Keyara's educational background includes degrees in Human Service and Psychology. She is a member of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy and is currently completing a Master-Level Marriage and Family education at Northcentral University.
Keyara has done extensive work creating behavioral plans for students enrolled in the public school system and alternative education. She also has field experience working with the previously incarcerated to help them reduce their chances of
recidivism. Keyara practices from a holistic and integrative framework to better treat every aspect of clients' lives. She believes in self-empowerment and that all people have the tools needed to improve their quality of life. She takes a direct approach when working with clients using techniques from a CBT, narrative, and experiential lens to help clients realize their potential.
Keyara is passionate about systems theory and will help clients understand their connection with those around them while working through their issues. Keyara has a laid-back attitude but likes to "shake things up" during sessions with family role-playing, hands-on learning, and encouraging family "togetherness" activities. Keyara provides a safe environment for clients to explore complex issues of the self and influence their family, friends, and communities. Keyara is a realist and understands how hard life can be, so you should leave your inhibitions and perfections at the door when working with her.
Working with Keyara allows the freedom to be "real" with yourself and with those around you. Therapy is used to move forward in life. After all, it is not what has happened that should define us; it matters how we handle it. You cannot change the past, but we can all start today to change our future!
