Hello, I’m Yaneka (Nikki) Willis and I’m excited you found my page. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor-Supervisor in the great state of Texas offering many years of education and counseling experience in different settings. I am both a nurturing and direct therapist who utilizes a collaborative and compassionate approach to counseling in an effort to foster hope, healing, and resilience. I have extensive experience in trauma-informed care. While I am not a Christian Counselor, I am a Christian who incorporates biblical principles in the therapeutic process.
My focus has been working with individuals in crisis and with those who have found themselves coping with adversity (trauma). I hope to help you engage and enhance your capacity for introspection, reflection, and self-awareness to better understand and navigate your past, present, and future allowing you to feel empowered and hopeful in spite of trauma, anxiety, loss, and hardships.
I believe that the therapeutic relationship is one of the biggest indicators of change, which is why I strive to create a safe space in which you can feel seen as well as heard. I place great importance on understanding and meeting you where you are in the therapeutic process. I will work with you to recognize and identify the constraints that might be hindering you from setting and reaching your goals. I will work with you to empower you to reconstruct or recreate new narratives that bring about understanding, healing, meaning, and a stronger sense of self. I look forward to talking with you.
