About Nikita Fernandes

For oppressed people to intentionally cultivate pleasure is an act of resistance – Ingrid LaFleur.

My clinical identity lies in supporting clients looking for culturally sensitive, trauma-informed, poly & kink-friendly, and queer-affirming therapists. My intersecting identities offer me the ability to connect with clients that identify as people of color, immigrants, kink-positive, LGBTQ+, or clients who hold identities altogether different than or similar to my own.

Curiosity and compassion are the cornerstones of what informs my work as a therapist. I also work to create a secure environment in which clients can discuss difficulties with their sexuality, kink, and non-monogamy. I draw on my own firsthand knowledge of navigating kink/sex-positive environments. Additionally, as a person of color myself, I work hard to establish and maintain a safe environment for communities of color.
