Meet Your Therapist
Greetings, I'm Nizammah Ward a licensed mental health counselor and the owner of Pleasantly Balanced Therapy. As a wife, mother, and woman of color, I am passionate about holding space for women experiencing challenges with navigating through life's ups and downs. I specialize in relationship issues, grief and loss, and anxiety. My mission is to educate, encourage, and support our clients in an environment that promotes trust and acceptance.
I am a native of New York but have made Florida my home for the last 20 + years. My family is a melting pot of different cultures (religion, sexuality, ethnicity) and this diversity has allowed me to define my life on my own terms and relate to others in an open-minded and accepting way. I value integrity and inclusivity. These are characteristics that I affirm daily and hope to reflect with all individuals that I serve.
I have 10+ years of experience working with children, adults, and families in crisis. My career began working as a liaison between the court system and families involved in dependency. I went on to provide mental health counseling services to underserved populations at Pinellas County Health Departments (St. Pete, Clearwater, and Largo), prior to opening my own private practice in St. Petersburg, Fl in 2018.
Now that you know a little about me, I can't wait to learn all about your unique experiences. See you in session!
