John-Paul Nganga

Mental Health Counselor

John-Paul Nganga, MA, LMHC

Williamsburg Iowa Mental Health Counselor

My areas of expertise include: depression, anxiety, addiction, co-occurring mental health and substance abuse problems, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, personality disorder, relationship issues, anger management, attention deficit disorder, low self-esteem, family issues, and adjustment to life changes.

I can also work with Impulse Control Disorders, Mood Disorders and Personality Disorders. And behavioral issues and men’s issues.

I use a variety of treatment techniques in my counseling sessions depending on the needs of the individual client. Among the approaches I employ are: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Art Therapy, Emotionally Focused, Interpersonal, Christian Counseling, Person-Centered and Solution-Focused Therapies, as well as Existential. I see children, older adolescents and adults.

I provide support for the following communities: Christian, Cancer, Gay Allied, HIV / AIDS Allied, Lesbian Allied, Transgender Allied, Veterans, Black and African American and Hispanic and Latino.

My greatest reward as a therapist is helping my clients explore ways to make the changes in their lives that will allow them to look forward to the future with hope. I believe that we all need someone to talk with who will really listen and accepts us as we are, without judgment.
