NNikita Banks, LCSW is a Brooklyn Born and raised based psychotherapist who serves in the neighborhood where she was raised. Bedford Stuyvesant now called Stuyvesant Heights will always be Bed-Stuy to her. Returning to her hometown and building a business has always been her plans but life has a way of assisting you when you least expect it.
With assistance from colleagues and encouragement of friends we have been able to be in a rapidly changing, and gentrifying community. With her approach to business being the same “DO or DIE” attitude which has always been the neighborhood’s motto she ha taken an all or nothing approach to tackling stigma of Black mental health.
