Credentials and Professional Experience
Keynia is a trained marriage and family therapist with a Master of Arts in Marriage & Family Therapy from Northcentral University; a Bachelor of Science degree from Ball State University which includes a double minor in Journalism and Marketing; and Special Education Certification from University of Georgia.
Keynia provides therapeutic support to individuals, couples, and families and has worked in community- based settings, in-patient acute hospitalization settings, as well as private practice. Her experience includes over 19 years of marriage that informs her work with couples; facilitating couples/parenting workshops and trainings; 15 years as a special education teacher of students with Autism, Asperger’s, ADHD, Emotional Behavior Disorder, Down’s Syndrome and a variety of developmental disabilities; co-hosting the radio show, The Parenting Handbook Live, that aired bi-weekly on iCandy Radio, WICR 92.9FM in Goldsboro, NC; as well as community outreach which allows her the ability to relate to every kind of person and meet them right where they are.
Keynia uses an eclectic approach to therapy that involves ongoing connection, listening, and probing to determine the next best step toward meeting the client’s desired outcomes. She enjoys helping couples experience greater connection, intimacy, communication, and ways of relating by learning strategies to navigate through the destructive cycles that create frustration for them. Her approach with families helps to empower them to manage their challenges with parenting, life cycle changes, and other life stressors. Because of her training and experience she effectively helps to improve the behaviors of children as young as three years old as she consults with these families to help them develop the skills needed to manage their challenges as well as live an overall improved quality of life. She is acquainted with situations that often bring clients to therapy seeking help, and is committed to leading them toward their better days and relief.
