About Me

Welcome to my profile. I am so glad you are here and chose courage over comfort in reaching out for help. My name is Kaniecia Mixon and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with about 10 years of experience providing behavioral support and therapy. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, social relationship issues, parenting problems, life changes, anger issues, and ADHD. I also have helped many people who have experienced trauma including physical, sexual, or emotional abuse. I have my B.A. in Psychology and my M.S. in Counseling/Marriage and Family Therapy. Most of my experience has been with individuals and families in crisis stabilization, creating safety plans, identifying and developing healthy coping skills, increasing natural supports, and increasing knowledge and awareness of their struggles. I have provided therapy and behavioral support to individuals 5-19. I have been a Therapeutic Behavioral Services Clinician who provided case management and assisted parents with learning parenting strategies to better manage their child's behaviors. I am currently a Program Supervisor to clinical staff who provide those same therapeutic services to people ages 0-21.

My counseling style is warm, authentic, and collaborative. I believe in treating everyone with respect, compassion, generosity, and meeting them where they are without stigmatizing labels. I believe that everyone knows what is needed for themselves and I aim to walk alongside you in identifying those needs and goals and supporting and holding you accountable to meeting the goals you set. I have a trauma-informed, strengths-based, and eclectic approach which combines person-centered, cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, psychodynamic, motivational interviewing, mindfulness practices, and and any other approaches that are needed. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I enjoy incorporating art, creativity, and play into therapy!

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to journeying with you!

Kaniecia is thoughtful in her responses to my messages. She encourages me to explore my feelings and connections to feelings. She always checks in on me even when I am less diligent with my responses.

Kaniecia has been such a warm and supportive energy for me, and I can’t thank her enough for our time together.

Kaniecia is amazing! It’s like I’m talking to a friend who just has a video, podcast, book or resource for any issue I bring up, so I can learn more about the whys and how’s. She is very supportive and I can tell she cares, even though we have only been talking for a short amount of time. She is very speedy at responding and checks up on me throughout the week to make sure I’m good and staying on task.

Kaniecia is wonderful therapist. I have never been to therapy before and she is really patient and kind in easing me into it. She listens to my concerns and makes me self-reflect with purpose. I highly recommend her!

Kaniecia has guided me through a very dark, grief-filled period of my life by helping me navigate my inner strength. I highly recommend her.
