I am passionate about creating a safe space for individuals to share their concerns, fears, and challenges where they will find care, compassion, and a non-judgmental response that will validate their feelings, while empowering them to improve their lives. This is what I offer to everyone who I work with.

I am a psychotherapist with experience with issues such as depression, anxiety, low self esteem, past trauma, relationship challenges, and addictions. My counseling style is warm, down to earth, and interactive. I use a variety of therapy modalities that include person centered therapy, motivational therapy, solution focused and cognitive behavioral therapy, and psychodynamic therapy. When working with you, I will utilize an individualized approach that will bring you closer to the goals that you have set for yourself.

Nekia is amazing. Her approach is very interactive, she really listens and reflects back in a way that is validating and supportive. I can't recommend her enough.

Written by V.I. on Jul 27, 2020 after counseling with Nekia for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, career difficulties, bipolar disorder, coping with life changes, coaching, compassion fatigue, and adhd

Nekia is forthright, kind, appreciative and receiving. I had a previous therapist and decided to look for a new one because our relationship wasn't working out. Nekia was suggested to me and we've been together for six months during an especially difficult time for me in general, made Harder by the pandemic. I find it is exceptionally comforting in that she really practices self-discipline by listening to everything I'm saying, brain dumping, and giving me non-judgmental supportive advice and also the space I need in order to work out the myriad of concerns that I am dealing with at this time. In essence I would highly recommend Nekia for her empathy, her judgment, her listening and her sensitivity to how she responds to your situation, and particularly her choice of language. The last, her choice of language, is particularly important to me because on occasion people will use a word that may or may not be correct for the situation and she considers her responses with kindness and empathy with the goal of helping you help yourself. I would highly recommend.

I’ve had a few sessions so far with Nekia. She’s proactive in her sessions and truly shows compassion when listening. I feel confident in her guidance and her ability to create a safe space.

Nekia White is a very thoughtful and patient counselor. She is good at providing other ways to look at a situation, and shares great tools to use to keep negative thoughts at bay.
