Emmanuel Nwala

(PhD, LPC)

About Me

I come from a multicultural background and adopt a multicultural mindset in working with clients. I have worked with clients from diverse backgrounds, and clients presenting with different behavioral and mental health problems. I tailor my therapy technique based on client's presenting problem so that I am able to meet the client's needs in therapy. I am experienced in the use of cognitive behavioral therapy, client-centered therapy, motivational interviewing, solution-focused therapy, dialectic behavioral therapy etc. I stay engaged with the client through out therapy process and can change therapy technique once the client and I determine that a previous or current technique isn't very effective. I am licensed as a Licensed Professional Counselor in multiple states at a Master degree level and have been practicing for over 6 years. I have a PhD in Psychology that equipped me with psychological assessments that can be instrumental to mental/behavioral health treatments. I have worked with clients presenting with disorders to include but not limited to: anxiety, depression, adjustment, conduct disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, grief and loss, bipolar, borderline, relationship issues, PTSD, and other personality and clinical disorders . I do not see my client as the problem, I see the presenting struggle as the problem that needed to be resolved. My job throughout therapy process is to help my client reach the goal for coming to therapy.

Working with Emmanuel was great. He helped me a lot with handling stress in work and anxiety issues. I encourage anyone who needs help to trust him to do just that.

Emmanuel has been so helpful in helping me to work through some of my lifelong anxiety as well as burnout following graduate school. He has an incredible knack for understanding what is going on in my head before I do, and for figuring out which tools will be most useful to me. I've appreciated that Emmanuel offered me practical tools that I could use to challenge my anxious and irrational thoughts, and I highly recommend working with him to anyone experiencing similar issues.

It has been really helpful for me to work with Emmanuel on my issues regarding anxiety and fear surrounding relationships. I can already see that my beliefs and patterns are starting to change thanks to the tools he presented to me each week. I can definitely feel that the work we've done has helped me reach a greater sense of calm and confidence.
Emmanuel was able to understand my specific needs and I appreciate very much the level of trust and understanding he built during our sessions. It was a great experience.

Emmanuel has been blessing to me (and subsequently my family) during this season of anxiety and depression. My husband has noticed a marked difference in how I handle stress with our children and communicate to him since starting counseling with Emmanuel. I am connected to my husband and children again. I feel like I have choices again... not a slave to my feelings. I appreciate Emmanuel's prompt and wise responses to my messages and always smiling face when we start a session. I am very thankful for all the tools he is providing me to move forward in a positive way. Thank you, Emmanuel! Words cannot express my gratitude for your time and attention.
