Kalita D McBride
I’m a licensed Therapist based in the Raleigh, NC area here to be that safe space you can let your walls down in a judgement free zone. I have a passion with helping others and providing comfort. I offer multiple therapeutic approaches meeting you exactly where you are in your self healing journey.
I have experience working with the Veteran population, trauma, depression, anxiety and I am a subject matter expert for Suicide Prevention.
Let’s get at little personal shall we. I am a dog mother and small town girl. My greatest accomplishment was serving in the United State Air Force. I love pizza a little too much and 90s R & B music brings me joy. Peace and love to you all.
Kristen Santiago Darr
Hey everybody! My name is Kristen Darr and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of North Carolina. I have earned my Masters of Social Work with aocus in Mental Health and Substance Abuse from Fayetteville State University. I have worked with families, children, and adults with a wide range of mental health concerns. I enjoy collaborating with people of diverse racial, spiritual, and cultural backgrounds who have experienced mental health concerns. I work with issues related to anger, anxiety, depression, panic, PTSD, self-esteem, and stress. My primary modality is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). However, I am also versed in Motivational Interviewing (MI), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
My goal is to work together to address your concerns, uncover your strengths, and face challenges head on. I understand the value of empowering others to reach their personal goals. I believe that therapy is a collaboration between the client and the therapist. I want to create an environment that is safe, nurturing, and authentic; where the client can be seen with unconditional positive regard and receptiveness. Throughout my therapeutic approach, I have a strong sense of compassion and commitment to helping others. I am a non-judgmental, easy-going, culturally sensitive clinical professional.
When I’m not doing therapy, I enjoy spending time with my husband and goldendoodle, Winston. I also enjoy shopping until I drop and working out.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) who provides therapy to adults. I have over 12 years of experience working in outpatient mental health. Treatment modalities I am trained in are, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy, and Psychiatric Rehabilitation. As a therapist I partner with you to create goals focused on increasing skills to manage and/or decrease symptoms of mental health. I can assist you with learning and strengthening coping skills to improve perception of self, others and the world. There is no right or wrong way to start treatment, just your way. Let me support, empower and motivate you to have the life that you want.
When I am not in the office, you can find me in the gym, or eating a few of my favorite foods: shrimp tacos, shrimp tikka masala or oreo ice cream.
