About My Clients
I specialize in trauma, identity, and intersectionality. The communities I support include, but are not limited but are not limited to: BIPOC (Black, indigenous, and people of color), LGBTQAI+, TGNC, creative spirits, introverts, highly sensitive people, empaths, students, and trauma survivors. I also have several years of experience in mental health and substance use disorders.
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. I invite you to visit my website (amaninia.com) to learn more about me and my practice.
