About  Nitasha Strait

Welcome to your journey to finding the right therapist! Relationships are so rewarding, yet really hard sometimes. Whether you are in a monogamous or poly relationship or looking for therapy for your family, you are seeking a therapist because you want things to be better. You want to learn how to be a great partner, you want your relationship(s) to be as rewarding as possible, you want to feel invigorated when you think of your life with your partner(s) or family. If this sounds like you and you're married, then marriage counseling is for you. If this sounds like you and you are with someone that you are devoted to or want to take the step to marriage, then couples counseling or premarital counseling is for you. Or, maybe you've hit a rocky road and there has been infidelity in your relationship. Having a therapist guide you through the difficult conversations that are geared toward healing and connection is exactly what I do. You will get through this. 

I can help you identify what your relationship pyramid (much like a food pyramid) is made up of. A solid base should consist of trust, compassion, sensuality, and communication. From there, you can build connections, empathy, lust, and feel like you're building something together. You're here because you believe one or more of these things is missing in your relationship(s). The work we do together will help you (re)build and balance all of the necessary tools in your relationship pyramid to get in contact with deeper levels of love, joy, happiness, and fun in your relationship(s). 

Together in marriage counseling, couples counseling, premarital counseling, or family therapy, we will identify healthy patterns that are your strengths as individuals, as partners, and as family members. We will also uncover some unhealthy cycles that keep you stuck in what you're unhappy with and preventing you from getting what you want together. You'll gain awareness of the barriers that feed these unhealthy cycles. We'll create a space for healing as many of the barriers that exist for couples and families are old wounds that never truly went away. With courage, vulnerability, and transparency you will get to where you want to be. 

With a master's in Marriage and Family Therapy and another master's in Sex Education and certification in Sex Therapy, my work is all-encompassing. There is no topic that is too large or off-limits. I believe that every part of you as an individual is a part of you as a partner or family member, and therefore part of the relationship(s) you find yourself in. Some counseling sessions will be spent on individual stories and others will be spent working with the couple or family as a whole. Each of you brings something unique to the table. To better understand one another and grow together, each person in the relationship needs to be able to hear just how special the other person is. Through understanding comes openness for change. Through change comes anything you can imagine! 

I'm honored that you have taken the time to read this far and get to know me as a therapist. Now, let me return the favor and join in your journey of healing, growth, and transformation to a better you, better relationship!
