FreEtta Nelson-Hemphill

(LCSW)

About Me

Hello! I am so glad that you reached out to us for help. I am FreEtta Nelson-Hemphill, and I am a Licensed Certified Social Worker. Most of my clients refer to me as "Fritzi". You are welcome to do so also!

I have worked with many individuals with diverse cultural identities and backgrounds over the past 20 years. My job is to help you become successful in any problem areas that have come up for you at this point in your life. To do this, I will spend time listening to you and asking questions in order to get a "picture" of your life. I want to understand what is working and what is not. After we do this, we can take the information that you have given me and establish your therapy goals.

Psychotherapy has both benefits and risks. It requires an investment of time and energy in order to make your process successful. I will, most often, approach our work together from a Cognitive Behavioral Treatment perspective. I believe: Oh Yeah! You can handle this! When you are able to those adjust or restructure those thought patterns and behavior (s) that are precipitating and maintaining the problem area(s), you will see the change you desire.

I look forward to meeting you in this season of your journey.

I came to find Freetta, after a bad experience with a previous counselor. I took my time in searching, I am big in researching, and I cannot explain it, but there was something about her energy that I felt through simply seeing her photo, and knew her aura was of good. Boy, was I right and glad I was too lol! She has been really attentive, patient, and ensures she is understanding you, along with providing you with tools that may provide some insight into your personal journey. Thankful to have come across her.

She was spot on with me in the very first session! I see great things developing ahead and I am so excited to embark on this journey to a better me! Being matched with Fritzi was divine intervention.
