Description of Counselor/Practice

*As of June 2020, Neshia is not accepting new clients.* Thanks for taking the time to read my profile! As a bi-racial and bi-cultural individual with roots in the United States and Samoa, I deeply understand the complexity of navigating multiple cultural identities. After 7+ years in the mental health field, I began my private therapy practice to create a healing, accessible and culturally relevant space for people of color. Currently, I practice as a mental health therapist, end-of-life educator and death companion. My counseling is most effective for people wanting support around grief, bereavement, intergenerational trauma, cultural identity/belonging, and ancestral healing. My clinical approach is informed by my training as an existential-phenomenological practitioner and my time working with sexual assault victims, hospice patients and working-class families. Being a therapist is a profound joy for me and it is my honor to accompany people as they become more resilient, more self-aware and more empowered.
