Finding the right therapist can be like choosing among healthcare plans or tax preparation options...a tedious necessity in trying to meet your particular needs. We all face difficult times, which lead us to seek help. Psychotherapy helps you become more resilient, find inner strength, and improve your sense of self. I offer evidence-based treatment in a compassionate space based on your assessed needs; our work together will be sensible, practical, and results-oriented. Anyone and everyone are welcome...

I pride myself on being authentic and collaborative with clients, coming from a CBT/DBT focus of thought. My specialty is supporting first responders, military service members (reserve, active, or veterans), and healthcare workers. With that said, I love helping anyone who truly needs help and guidance and is ready for a change in their life.  I myself spent five+ years in the US Navy, serving as a combat medic with the Marines in Camp Lejeune, NC and understand the daily toll of stress, anxiety, and PTSD and how that can affect our lives.

I would describe my therapy style as active and engaging. Generous with ideas, and I see therapy as a forum to conduct collaborative, healing conversations with individual clients, couples, and family members. I would also consider myself an integrative therapist who has training in psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and systemic approaches to therapy.

A personal conversation may be the best way to determine if my clinical practice is right for you. The initial phone consultation is free, and my rates are on a sliding scale if needed. I accept BlueCross BlueShield for insurance or self-pay with a credit/debit card.

Everyone deserves to have someone in their corner!

I am currently see clients via Telehealth and in person at our Raleigh office on Mondays.

Do you need someone to listen without judgment? Therapy is a journey, and I hope you allow yourself permission to take all the space and time you need to work through your emotions.

As a psychotherapist, my clinical mission statement is simple: to provide a safe and supportive environment for individuals seeking mental health assistance. I firmly believe that every person deserves the opportunity to live a happy and fulfilling life, and my role as a therapist is to provide the guidance and support necessary to help my clients achieve that goal.

Throughout my years of experience, I have seen firsthand the transformative power of culturally responsive therapy. I have witnessed incredible growth and healing in my clients by providing a non-judgmental space for individuals to explore their thoughts and feelings. Whether it be overcoming past traumas, managing anxiety and depression, or simply improving communication skills, therapy can be a powerful tool for positive change.

I’m eager to work with LGBTQIA folks, People of Color, immigrants, and folks with varying abilities.

My approach to therapy is centered around empathy and collaboration. I work closely with my clients to develop personalized treatment plans tailored to their unique needs and goals. I believe that therapy should be an active and engaging process, and I strive to provide a safe and supportive space for my clients to explore their innermost thoughts and feelings. My ultimate goal as a psychotherapist is to empower my clients to take control of their mental health and well-being. Through compassion, guidance, and support, I hope to help my clients achieve the happy and fulfilling lives they deserve.

I am available to conduct a gender evaluation in order to write a referral letter for hormones or transgender surgery. Thescheduling of a gender evaluation does not guarantee that I will write a referral letter for you; your readiness for
transitioning is something that we will discuss together during your evaluation.

I’m Kylie Peele, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker based in North Carolina - here to guide you through the stress, sadness, joy, anxiety, and excitement life can bring. I truly care about my patients’ well-being and dedicate myself to continuing my education to continue to support you in the most up to date, effective way possible. Since 2018, I have provided several specialized therapeutic services to oppressed individuals including those experiencing homelessness, LGBTQIA+, those experiencing serious persistent mental illness, foster families, and individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. 

 I have a personal vested interest in those with chronic illness, LGBTQIA+, and those involved in the kink/BDSM and/or ethically non-monogamous communities, as I am also a part of those communities! I think serving the communities you are involved in is one of the best ways to shed light on communities that may often not be a part of "common" culture.  

 I have served individuals in several settings, all of which have taught me something different about the social work profession and the individuals involved in those settings. I have worked in group homes, day work programs, medical and mental health hospital facilities, the prison system, and in community mental health settings. My personal experiences in mental health and the medical field also inform my approach to coping with mental health and chronic illness issues for my clients. Though I have experience in the kink and the ENM worlds, I think you are the expert in your life and relationships, so I encourage autonomy while providing alternative views to ensure your safety within your relationships.  

 I have been married for 5 years to a wonderful husband. We have 2 chosen fur babies, Eric and Butters, who I guarantee will make an appearance at least once in your sessions. My husband and I practice ethical non-monogamy and have been involved in our local kink scene since much before we were married. I believe sexuality is ever evolving for most people, me included. In my free time, I love making funny vinyl t-shirts and stickers, cuddling with my kitties, listening to true crime podcasts, and watching trashy reality tv and true crime documentaries.   

 Unlike "traditional" or more old school therapy, I think my self-disclosure sometimes encourages and provides support to my clients. I will not share enough that you think we are besties, but I think self-disclosure does have a place in therapy if it helps my clients. And since I have the desire to help my own community, self-disclosure is mandatory. Because of this unique relationship, I know there are chances to see each other in the "real world", and I hope you know I would never out you by saying hello in the community without you first saying hello to protect your privacy.
