Description of Counselor/Practice

*Please note that Neshia will be away on leave beginning in November 2020 and will not be responding to messages, accepting new clients or conducting sessions until June 2021. Thanks for your understanding.* 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.
