At Krista Miles Wellness, my passion lies in helping others improve their emotional health through therapy, yoga, meditation, and mindfulness. I strongly believe in the mind, body, spirit connection; if we are seeking improvements in one area of our lives, we need to assure that we attend to balancing the others as well. As you work towards finding your authentic self, our sessions will help you reconnect with food, body, and self through the philosophy of yoga, mindfulness, and cognitive behavioral therapy.
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Expert Registered Yoga Teacher. When I’m not meeting with my clients or going through a flow, you can find me giving hugs, driving with the windows down and the music up, exploring new places, and playing mom to my multitude of plants. I’m an Enneagram 2 and nothing makes my heart happier than supporting my friends through life endeavors.
I believe that in order for you to feel as comfortable as possible sharing your stories with me in sessions, I also have to be open and willing to share parts of myself. After experiencing bullying, poor self-image and depression, I found the power of yoga as a way to cope with the pain. After graduating from USF with a degree in clinical mental health counseling, I acted on my awareness of the tremendous health powers that yoga has and completed my yoga teacher training with Gwen Hanner, who guided me to combining my two loves - therapy and yoga.
Are you a Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern, or a therapist looking to sharpen your skills? I provide individual and group supervision (in person and online) to therapists that are looking to expand their knowledge in the following areas: yoga for mental health, disordered eating/eating disorders, body image/self esteem, depression, anxiety, life transitions, relationship issues, and spirituality. I am also very well connected in the Tampa Bay community, and can help guide you towards building a genuine professional connection with others. I will create an individualized plan with each supervisee/mentee in order to accomplish exactly what you are looking for!
Are you looking to dive deep in gaining a better relationship with your self, food and body?

I specialize in working with young adult females who are experiencing difficulties in areas such as disordered eating, trauma, sadness, and anxiety. I am here to help you move through the various transitional periods of life, as this is where a lot of difficulties tend to surface. In our sessions, I will guide you in a holistic way to identify problem(s), create goals, and teach you how to attend to the physical, emotional and spiritual symptoms you are experiencing in order to bring a sense of relief. Our sessions are 100% collaborative, and I will never make you talk or work on something you are not ready for. Click here for more information on prices and insurance.
Meditation is the practice of utilizing a technique, such as focusing on the breath, to train attention and awareness of the mind, body and spirit. Meditation can provide many benefits such as slowing down a racing mind, decreasing physical sensations of anxiety, and instilling a sense of calmness and concentration.
