About Me

My name is Dr. Nikita Hay and I am a licensed clinical psychologist in the state of Hawai'i. Welcome and thank you for taking time to learn more about the services I can provide for you and your family. I have treated children, adolescents, and adults for several years in a variety of settings, including out-patient, residential, as well as locked facilities. This means that I have experience working with a broad range of individuals who have diverse clinical issues such as stress-related disorders, trauma-related disorders, mood disorders, eating disorders, and personality disorders.

As a clinician, I typically approach therapeutic treatment with a person-centered, holistic style. I do my best to recognize where you are right now and provide support so you can reach your desired purpose. My passion for rehabilitation began at an early age as I was raised with loved ones who battled mental illness. Therefore, I know firsthand that the path to mental health can be challenging and exasperating. Nonetheless, please know that when you are ready to take the first steps toward change, I am here to assist you.

If you choose to begin working together, you may find the following information helpful. I am available for messaging, live chat, phone, and video sessions, based on your preference. I check messages several times throughout the day, everyday, between the hours of 8am and 8pm HST. I may not be able to respond to your messages right away, but I typically respond within 24 hours. I look forward to working with you.

I apologize for any inconvenience, but I am not currently accepting new subscribers.

Written by M.A. on Aug 14, 2019 after counseling with Nikita for 4 months

Dr. Hay is extremely helpful and kind. She helps me to understand things in a perspective that is helping me to move forward. I’m really grateful to know I have her support and can depend on her to share her wisdom with me.

Nikita is very kind, and I can trust her with anything I share with her.

Written by M.E. on Jun 14, 2019 after counseling with Nikita for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and coping with life changes

I really love Dr. Hay. Not only is she responsive, and timely in the responses, she’s also extremely knowledgeable and supportive as my counselor. I would highly recommend her if you are looking to work on any emotional disorders. She helps me with my anxiety issues and her quick responses I think are strategic in helping me not panic while I wait to hear from her. Highly recommend.

I've only ever spoken to a professional in person so I was skeptical of trying this. But Dr. Hay is there whenever I need to get something off my chest as well as to provide advice or just help me answer my own questions. She helps me put things into perspective when I may be too far into my head. My experience has been great and I can feel the help and support making positive changes in my journey.

Dr Hay is very understanding and supportive. I would certainly recommend her and Better Help to others. In the space of only a couple of weeks, I have managed to curb my anxiety and talk to somebody trusting about the issues causing my relationships to breakdown with my partner and family. Best thing is I can write what I'm thinking at any time and get it out of my head so I'm not stressing anymore. It is a huge help and relief to have the counselor in my pocket whenever needed
