Nyasha Poitier, MS, Licensed Mental Health Counselor
Seeking counseling is very personal and brave. Counseling is a process by which we both work together to identify and work through any issues you bring to our sessions, creating positive change. I believe life obstacles and experiences can be stressful and challenging at times. I believe the client is the expert of their lives; in therapy, I am here to serve as a guide to help you explore your deepest thoughts and feelings while providing you with a safe and non-judgmental space.
Utilizing a collaborative approach (client-centered, cognitive behavioral therapy, and a holistic approach) together we will explore your options and create individualized goals. I will be there to support and empower you to make positive changes, overcome and cope with anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, loss/grief, substance abuse issues, childhood abuse and trauma. I also utilize expressive arts in therapy to process your thoughts and feelings.
I want you to remember that you are not alone and help is available. We will work together on achieving your individual goals and a sense of peace and well-being.
My education includes a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a Master’s of Science Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of North Florida.

As a Jacksonville native, I am overjoyed to be a part of the constant change that happens every day in the city. I spend most of my days creating positive change, writing poetry, and spending time with my family and friends. Days filled with laughter, dance, and music are the best!
