Shariya Pryor, Intern

Shariya is a Master’s of Family Therapy student at Mercer University’s School of Medicine as well as an intern here at Kaleidoscope Family Therapy. She completed her bachelor’s degree in human development and family studies at The University of Alabama in 2016. She has experience working with children, young adults, parents, and couples dealing with challenging issues throughout their life. 

She ventured into early childhood development where she became a preschool educator. Throughout her teaching she continued to have an urge for understanding family systems and different family dynamics. Through her own life experiences, she has built onto her skills of communication, empathy, and trustworthiness. Shariya has always known she wanted to help people but didn’t know exactly what that road would look like. She found clarity when she began her journey into the mental health field, where her answers to why people become who they are, were soon answered. During this time, she has completed her level 1 Gottman training that will enrich her skills when working with couples. 

What encourages Shariya to be the best therapist she can is the belief that change can happen in any situation. She believes that she is merely an aide in the therapeutic experience and the client is the change agent. Shariya enjoys being open and honest as well as using her creative abilities to unlock the clients’ utmost potential. 

If you are interested in working with Shariya, it will be at a discounted rate of $30 per session
