What do you think is the biggest barrier today for people seeking care?

As moms and women we are often the first to jump in and care for others, and because of this, we do not take the time to pour into ourselves. Therapy is an investment in yourself, helping you develop into the woman, mama, wife, etc you desire to become. Its time to take care of yourself.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I am a super down to earth therapist. I meet you where you are, in your moment. Our goals are determined by what you desire to see as your outcome. Have you caught on yet that this is about YOU... Finding your peace, your center, your point of seeing all the moving pieces fit together.

If there was one thing you wish people knew about the therapy experience who might be hesitant to try it, what would that be?

Therapy is awkward. Its the one relationship where you are asked to be raw, real, open up, knowing that you will one day end that relationship, yet it a beautiful path to healing that sets you free so you can open up, be raw, and real again, in a healthy way that reaffirms the boundaries you desire to set. You can do this. We can do this.

Work History

Hi! I’m Niki Parker. I’m a licensed therapist who offers online mental health counseling to women, parents, kids, and families living in Ohio and Michigan. I help women and mothers manage the challenges of parenting/co-parenting/step-parenting, develop loving boundaries with kids and family, examine “self-hood” inside the role of motherhood, and regain a sense of balance between work and life. And I help young kids grapple with challenging life and family circumstances, digest and evaluate big emotions, and develop self-confidence and self-love. My work is about helping clients feel fulfilled within their chosen lives, strong and stable inside relationships, and confident in who they are and what they do. Since 2009 I’ve specialized in working with adults, teenagers, and children who struggle with anxiety and/or the general sense of overwhelm that comes with our digital, often disconnected world. In contrast to the world’s message that we (mothers especially) must “Have It All Together,” I want to say this: “There is nothing wrong with you if your life doesn’t match the posts you see on social media. Your value as a person is not dependent on meeting the world’s absurd standards for you. You are beautifully made. You are capable. You have an important role to play.” And you deserve to feel these Truths from the depths of your being! The work I do with clients brings this (and more) to the forefront.
