Ms. Karia has taken additional steps to boost the effectiveness of her practice by obtaining her certification in Level 2 Reiki, an energy-based, holistic healing modality.
As an advocate for education and personal growth, Jamie loves to research, learn, and evolve. Throughout her career as a clinical psychotherapist, she has personally witnessed the full gamut of overwhelming personal struggles and intense inner battles that everyone faces daily. This lover of mindfulness and believer in you reminds you to be unafraid to express your emotions and that you are never alone.
The youthful spirit enjoys life on a deeper level through dance, music, painting, drawing, writing, working toward spiritual enlightenment, positive energy, having fun regularly, volunteering, singing, creating, traveling, embarking on adventures daily, and lovingly posing thought-provoking questions to facilitate growth and healthy conversation. She strives to “shine bright like a diamond”. Being one with nature and animals is everything to her, which is why she so thoroughly enjoys forest bathing and the ocean life. “All things. All times. All ways,” is her main motto in life.
Now, Ms. Karia is tapping into her imagination and leveraging her artistic talents to introduce the exciting world of Bacci and his mom, J’aime, to children, young adults, and their families, guardians, caregivers, and teachers.
