Hello, I'm Dr. K! I'm so grateful that you are here. Whether you’re looking to free yourself from the grip of stress, dissolve pain, boost your immunity, or get to the root of a dis-ease or illness, I am here to support you along your healing journey. We can focus on a single health issue or several concerns. 


My own journey to wholeness has given me insight into the many challenges one encounters in life. This enables me to bring a high level of empathy, compassion, and a calm presence to all of my clients. I've learned that every present moment can be used as a catalyst for true transformation and healing. My daily practices including "food as medicine", Reiki, Yoga, mindfulness, movement, prayer and mediation have brought about healing on all levels for me and has dramatically changed the trajectory of my life. I am much more peaceful and healthier now than I’ve ever been. I've had the privilege of sharing these holistic practices with others over the years and  many have experienced the same transformations that I did!.


I have over 20 years of healthcare experience serving clients and patients holistically. My integrative-holistic modalities will give you a fresh sense of hope and practical tools you can use to overcome stress and health challenges. The holistic services I provide are all aligned to help you relax, reset and restore and re-awaken to your natural healer within!

Client Testimonials

M. Lovett

Absolutely amazing!. I have not felt so energized since my twenties 😊. This place is awesome. Very serene. Dr Knight is truly wonderful. This is every thing I hoped for restoring this body, mind and spirit.

L. Rozado

I am very pleased with the experience I had with Design and Wellness Center. The website is very educational and the schedule process is so easy. The facility is very clean, organized and peaceful. Dr. Knight is so sweet and professional. She took the time to educate me before and after the Reiki session. I left so in peace and renovated. Thank you Dr. Knight!!

P. Moore

"I have struggled with keeping my blood sugar and blood pressure under control for a long time. Dr. Knights' training and coaching helped me realize that much of this was due to my emotional stress.  Dr. Knight introduced me to meditation, Reiki, breathwork and helped me establish a plan and better eating habits and it has helped me so much. I now feel so much more in control of my stress.  My blood sugars have gone down tremendously too. The last time I visited my doctor, my labs were much better."

J. Lewis

"Due to a long history of high blood pressure and diabetes my kidneys failed. I had to go on dialysis. This was a very uncertain time in my life. I was referred to Dr. Knight by my physician. Dr. Knight set up a spiritual life coaching plan with me to lessen my stress and to take control over my health and to reprioritize time for spiritual self-care. Dr. Knight's extensive nursing knowledge has helped me learn not only how to manage my chronic diseases but she takes into account the holistic healing of her clients. This is really valuable considering I'm a very spiritual person who needed encouragement from someone with a deep level of empathy and compassion. That's Dr. Knight all the way." 

R. M.-Columbia

"I've been practicing yoga for several years, but mainly focused on the physical part. I was introduced to Reiki, Restorative Yoga and Yin Yoga by Dr. Knight and sessions have helped me reduce my stress and anxiety tremendously and I also am more in-tune with my spiritual side. Physically, I am stronger than before, and mentally, I've become more resilient. Yoga and Reiki help me relieve my stress so that I can be centered and clear headed. I highly recommend the Yoga & Reiki sessions".
