Emmanuel Nwala, LPC

Philosophy of Care

I come from a multicultural background and adopt a multicultural mindset in working with clients. I have worked with clients from diverse backgrounds, and clients presenting with different behavioral/ mental health problems. I tailor my therapy technique based on client's presenting problem so that I am able to meet the client's needs for therapy. I am experienced in the use of cognitive behavioral therapy, client-centered therapy, motivational interviewing, solution-focused therapy, dialectic behavioral therapy etc. 

I stay engaged with the client throughout therapy process and can change therapy technique once the client and I determine that a previous or current technique isn't very effective. I am licensed as a Licensed Professional Counselor in multiple states at a Master degree level and have been practicing for over 6 years. I have a PhD in Psychology that equipped me with psychological assessments that can be instrumental to mental/ behavioral health treatments. 

I have worked with clients presenting with disorders to include but not limited to: anxiety, depression, adjustment, conduct disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, grief and loss, bipolar, borderline, relationship issues, PTSD, and other personality and clinical disorders. I do not see my client as the problem. I see the presenting struggle as the problem that needs to be resolved. My job throughout therapy process is to help my client reach the goal for coming to therapy.
