Nireka believes that we all have a spark within us that can be discovered and cherished. Through warmth, humor, and compassion, she strives to create a welcoming atmosphere for her clients to show up as their authentic selves. Working with challenges like anxiety, depression, trauma recovery, and more, her work is guided by the belief that it can be liberating to listen to your inner voice and truly hear and acknowledge your emotions.


Nireka utilizes strength-based and trauma-informed approaches to help clients move towards psychological balance and wholeness. Her therapeutic approach includes an integration of Acceptance and Commitment therapy (ACT), Cognitive-Behavioral therapy (CBT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), Play therapy, Psychodynamic therapy, and Positive psychotherapy. This approach encourages a deep exploration of the psyche to reconnect with one’s vitality and uniqueness as an individual. She works with children, adolescents, and adults. She is also passionate about providing systemic and empowering care to the BIPOC community.


Healing is a tricky yet beautiful process and you have already taken the first step. Nireka would be honored to work with you in deepening your self-compassion and experiencing more unfiltered joy and calmness.
