Mikayla Stoica


Creating a space of acceptance and collaboration is central to how Mikayla offers therapy. She is passionate about fostering a sense of oasis where you can speak openly and be heard, experience your emotions as held, and feel free of judgment. Envisioning herself as a fellow traveler alongside you, Mikayla values the insight and expertise you already have on your unique life experience, and joins you in bringing caring attention to topics and themes that matter most to you.

She values healing through storytelling, being present with her clients as they shift the narratives within their lives. She offers opportunities to practice resting in a grounded neutral awareness of the present through exploring breathing techniques, mindfulness, somatic experiences, visual imagery, progressive muscle relaxation, as well as bilateral stimulation and tapping as routes to support the mind-body connection and grow emotional regulation skills, in line with the angles of exploration of greatest interest to each client.

Mikayla is a queer and poly-friendly therapist and welcomes clients navigating anxiety, panic attacks, depression, grief and healing trauma. She also has a special interest in working with clients who are navigating neurodiversity, expanding upon strengths, building intentional routines, initiating and articulating themselves within personally meaningful conversations, and those looking for ways to effectively release lingering thought patterns.
