    Moving Forward Therapy and Beyond

    Have you ever needed someone to talk with, help you with something, looking for advice, seeking comfort, or possible understanding? So, naturally you turn to your family, friends, love ones, only to get unsolicited advice, judgement, and lack of empathy? That is because, even though their intention is to help you, they are a biased party that believes they have your best interest at heart. However, what they believe is best for you usually does not align with what you think is best for you. They are doing what family, friends, and love ones do- for they are not Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) professionals.

    Our Mission

    Therapy is not for the weak, but for the COURAGEOUS which ask for help! As an expert in science and art, you will be getting technical clinical proficiency in relationships with systemic knowledge into a variety of situations through non-bias, non judgement, empathic resolution without advice, guiding you to better insight and healing from your troubles.

    At Moving Forward Therapy and Beyond, our belief is quality over quantity. In other words, you are not a just a number, with an agency trying to meet a quota. Instead, you are an individual, couple, family unit in which deserves our individual attention to give you the best quality care you deserve. Contact MFT Beyond for your free consultation today.

    Have you ever experienced “Paula” therapy before? What is “Paula” therapy you might ask?

    “Paula” therapy is where we find the right therapy style for you. My authentic approach gives clients the tools they need. I use a direct approach to get clients unique solutions. I pride myself on being authentically me and bringing out an authentic version of you. I do believe the stigma of mental health and therapy makes it appear as a weakness or reinforces “keep it in the family” secrets and situations. Yet through “Paula” therapy I provide space for clients to courageously seek help that is confidential, professional, and validating. This space is moving Forward Therapy and Beyond! This is the space to be authentically you!

    Kerri Campbell, MS, Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern

    Life is a journey and sometimes adjusting to changes and challenges in our lives can be overwhelming. Sometimes we just need a listening ear, a safe place to be heard and to be given the support needed for that moment and beyond. My role as your counselor is to help you build connections within yourself and others around you. By allowing you the opportunity to be heard, I create an atmosphere for a safe environment with a non-judgemental space. I approach therapy in a direct way to challenge clients to meet their potential and meet their goals. I promote honesty for yourself to create open communication and direction to change in a positive way.

    I received my Masters of Science in Mental Health Counseling from Nova Southeastern University in Florida and my Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of the West Indies in Jamaica. My background and multicultural experiences has given me the opportunity to work in a diverse range of settings that includes government agencies, community based in -home individual and family therapy, private practice and employee assistance programs with individuals, families and children. I have extensive experience working with military personal and family related issues and specialization with eating disorders, mood disorders, parenting and stress and anger management.

    My goal as your counselor is to provide a multicultural perspective and support needed on your life journey to assist you with adjusting to changes in order to enjoy a more fulfilling and flourishing life. Counseling can assist you with making changes and improvements in your life and learn coping strategies to deal with your past and your present so you can continue your life journey as a healthier and happier individual, and I am here to help you.

    Hannah McKinnies, MS, LMFT-Associate

    Hannah understands that people have different experiences that shape who they become in their lives, while these experiences are the results of some choices made, many of them may be from patterns that have been passed down generationally that they may not have control over. Hannah understands that people may not know how to change their lives if they are functioning under the way they have always been taught; recognizing these patterns of behavior can take courage and that learning what is in their control and what is out of their control can help them see what they want to be different.

    Hannah wants to work with clients an give them “tools” for their toolbox. Hannah believes that patterns of behavior are learned and that behavior is a form of communication. She works with clients on topics that will improve how they interact in their relationships. Hannah works with individuals, couples, and families.

    Hannah’s goal is for clients who speak to her feel heard and that they have someone who is willing to meet them where they are in that moment. Hannah works from a systemic therapist point of view, and believes that the relationships have an impact on their current functioning and symptoms.

    Meet Our Student Interns

    As the need for mental health services increases, students are rising to the challenge to become mental health providers. In obtaining their mental health master’s degrees, these students require hands-on experience within the field to practice their specialty. Student Interns at Moving Forward Therapy and Beyond are working toward completing their master’s degree in the mental health field. Overall, you receive some additional benefits by going with a Student Intern.

    • Student Interns will be under direct supervision from Moving Forward Therapy and Beyond and their faculty supervision within their school.
    • Additionally, they will be receiving input from others within the field, including clinicians, students, faculty, etc.
    • You are helping them gain real-world clinical experience in their profession to fill the mental health provider shortage.
    • Often, they will have smaller caseloads to handle, allowing for more individualized care.
    • As they are gaining experience and don’t have years of practice, they are willing to ask questions and use various resources at their disposal.
    • They will be utilizing the latest research and evidence-based practices in the field.
    • As they have completed most of their schoolwork, they are filled with energy and enthusiasm to meet you and provide you with therapy services.
    • Finally, as they are Student Interns, you will receive a reduction in service fees. As these Student Interns also need examples to demonstrate their clinical skills, by electing to be audio/video recorded, you will receive an additional discount towards your therapy services.
