Jimmy Nguyen received his M.Ed. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the College of William & Mary in 2023. As a second-generation Vietnamese American and native to northern Virginia, he moved to and lived in Japan for 11 years after graduating from the University of Washington with a B.A. in Japanese and linguistics. These experiences have afforded him a unique international lens and a passion for multicultural issues.
Jimmy works from a humanistic, strengths-based, and existential orientation while also incorporating concepts from cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), mindfulness, self-compassion, and motivational interviewing to help clients through adjustment issues, relationship issues, depression, anxiety, ADHD, trauma, drug abuse, LGBTQ+ issues, cultural identity issues, distress tolerance, lack of motivation, and pressures from family and society. He strives to provide a safe, nonjudgmental space for clients to freely explore and express their concerns. Jimmy believes in working collaboratively with clients to develop achievable goals, to accomplish sustainable growth and change, to acquire healthy skills for optimal living, and to foster fulfilling relationships.
