She/Her/HersLicensed Marriage and Family Therapist, LMFT Specialties • Insurance & Fees • Locations
Savanah Kite is a Licensed Marriage and Family therapist who sees clients virtually. Sessions with Savanah are typically casual and dare it be said- fun? Populations that Savanah is most excited and experienced working with are families, couples, the LGBTQIA community, and people of color/culture.
Savanah works from a Humanistic framework that suggests that we all have within us the ability to navigate our lives expertly, but that low self worth can cloud that. Sometimes we can become stuck in patterns that served us growing up, but that might not be helping us now. This can look like issues in communication with partners, as well as hyperfixating on anxious and depressive thoughts that keep us up at night, asking ourselves, "Remember that time you disappointed your dad when you were 9 years old?"
We all do the best we can with the tools we have at the time. In sessions with Savanah, you'll have the opportunity to learn new tools for handling life's inevitable ups and downs, utilize effective communication skills with your partner, and get to a place where you're able to more fully experience the present moment and appreciate the small joys of a regular ol' Tuesday.
