Dr. Kai Gunty



Owner, Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist, AAMFT Supervisor Candidate

Note that Dr. Kai is not currently taking clients at this time.

See more about my work at my website. The right support for children and families can bolster resilience and allow them to thrive no matter what challenge they face. I use a strengths-based approach to use what already works well for a child or within a family system as a foundation for further growth and development.
