Hello! I am Dr. Nikkita Jackson, a seasoned clinician licensed in Ohio with extensive experience building therapeutic partnerships and collaborative alliances. As a young child, I always desired to help others which sparked my desire to become a social worker/clinician. I obtained my bachelors, masters, and doctorate in social work and I am an independently licensed social worker in the state of Ohio. My approach is to meet clients where they are, and to empower them to make the necessary changes needed to live a wholesome life. My goal is to empower you and to support you on your journey and to remind you that you can make it against the odds. Those odds are any obstacles or situations that may hinder your progress. In my practice, I embrace a comprehensive approach that customizes methods to fit the unique needs of my clients. To name a few, I use methods such as: trauma informed care, reality therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy, strengths based therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, and family conflict resolution. I understand that taking this step to seek therapy and to ask for help can bring about mixed emotions. I am here to support you on this path and to take those steps with you as you transition to your best self. Beyond sessions, I enjoy singing, preparing vegan meals, spending time with my love ones, and reading.

Graduating in 2012, I have met with many hundreds of individuals, couples and families using a myriad of different methodologies. What I have learned is that the best way to help a client is to let go of anything you ever learned and connect with the person individual in front of you, not as a client but as a person. In addition, I take a highly biased and slanted bent towards your strengths and qualities with an unhidden agenda of manifesting your individual core beauty. In other words, this is a highly individual journey and the key to enjoying it is through highly colored lenses of your inexhaustible array of qualities. All methodology and techniques fall to the wayside.
