Nyasha Poitier, MS, Licensed Mental Health Counselor

Seeking counseling is very personal and brave. Counseling is a process by which we both work together to identify and work through any issues you bring to our sessions, creating positive change. I believe life obstacles and experiences can be stressful and challenging at times. I believe the client is the expert of their lives; in therapy, I am here to serve as a guide to help you explore your deepest thoughts and feelings while providing you with a safe and non-judgmental space.


Utilizing a collaborative approach (client-centered, cognitive behavioral therapy, and a holistic approach) together we will explore your options and create individualized goals. I will be there to support and empower you to make positive changes, overcome and cope with anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, loss/grief, substance abuse issues, childhood abuse and trauma. I also utilize expressive arts in therapy to process your thoughts and feelings.


I want you to remember that you are not alone and help is available. We will work together on achieving your individual goals and a sense of peace and well-being.


My education includes a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a Master’s of Science Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of North Florida.

Meet Nyasha (Yah-Sha)

As a Jacksonville native, I am overjoyed to be a part of the constant change that happens every day in the city. I spend most of my days creating positive change, writing poetry, and spending time with my family and friends. Days filled with laughter, dance, and music are the best!

"Don't forget to be kind to yourself."
