Hello, I'm Kyle Kearns

About Me:

I have spent the past 9 years as a researcher studying romantic relationships. While I love that part of my job, it usually takes 5-10 years for research discoveries to make their way into your therapy session (which is too long!). So, I became a therapist to be part of the hard work that couples are doing every day.

 

I have lived in Austin for 10 years, and I'm grateful for my chosen family here. When I'm not with them, I spend a lot of time with my imaginary friends in books, TV shows, and podcasts. I do my best thinking at the grocery store, the dance floor, or the park.

My Fees:

  • $40 for couples

  • $25 for individuals

 

My Education & Training:

  • Certified Sex Therapy Informed Professional 

  • Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

  • Master's in Professional Counseling, Texas State University

  • PhD in Interpersonal Communication Research, UT Austin

  • Master's in Interpersonal Communication Research, UT Austin

  • Bachelor of Arts & Sciences, Baylor University

Therapy with me

I work with couples and individual adults who feel stuck. In therapy, we identify the patterns that keep you from the change you want.

I will help you reach those goals by creating a supportive space to explore, reflecting back what I observe, and sharing what I've learned from a decade of studying relationships and mental health.

 

I specialize in working with clients in stigmatized and under-represented relationships: queer folks, consensual non-monogamy, kink, long distance, poly. Though I use a wide range of techniques, my main approach is somatic internal family systems therapy.

 

Somatic IFS helps us uncover the ways different complex parts of you interact to protect you and shape your experience.
