Meet Kyarra Bright

Kyarra Bright, M.S., CCC-SLP, NTMTC is a nationally certified speech-language pathologist and certified Neonatal Touch and Massage Therapist, specializing in pediatric speech and feeding therapy.

She graduated with a Master of Science in Communication Science and Disorders from California Baptist University. She is certified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, holds the Certificate of Clinical Competence, and has received the ASHA ACE award for her dedication to continuing education.

Kyarra has experience working in a variety of settings including pediatric and adult hospitals, outpatient clinics, and schools (elementary and preschool). Aside from managing her private practice, she also works at a pediatric hospital providing speech and feeding therapy to children with tracheostomy/ventilator dependence, feeding tube dependence, neurological disorders (e.g., traumatic brain injury, stroke), and more.

What would your clients and colleagues say is your therapist superpower?

My clients and colleagues would definitely tell you that my superpower is my ability to make a connection with my clients and quickly build rapport with them! This is important to me because without establishing a good connection with my clients and their caregivers, I don’t have a strong foundation to build on. I am so blessed to have built many great connections with my clients and their caregivers.

 

What is one thing that you have learned through your own therapy?

One of the many things that I’ve learned through providing services for clients is the importance of educating and training caregivers. I emphasize education and training during sessions so caregivers can advocate for their child and feel confident while supporting their child’s speech and feeding skills outside of sessions.

 

Why did you decide to start your own private practice?

After working several years as a pediatric SLP in the medical field I noticed that there were several areas of need that weren’t being addressed. Many patients who had been discharged from the hospital, for example, were struggling to find a speech and/or feeding therapy provider to continue to support their child, leaving them at risk for decline in their speech, language, cognitive, and/or feeding skills. I created my business to help fill that gap and create a space for clients to continue to grow and reach their potential.

Therapy Styles

Short Term (Solution-focused, etc.) 
Ideal for those who are coming in with a specific problem they’d like to address and gain clarity on. Typically, short term therapies are present focused and do not dive deep into your past.

Structured
Structured therapies are goal and progress oriented. Therapists may incorporate psychoeducation and a specific “curriculum.” In order to stay on track, therapists may provide worksheets and homework.

Insight-oriented (Psychodynamic, Existential, etc.) 
Exploring the past and making connections to present issues can help clients gain insight. Getting to the root of the issue and finding deeper self-awareness can help with long-term change.

Non-directive (Humanistic, Person-centered, etc.)
Going with the flow and seeing where it leads.

Behavioral (CBT, DBT, etc.)
Focuses on changing potentially unhealthy or self-destructive behaviors by addressing problematic thought patterns and specific providing coping skills.

Trauma Focused (EMDR, TF-CBT, etc.)
Recognizing the connection between trauma experiences and your emotional and behavioral responses, trauma focused therapy seeks to help you heal from traumas.
