In addition to her extensive experience and training in couples and sex therapy, Nutashia has spent over a decade in the Social Service field, working with both children and their families, helping them to address their desire to better cope with personal and professional stress, acute or chronic illness, anxiety, depression, family conflicts, trauma and life transitions.

Dr. Nutashia Baynes specializes in counseling PTSD, couples therapy & sexual issues. Call (888) 870-1775 to arrange an appointment with her.

Primarily Nutashia believes that there should not be a one-size-fits-all approach to therapy. Nutashia uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), hypnotherapy, aroma therapy, and both traditional/non-traditional locations for therapy sessions to help her clients overcome many of the obstacles they are facing.

Nutashia is a graduate of Argosy University’s Masters of Arts program in Professional Counseling as well as The Florida Sex Therapy Institute where she completed her post Graduate Certification in Sex Therapy.

Nutashia completed a Doctoral Degree in Counseling Studies with Capella University. Nutashia is a member of the American Counseling Association (ACA), American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT), and National Board for Certified Counselors (NCC).

Dr. Baynes is available for appointments at the Schaumburg and Hoffman Estates Illinois offices. She is also available for tele-health online video or phone sessions for Iowa and Nebraska clients.
