Dragonfly Transitions is excited to welcome Kalia Feldman-Klein, MS as a therapist for Dragonfly's Ashland Campus. Kalia engages with clients from a humanistic approach and works from a trauma-informed care perspective. She frequently employs Internal Family Systems and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and strives to build a nurturing therapeutic alliance founded on genuineness, compassion and empathy. Prior to joining Dragonfly, she developed clinical experience in community mental health settings and at the SOU Student Health and Wellness Center.
Kalia grew up in California and lived in New York and Colorado before making her home in Ashland. In her undergraduate studies at Bard College, she double majored in Religious Studies and Dance, with a concentration in Environmental Studies. After spending time working on organic farms and leading youth in wilderness travel and environmental conservation projects, Kalia realized her true passion was working closely with people, and she returned to school to get her Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Southern Oregon University.
Kalia loves experiencing new places and cultures and has traveled extensively in Europe, Asia, and Central and South America. In her free time, Kalia enjoys gardening, skiing, doing yoga, dancing, and spending time adventuring throughout Southern Oregon with her dog and family.
