Charles Rucker’s life has been nothing short of steady flow of miracles, challenges, lessons and most importantly, accomplishments. He’s living proof there’s almost no obstacle that can’t be overcome. “What I’ve learned is the importance of God and having balance within your body, mind and soul. After enduring so much in my life, I have a deeper understanding of what it means to fight and to overcome. I’ve learned the importance of meditation, therapy and recovery and putting faith over fear in one’s life. That’s why we created Ruck Mentality as a place where we can all connect, build and uplift one another.”
Fitness is more than making you strong. It builds confidence and mood, supports overall wellness, boosts immunity and helps fight aging.
Good nutrition can help you feel better inside and out. When you feed your body with proper nutrition, you feed your mind and get a natural lift in mood, energy and your health.
Never underestimate the importance of a positive mind. Your brain is the neurocenter for every function in your body. When it’s off balance, it can influence and affect every aspect of your life. Ruck Mentality takes this into account to help get you and keep you on a path of positivity. Life’s a journey. Make it the best one.
Nakia Thomas, Therapist
I am a systemically trained Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (AMFT), specializing in individual, couple, premarital, family, and blended family therapy. My approach is direct, relational, intimacy driven, and I use a blend of experiences, techniques, skills, and training to personalize and meet the needs of each of my clients. I aim at making sure each and every one of my clients feel comfortable, valued, and heard.
Ever since I was young, I have had a passion for helping others and being a Marriage and Family Therapist fulfills my purpose, aligns with my core beliefs and values. I believe that a lot of the issues that we face in our communities stem from unaddressed trauma, lack of mental health awareness, and an overall environment that is not conducive for healing and growth.
My goal as a therapist is to help heal our communities through bringing mental health awareness and affordable mental health services to our communities, remove the stigma of mental health, help bring an understanding of the connection of body, mind, and spirit, and encourage others to seek professional help.
Relationships are my passion, beginning with the relationship one has with self, the foundation of every relationship.
“When you heal your life, and I heal my life, something AMAZING happens”.
