Nakia Thigpen

(LCSW, LCAC)

About Me

I am a licensed clinical social worker and clinical addictions counselor licensed in Indiana with over 15 years of experience working as an individual and family therapist. I have worked with individuals living with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, family issues, parenting problems, and addictions. I have also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is relaxed, inviting, and interactive. I have a strong belief that everyone possess inherent skills and strengths to overcome challenges, therefore you will always be treated with dignity and respect. My approach is warm and combines cognitive-behavioral, dialectic-behavioral, psychodynamic, and strength’s based counseling. We will partner to develop interventions and a treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

I am excited that you have decided to invest in yourself and look forward to working with you through this change process!

Reviews

Written by A.S. on Jul 27, 2020 after counseling with Nakia for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, coaching, and compassion fatigue

Nakia has been a true gem in my life. I enjoy her because she allows me to be transparent and vulnerable with all of my thoughts. She aids me in moving forward to get out of these low places. She genuinely listens to me and my thoughts.
