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.

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!
