About me

“Connection is the energy that is created between people when they feel seen, heard and valued — when they can give and receive without judgment.” — Brene Brown.

YOU ARE HERE because you desire a deeper connection with yourself and loved ones. You deserve to be seen, heard and valued! I think is it absolutely AMAZING that you are ready to take charge of your life. You should be so proud of yourself! No, seriously! Be proud!

(IMPORTANT: I am NO LONGER OFFERING VIDEO SESSIONS. I am ONLY OFFERING LIVE MESSAGE (TEXTING) and some LIVE PHONE SESSIONS. There’s some life changes for me and these are the accommodations)

Finding a therapist can be exhausting! I hope to help you make the best decision for you. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 10 years experience helping Florida and Mississippi clients find balance, inner strength, and clarity of mind.

I provide an integrative and creative mind-body counseling approach creating a space for clients to feel encouraged, gain insight and self discovery.

The feedback I receive from clients are that they find me very easy to talk to, non judgmental, and caring. Clients share that I offer a safe therapeutic environment where they experience growth and enhancement of coping skills. Clients have also shared that they enjoy my mindfulness and mind-body strategies to help deal with trauma, anxiety, and depression.

My passion is maternal mental health where I help families navigate the shadows of miscarriage, loss, other pregnancy/postpartum, motherhood challenges and other women issues. I am a mother of 2 plus 2 bonus children, a trained Birth and Postpartum Doula and a Perinatal Yoga Guide.

HOW I PRACTICE ON BETTERHELP: I interact with you via all modes of communication; however, I have discovered that clients who primarily participate in video sessions find the therapeutic experience more enriching.

My work hours are Monday-Thursday between 5:30a-430p CST. I do not typically work on the weekends; however, I am available for limited LiveChat sessions on Saturday and will schedule these directly with you. I do not work Sundays as I practice self care.

My "no show policy" indicates that 3 no shows and/or cancellations with less than 24-hours notice will result in discontinuation of services with me.

I am passionate about helping my clients feel connected and secure in exploring their inner world, I would be honored to support your mental wellness journey. I look forward to working with you!!

She listens and puts imput in and just makes you feel better after each session. And I feel very comfortable opening up to her.

Niketa has been an incredible support to me as a navigate a challenging season as a mother, business owner, wife and friend. She asks great questions that help guide me to conclusions which empowers me to make conscious decisions during the week. I also appreciate getting her perspective from a biblical worldview. She is the perfect balance of encouragement and challenge and always has good insight and resources to share. I also love her weekly notes of encouragement! She's been such a blessing to me!
