Coach Nakira Darden, BA, MS, MSpecEd, BSC/MT
I have been working with children and families for over 20 years. During this time, I have taken roles in fields such as Education, Mental Health, Criminal Justice, Social Work, and Drug and Alcohol. While in these roles I have had the opportunity to advocate, counsel, advise, and mentor children, adults, and their families. While working with these families my main goal is/has been to help them reach their highest potential.
While working with the many families I have really enjoyed the shifts and changes that came/come with all the experiences. These experiences created the determination and perseverance needed in order to succeed. Which not only allowed for my families to grow but myself as well. Working in the trenches assured that the families I serve stay focused and motivated in the pursuit to reach their goals and true happiness!
I started Lotus Experience because I wanted to work with individuals on a more intimate level to support them in reaching their highest potential. The space is warm, inviting, comfortable, and welcoming. The staff are professional, patient, and open.
"Nakira Darden is an amazing therapist. My daughter had been seeing her for several years as a therapist and her mobile therapist. She makes you feel that she is rooting for you to succeed. She has guided my daughter in the right direction and was always there for her day or night. Her style of therapy makes you feel so comfortable. My daughter rarely opens up to anyone or talks about her feelings, but Nakira was able to get her out of her shell. We were truly blessed to have had her all these years.”

"When I met Nakira for the first time, we immediately clicked. When it came to my child, I felt like I've known her all my life. She taught me how to become a better parent. I thank God for Nakira. Every time she comes to visit my family, she helps keep them on the right track. She is a true friend, and like family to us.
"Three years ago, I needed services for my nephew. Nakira was the light at the end of my tunnel. She helped me create trust with my nephew who had gone through something very tragic. I'm excited to hear Nakira has gone into business for herself to help in the community. I’m very grateful for her services and you will be in-good hands."
"Nakira was my daughter's Behavioral Therapist for almost two years. She was always very accommodating to our hectic schedule and was always there for my daughter (and us) whenever we needed her. She would return our calls or texts any time of the day, and always tried her best to help us in anyway possible. Nakira is a very resourceful and caring therapist."
