PSYCHOTHERAPIST, SPEAKER & AUTHOR
HI I'M NIKITA...
I am a reformed super hero turned zen master….
In my former life of saving damsels in distress and solving everyone's problems I created a plethora of problems of my own. With no help in sight, and no idea how to achieve my dreams on my own. I had to admit I needed help.
When I got clear on who I was, and what I really wanted did I admit the life I wasn’t living was the life, I knew deep down inside of me I deserved. I knew I wanted more… more love, happiness, and success. I even had the audacity to say those things out loud for others to hear.
I wasn’t ashamed to have dreams and actively pursue them. But what I was missing was the "know-how" to look fear in the face and do the shit that scares me ANYWAY!
I had to find out what was holding me back and figure out the necessary skills to get what I said I wanted.
