OUR HOST

NIKITA BANKS, LCSW

In my past life as Wonder Woman’s stunt double, I struggled to “Have It All!” And it almost cost me my sanity. Trying to be everything to everyone kept me drained and too tired to do anything about it. That was until I admitted I needed help.

With over 5 years in the field of psychotherapy, I am passionate about exceeding your expectations. I aim to increase access to mental health by providing multiple avenues for people of color to get them help they need, to get the life they deserve.

In my former life of saving damsels in distress and solving everyone's problems I created a plethora of problems of my own. With no help in sight, and no idea how to achieve my dreams on my own. I had to admit I needed help.

I am licensed as a psychotherapist who uses the latest evidence based practice methods to help with the reduction of symptoms.

I’m licensed to practice in the states of New York, New Jersey, Georgia and Florida.

HAVE YOU HEARD OUR PODCAST?

Today I am a psychotherapist, coach and the host of the popular podcast Black Therapist Podcast where I talk about my on-going struggle to maintain the things I value most in my life. But it wasn’t always so!

My journey from patient to practitioner was born out of my own struggles to learn to be the master my thoughts, feelings, and emotions.

The goal is to make sure my daily decisions move me towards the life I desire, while constantly building relationships that are aligned with who I am. But more importantly who I am becoming, as I grow soar and change.
