Nickeisha Clarke (She/Her)

Accepting Clients

I am a Licensed Psychologist with over 13 years experience providing therapy and comprehensive evaluations to children and adults.

Clinical Psychologist in Brandon, FL

About My Clients

In my practice, I am dedicated to creating a supportive and transformative space for individuals who are grappling with the dual challenges of anxiety and depression. I work with clients who may be using maladaptive behaviors as a coping mechanism to deal with their inner turmoil. If you find yourself turning to habits that provide short-term relief but know deep down they contribute to a cycle of distress, I am here to guide you towards healthier strategies for managing your emotions.

My Background and Approach

My practice is a sanctuary where empathy and clinical expertise converge, providing you with a space to safely address the underlying factors contributing to your distress. We will delve into the reasons behind your coping mechanisms, gaining insight into their function while acknowledging the need for more adaptive strategies. Utilizing evidence-based methods that have been scientifically validated to enhance functioning, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), we will collaboratively forge a path to resilience and recovery. For instance, we will work on cognitive restructuring to challenge and change unhelpful thought patterns, emotion regulation to better manage and respond to intense feelings, and behavioral activation to increase with meaningful activities. By integrating these proven strategies, we aim to cultivate a sense of mastery and hope.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As a psychologist, my values are deeply rooted in the commitment to assist others on their path to healing and personal growth. I recognize the profound struggle that comes with navigating the complexities of mental and emotional distress, and I am dedicated to providing a supportive environment where individuals can explore their experiences and develop the skills necessary for overcoming their challenges. Central to my practice is an unwavering support for minority groups, including LGBTQIA+ individuals and those advocating for racial equality, such as the Black Lives Matter movement. I believe in the importance of creating an inclusive and affirming space where clients from diverse backgrounds can feel seen, heard, and understood. My approach is culturally sensitive and informed by the knowledge that each person's identity and experiences significantly shape their perspective and well-being.
