MEET YOUR FACILITATORS:
Hello there! I am Nikita, and I’m truly grateful for this opportunity to serve with Self-Reclaimed. I have a Bachelor of Finance & Public Health and am currently pursuing my 200-HR RYT Certification. As a Care Guide & Reclamation Coach, I work directly with the members of SR’s "Reclaim Your Story" program who have been directly/indirectly impacted by SA + DV, meeting with them 1:1 to support their individual healing journeys.
As I continue my own healing journey, I am honored to walk alongside our members. As a Tobacco Treatment Specialist, I’ve worked with adults in inpatient, outpatient, & digital settings, meeting them where they’re at & partnering with them to achieve their personal goals. I love helping people take small steps that ripple into bigger changes over time.
I became a coach to support & empower people to reclaim the lives they deserve. I strongly believe that as we heal within ourselves, we develop the capacity to help others heal, so that together, we can heal as a community. SA & DV can feel isolating. I believe that by bringing together survivors, allies, loved ones, and other change advocates, that we are stronger, and can create powerful & meaningful change in our world. A world which celebrates survivors & advocates for safer and kinder communities that are free of SA & DV. A world that fosters judgment-free environments to support healing & promote healthy change for all people.
