Hello-

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, and a Chemical Dependency Counselor with over 20 years of experience, supervising other counselors and teaching aspiring counseling students.

I work with clients who are managing a variety of psychological, emotional, mental health, family, relationship and spiritual challenges and struggles, providing assistance in learning how to best manage those struggles. I enjoy working with individuals from a holistic perspective to recover from trauma, overcome addictions, and reduce distress from discrimination. It is an honor to walk with individuals on their journey to understanding how their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors can help them to reveal who they truly are inside so that they can realize their goals and dreams.

I use a person-centered approach to therapy as well as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, principles of Motivational Interviewing, Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Acceptance, Commitment Therapy.

I would love the opportunity to work with you, so you can get back to living your best life! I want to instill hope and reignite the belief that your best days are ahead of you!

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Total wellness,
Dr. Nzingha Dalila

Written by G.I. on Aug 04, 2022 after therapy with Nzingha for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

My experience has been great so far.

Written by C.A. on Jul 17, 2022 after therapy with Nzingha for 6 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship issues, family conflicts, and coping with life changes

After each session I feel both affirmed and encouraged to directly address my issues and work towards my goals.

Written by S.E. on Jul 15, 2022 after therapy with Nzingha for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, and stress, anxiety

I’ve only had one session, however we’ve been in contact through the following just as check ups. This is definitely new to me and it’s not a bad thing.

Written by H.A. on Jul 02, 2022 after therapy with Nzingha for 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, eating disorders, parenting issues, self esteem, compassion fatigue, and adhd

Dr. Dalila is absolutely amazing! I was always hesitant about therapy as I haven’t had many great therapists before. But my life has changed exponentially since working with Dr. Dalila and I could not be more grateful for her expertise and support.
She’s so kind, funny, compassionate, and really listens and works to understand you. But more importantly she works to help you understand yourself and grow a confidence within yourself to be able to heal.
15/10 I highly recommend working with her.

I love my therapy experience so far

Written by S.A. on Jun 10, 2022 after therapy with Nzingha for 2 weeks

Dr. Dalila has been extremely helpful thus far. She listens to my concerns and helps me find a way to get past them! I am still a work in progress, but I see her helping me through all my problems!

Written by T.O. on May 28, 2022 after therapy with Nzingha for 4 months on issues concerning relationship issues, self esteem, and adhd

Dr. Dalila is incredibly thoughtful, insightful, and respectful. She provides extensive knowledge and resources for a variety of issues. I particularly like that Dr. Dalila is outcome and action oriented. She provides "homework" in the form of specific actions and activities to help change one's mindset and outcomes.

After only a few sessions, I’m seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. I will be building myself back up with a stronger foundation and I’m glad she is here with me.

I’m excited to start up with her again, she was an awesome help the last time I worked with her

We only had a couple of sessions so far but i feel like she will help me get to where i want to be. Still tryin to get fully comfortable and open about therapy but so far so good. I would recommend her to others.

Written by S.H. on Apr 20, 2022 after therapy with Nzingha for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, anger management, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and coaching

I’m done therapy before and lost confidence in therapy.l until I met Dr. Dalila. Really appreciate her knowledge and expertise. I definitely recommend her to anyone needing therapy.

Written by A.N. on Apr 16, 2022 after therapy with Nzingha for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, career difficulties, and coaching

The respect I have for Dr Dalila is a bit difficult to put into words so I’ll describe her approach instead: She is experienced, thoughtful, calm, consistent, kind, and honest. She responds to messages quickly. She always offers context, science, and solutions. I feel genuine love and concern from her and she expects me to receive and do the work.

I’ve gone to therapy my entire life and never did I think I could connect purely with an online therapist more than anyone I have seen in person.

She’s taught me mindfulness, meditation, purpose, and helped me rescue the trapped, traumatized child that’s been acting out for 20+ years.

I’m short, she’s amazing.

She’s awesome

Written by S.T. on Jan 22, 2022 after therapy with Nzingha for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, bipolar disorder, and coaching

We have gotten off to a good start as I believe it takes several sessions of relaxed, get to know you kind of conversations and sharing on both sides before starting to drill down into the challenges. Dr. Dalila is relaxed, confident, a good listener and sharer. She seems comfortable in peer level conversation as opposed to the "I'm the doctor and we need to start working on your problem" clinical approach without having any sense of context. I very much look forward to our sessions.

Written by B.A. on Dec 17, 2021 after therapy with Nzingha for 1 year and 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, compassion fatigue, and adhd

Dr. Dalila approaches health from both an emotional and spiritual perspective. She is incredibly insightful and intuitive - she has a way of helping me reframe my thoughts without infringing on my autonomy as a person. She gathers her wisdom from so many different traditions and backgrounds but remains grounded in her own unique experiences as a Black woman. She is the best therapist I've ever had - her gentle but firm approach to healing has helped me reconnect with myself. She is incredibly adept at creating safety and trust between her and her clients. I would recommend Dr. Dalila to everyone. The world is a better place with her in it.

Written by D.A. on Jul 22, 2021 after therapy with Nzingha for 11 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and bipolar disorder

I really enjoyed my time working with Dr.Dalila. We had sessions for a few months and I felt better after every session. My job gave free sessions through better help and if I could afford to continue the sessions I would. I recommend her for a lot of different issues.

Written by K.I. on Feb 12, 2021 after therapy with Nzingha for 5 months on issues concerning depression, relationship issues, grief, sleeping disorders, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

Dr. Dalila has been very supportive to me during my time of transition. She has given me the tools to heal and move forward with my life while correcting old thinking patterns that have been playing on repeat for years.

Written by J.E. on Nov 10, 2020 after therapy with Nzingha for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, and anger management

Dr. Dalila has help me in the last two weeks and held me accountable and see that things in my life were sometimes out of my control and she is helping me learn how to help myself. I would recommend her to anyone.
