Nanette Gonzalez is a Spanish speaking, New York State Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Arizona Licensed Professional Counselor. Practicing virtually, my goal is to provide a safe environment where we can discuss concerns individuals, couples or families may be encountering.
Nanette works with adolescents and adults, specializing with depression, anxiety, anger and trauma. She works with individuals, couples and families collaborating to learn and understand themselves and functioning in the world they live in.
Nanette, as a seasoned therapist, has worked with different not for profit organizations and has been in private practice, for the last five years, working towards guiding individuals and families to manage their everyday lives. Whether working with students through the challenges of middle school or high school, or understanding family dynamics, or adults in their work related stressors, relationships or family concerns, or anyone effected by their traumatic experiences, gaining empowerment and trust for healthier movement in their life, is what many have shared is important to them.
Nanette focuses on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to help understand the connection between our thoughts, feelings and the impact on our behavior. She uses additional therapeutic approaches to assist in creating a stronger sense of self and, in turn, others, incorporating the significance of utilizing not only healthy cognitive coping tools but mindfulness tools, as well. Nanette aims to create a safe and supportive environment where her clients can express privately and personally.
