NNEKA SYMISTER, LCSW

 

Thank for you taking the time to learn more about me and my services.

As I was growing up,  I realized that it was easy for people to share their stories with me, knowing that I would empathize  and help if I could. As a result, I was drawn to social services and therapy at an early age. A passion that has led me to becoming an expert in my field.

My approach to therapy is client centered. I believe that we all have the ablity to control the way we think, behave and interact with others.  Not only do we decide the type of life we want, we also decide how we want to show up in the world.

As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), I utilize a wide variety of techniques to assist my clients with the issues that confront them including, but not limited to, Pmads,  mood disorders , grief and loss, parenting, and overall life stressors.

Some of my methods include cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), interpersonal therapy, client centered, mindfulness, stress management, and meditation.

I have more than a decade of experience working with clients of diverse backgrounds, including  BIPOC and LGBTQIA. I also have an extensive background working with fathers, couples, teens and women who suffer from perinatal diagnoses. 

Everyone deserves to feel good in their bodies both physically and mentally.  No matter your circumstances, you can heal, grow and thrive.

If you are ready to start the work, contact me for a consultation today.
