Nia Hamilton-Ibu, LCSW

I value supporting people through mind-body-spirit therapeutic approaches. Incorporating one’s cultural as well as community resources is essential to support healing. Acknowledging the whole self to address how stress and trauma impact the body and spirit aids in fostering wellness.

My practice is informed by an acceptance and compassion, social justice, anti-oppression, trauma focused and collaborative lens.

In my 17+ years of providing therapy, I am honored to help people recognize and enhance their own internal strengths, resiliency and ability to heal.
