My Background and Approach

Hello and welcome! My name is Akeera Peterkin (she/her). My clients often describe me as genuine, compassionate, and personable. For me, the therapeutic relationship is an allyship- supporting others through a difficult time while helping them feel heard, understood, and respected. This belief, coupled with my expertise and experience, allow my clients to safely heal and shape their lives. I believe everyone deserves a safe space to feel accepted, grow, and thrive. As an inclusive and affirming clinician, I am committed to helping clients cope with the challenges that often come with humanity, identity, and emotional/mental health. By employing eclectic evidence-based practices and a culturally sensitive approach, I tailor my interventions to meet my clients’ individual needs and goals.
