My name is Ndoumbé (pronounced Noombey or Numbey), I am a Limited-Permit therapist at Haven Mental Health Counseling. I believe that therapy is an emotional journey to self discovery and self growth. By creating a balance of warmth, safety, nurturance, and challenge, my clients are able to get the most out of their therapeutic experience.
My approach to therapy is an integration of person-centered therapy, psychodynamic theory, and attachment theory. I also incorporate a lot of somatic and mindfulness practices into my work.
The combination of these different approaches allow for a holistic understanding of who the client is, how they understand themselves and others, and how they navigate through life in an empathetic and nonjudgmental way.
I earned my Bachelor's degree in Psychology and Sociology at Queens College, and received my Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling and Wellness at NYU Steinhardt.
