Kim McCarty

We learn by doing, not by talking about doing! My practice is centered around Experiential Therapy which means that I believe in the power of personal experiences to facilitate change. I’m a firm believer that nature and adventure are a catalyst for healing, and I integrate adventure-based therapy sessions with individuals and groups. Through immersive, hands-on activities and techniques, I guide clients in uncovering underlying issues, fostering self-awareness, developing healthier coping mechanisms, breaking free from their comfort zones, building resilience, and discovering new perspectives on life.

As a dedicated Substance and Process Addiction Therapist for over 30 years, I am passionate about helping individuals on their journey to recovery. As a CTRS and Adventure Recovery Coach I specialize in Experiential Therapy while incorporating adventure-based experiences for individuals, groups, and
families. I can “come to you” for sessions.

If you are ready to take the first step towards recovery and embark on a unique therapeutic journey through experiential therapy and adventure-based healing, contact me today to begin your transformative journey towards recovery and discovery. Together, we can navigate the path to a brighter, healthier, and more fulfilling future.

Yoga Coach

Leslie Ivey

I’ve been teaching at Shades since 2019, and I’m a firm believer in the power of mindful movement to not only relax the body but also quiet the mind. Certified in yoga recovery with a focus on addiction and eating disorders, I understand that yoga is a practice that should be tailored to each individual. Throughout my time teaching, I have had the privilege of working with individuals facing various challenges such as lupus, chronic pain, joint reconstruction, and recovery. My goal is to create a welcoming space where everyone can experience the healing benefits of yoga at their own pace.
