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 and phone 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.

Dr. Hay was an immeasurable help to me during my time with her, and the only reason I had to part ways was leaving the state. She listens to you, and works with you through issues- she helped me with perspective and moving through a lot of issues I had and I cannot thank her enough!

Written on Jul 31, 2019 after therapy with Nikita for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, bipolar disorder, 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.
