicians who helped guide and shape my skill set to properly assist those who experienced trauma, depression, anxiety, bipolar, and borderline personality disorder.

My focus when facilitating groups or individual sessions is self-empowerment and challenging negative perspectives with more positive outlooks. Life can sometimes feel overpowering, and obligations that need to be met can also seem unbearable at times. Still, I believe there will always be some good in what may all seem bad at the moment. I have found my theoretical orientation – cognitive behavioral therapy has helped many of my previous clients reduce stress levels, cope with untimely life changes such as relationships and other losses, and ultimately feel more grounded within their circumstances. We may not always be able to change a situation, but we can help transform your perspective of your circumstances. I look forward to assisting you!
