Nakeesha Longmire, LCSW

A Licensed Clinical Social Worker Here for You

Committed to helping individuals, couples, and families navigate the complexities of life and tackle other stressors that affect them throughout their journeys. Healing is a collaborative endeavor that requires honest compassion free from judgment.  I utilize a multidimensional approach to therapy, exploring each person’s biological, psychological, and social needs.  I endeavor to promote healing from trauma, build self-worth, improve communication in relationships, and reach goals. Change happens when people are given the guidance and space to draw from their strengths and realize their most significant potential to live fulfilling lives.  I aim to provide a compassionate, supportive environment to help people overcome obstacles as they move forward and thrive. I am warm, open, encouraging, and direct as a therapist.  I aim to be an interactive and solution-focused therapist combining education, experience, creativity, and a sense of humor with a down-to-earth, realistic approach to counseling.
