Hello Wonderful, I Am so Glad You Are Here!
... because you were born to THrive
I am a THrive practitioner. I created THrive using a repertoire of embodied practices ranging from somatic dance waves, IONA, healing racial adversities and intergenerational /historical, internalized racial trauma oppression, and black wellness.
I work with Black/ Brown women & BIPOC youth to learn how to embrace THriving as an authentic way of being. THrive is NOT therapy, because you are not difficult, “broken, defective,” or damaged goods. “You are protective- something has happened to you. There is a difference.” (Ressma Menakem)
What People are Saying
"Working with Keita was a beautiful experience... During my session, things came up from my past that totally related to my current life experience. Keita stayed present with me as a guide and helped me as I found clarity in what I needed as I journeyed through self- awareness to a place of rejuvenation. Much love to you Keita!"
“As a clinician myself in the area it can be hard to find the right connection when my own need for therapy arises. Wow, I felt like I hit the jackpot on our first session. Keita takes the time to check in on all levels, cognitively, emotionally, energetically and this makes the work fast and profound. I would recommend her to my closest family and friends and at times I have.”
Highly recommend working with Keita! The educational, facilitated group work that Keita led, that I was a part of some years ago, has stayed with me in profound ways. Her work has so positively influenced my teaching, my friendships and my community work. Thank you for the work you do in the world, Keita!
As a black man today I am subjected to dysfunctional family dynamics and systematic racism. … you made me aware of family toxicity and how specific behaviors originated from slavery .Learning this feels as if a big weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Definitely feels like I’m taking the right steps to heal and love myself…
Working with Keita Whitten helps me as a black man because it’s not the typical Approach to counseling and psychiatry that you go through in white society. I’m not being prescribed pills or put into any system. It feels good to be able to talk to someone that looks like me and who also has young black sons like me. Thank you Sister Keita!~
