Congratulations!!! You have taken the first step towards improving your mental well-being. Life can be overwhelming and stressful and choosing the right therapist can prove to be a daunting task; for this reason the therapeutic alliance between clinician and client is especially important. In the past, many have perceived therapy to be reserved for those with severe and persistent mental illness, however with unforeseen obstacles and life-altering changes those misconceptions are rapidly shifting. Therapy can assist you with navigating through these tough times while exploring the challenges that distort your way of thinking.
My name is Nityia (na-ty-ya) Lathan. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor. I have extensive experience working with a diverse population of individuals faced with stressors impacting their day to day functioning. My approach to therapy is humanistic, I apply Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques as well as Solution Focused Therapy to facilitate change.
I strongly believe that developing a safe, trusting, and supportive relationship is the foundation of an effective therapeutic alliance between client and clinician. It is my overall goal to assist clients with gaining insight into their behaviors & actions, improve confidence & decision making, all while creating healthy boundaries and coping mechanisms.
