Kia Weaver Byrd is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and Reiki Practitioner. Kia has a Master’s Degree in Agency Counseling from North Carolina Central University and has worked in community mental health as a practitioner and advocate for over 14 years. She has done energy work for over 6 years. Kia is passionate about supporting individuals on their healing journey with the use of mindful awareness, breath-work, guided meditation, energy work, as well as evidenced based psycho-therapeutic techniques and strategies.
Kia’s perspective is that mental, emotional, and energetic work go hand in hand. She specializes in work with people experiencing symptoms related to trauma, depression, anxiety, and life transition. Kia’s approach to wellness is holistic, strength based, and person centered. Kia’s philosophy is, “we all have the innate ability to heal ourselves with the right tools and support.”
Sessions include options to have traditional counseling, reiki, or a combination of counseling and reiki. The combination session allows the individual to process what they are experiencing, identify healthy coping strategies, identify strengths, and set intentions to align their mindset with healing during the first half of the session. The second half of the session allows the individual to experience energy balancing and removal of blockages via reiki to align their energy with their intention to heal.
When Kia is not working with people one on one, you can find her nurturing her creativity via an all natural personal care line at her business SOULFUL Essentials. There she uses her energy to create aromatherapy body butters, oils, and room sprays infused with essential oils that promote mental and emotional wellness.
