Fantanesh Angaw

LCSW

About Me

I am a graduate from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, class of 2016. I am originally from East Africa, Ethiopia, and I am a Las Vegas/California resident. I absolutely love working with people and helping my clients to reach their fullest potential of happiness and develop a mindset made with an abundance of resiliency.

My approach in therapy is always, "meet the client where he/she is at." I am a great listener, I am gentle, and have been told many times, "Your voice is so calming." I do my best to always provide my clients the most sincere and professional information about mental health, emotional problems, interpersonal relationship problems, and grieve and loss issues, life-adjustment issues, addictions, ect. Additionally, I am very experienced in working with adults (18 years and older) for issues with depression, anxiety, rapid mood swings, and interpersonal relationships. I also am experienced in substance abuse disorders and trauma focused therapies.

I strive to work hard in my job and I am most confident in my abilities to empower and motivate my clients. Being well-rounded in therapy is why I believe my clients continue to return in therapy.
