About Dr. Nyasio

Over the past several years, I have primarily  worked with couples, trauma survivors  and  those who have been diagnosed with infertility or who are experiencing other postpartum challenges. While I can never pretend to know what it's like to walk in your shoes, I do understand the loneliness and isolation you may feel after experiencing a traumatic event.  I understand how the disappointment, anger, or even jealousy you may experience after unsuccessful attempts to expand your family can have a negative impact on other areas of you life.  Psychotherapy can be an invaluable support as you face these challenges.  You don't have to go it alone.

I graduated from the  University of Rochester with a BA in Psychology n 2003.  I obtained a Masters of Arts in Psychology, Masters of Divinity, and a doctoral of Clinical Psychology from Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, CA in 2011.  I completed my postdoctoral training in PTSD at the Loma Linda VA Medical Center.

Vision

Before beginning graduate school, I always envisioned myself practicing psychology on my terms without being stifled by insurance mandates.  After 7 years of clinical practice in VA hospitals around the country and 7 years of dealing with senseless bureaucracy, I decided to pursue my own passions and open my own clinical practice.   My vision is that those in need of mental health treatment can have a place to heal without restraint. At long last, my practice was born.

Anxiety weighs down the heart, but a good word makes one glad.

Investment

Making the decision to invest in mental health treatment is not one to be taken lightly.  Aside from the financial commitment,  the decision to pursue therapy also involved an emotional cost.  It is not uncommon for people going through treatment to have a reaction to fully experiencing their emotions for the first time. The good news is that most people report experiencing personal growth and gaining valuable insight into their personal situations. 

Due to COVID19, priority will be given to those presenting with symptoms of PTSD/TRAUMA. Other services are offered on a limited basis.
