If you feel you are so overwhelmed by your thoughts and emotions getting in the way of you living your best life, I am here to help.
Welcome to my practice! I am Almaz Nigusse-Bland, LCSW. A Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of California providing virtual therapy. I received my undergraduate degree in Psychology from Sonoma State University and my masters degree in Clinical Social Work from University of Pennsylvania School of Social Policy and Practice.
In the last 13 years, I had the privilege of working with individuals in various phases of life and in recent years with adult and aging individuals with memory challenges.
It takes bravery to reach out and I'm glad you're taking a big step toward your healing by searching for a therapist.
“There are only two days in the year that nothing can be done. One is called Yesterday and the other is called Tomorrow. Today is the right day to Love, Believe, Do and mostly Live.” ― Dalai Lama XIV
I am passionate about helping individuals understand their stories and find patterns in their stories to take control over their lives.
In your individual tele-therapy with me, we will take a look at areas of your life that you want to move in a direction you desire and together we will create a plan to get you there. I am honored to be part of this healing and thriving journey by your side. I am committed to helping you with concerns related to:
Trauma, sleep challenges, anxiety, depression, burnout, caregiver burnout, cognitive changes, relationship challenges, self-esteem and life transitions.
I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia allowing me to help you explore sleep patterns that may be impacting your functioning.
With the right tools and interventions customized to your needs, healing is possible. I am committed to hold a safe and open space for you to navigate life’s experiences. I invite you to schedule a free consultation with me.
