Meet The Founder & Owner
"My purpose is to empower, instill hope, and ultimately help restore our people and community to traditional greatness ."
Hello! My name is Kimesha C. Morris. I'm the Founder & Owner of NIA Counseling & Consulting Services, LLC.
I am a city girl born and raised in Hartford, CT with Jamaican heritage who always had a heart for service. Today, I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology with a Minor in Black studies, a Master’s Degree in Social Work, and I am a PhD candidate ( April 2024).
Prior to starting my Private Practice full time, I practiced at the Institute of Living for a little over 15 years as a Clinician up until 2018 when I was promoted to Director of Social Work and Clinical Supervisor in the Family Resource Center. I also helped establish the Diversity Equity & Inclusion Council at the Institute of Living where I engaged in controversial topics on diversity.
In my Private Practice, I enjoy working collaboratively with individuals, couples, and families. I specialize in treating adolescents, young adults & adults. I also love supporting and pouring into young clinicians who are trying to find their way in this career path. My clinical and research interest involves supporting Black individuals who have experienced racial microaggression and racial trauma; as well as providing consultation on ways clinicians can become aware of and minimize racial microaggression within the clinical encounter with Black clients.
I bring not only over 20 years of academic and vocational experience but also personal experiences to my practice. I understand life is filled with various challenges where you may find yourself wondering how you're going to navigate it all. Having someone assist you through the process and validate your experiences may be just the beginning of your healing. I, along with my team, can assist you through your journey. We provide a safe, judgment free, nurturing environment where you can begin to explore and process your internal world. We have been able to engage and build strong relationships with people from various backgrounds and I welcome you to partner with us on your various needs. We hope to hear from you soon.
Love & Light,
