Kylie Gerks, MS, MFT | The ATL Therapist
Welcome to my site! I'm so glad you're taking the first step toward a more fulfilling life. As a systemic therapist, I believe that the various relationships we're a part of are a key component of our emotional and mental health. By examining the role you play in the various systems you're a part of, we can learn more about what makes you... you!
I am a strength-based, solution-focused Marriage and Family Therapist who works collaboratively with you to help you identify your goals & how we can get there - together. I am committed to providing you a safe space that's free of judgment and attends to all backgrounds, cultures, and walks of life. My clients are often dealing with issues such as relationship difficulties, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, substance abuse, parenting issues, identity development, grief, marital problems, and family conflict. I am also a certified Prepare/Enrich Facilitator for engaged or soon-to-be engaged couples. In addition to therapy services I offer professional, relationship, and life coaching as a Certified Solution-Focused Coach. It's a privilege to be a part of your journey, and I aim to help you along the way through proactivity, collaboration, and compassion.
My clinical background includes providing individual, couples, family and group therapy at The Brief Therapy Institute in Davie, Florida. I have also previously served as a Behavioral Health Counselor at Broward Outreach Center, a comprehensive residential program aimed at overcoming homelessness and substance abuse, as well as a Bereavement Clinician at Camp Erin, a youth camp for bereaved children aged 5 to 18. I received my Master's Degree in Marriage & Family Therapy from Nova Southeastern University after completing my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology at Florida Atlantic University. I currently work with individuals, couples, families, & groups at Midtown Psychotherapy Associates under the direction and supervision of Meg McLeroy, LMFT.
