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!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Kaniecia Mixon. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Kaniecia fosters an open space for comfortable conversation, allowing me to look introspectively at my life and identify areas of need. She helps me develop coping skills to better manage anxiety during this transitionary period in my life. I felt comfortable as if I was just chatting with a friend, and that, itself, makes therapy more accessible and de-stigmatized.

I absolutely love working with Kaniecia. She has been with me since March of 2020 and has been absolutely core to my emotional and mental growth in the past 2 years. She has helped me work through family and relationship issues. I can’t recommend her highly enough

I have had several counseling sessions with Kaniecia, and I can confirm that she is very professional: she has understood my problem fully, and she listened to me carefully every time. Thanks to her advice and activities, I have implemented mindfulness into my daily routine, and I am feeling better.
Highly recommended!
