Jasmine N. (Watts) Nnadi, LCMHCA, NCC
I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate (LCMHCA) #A15595, and I am so glad you are here and taking this journey with me. My mission in life is to inspire teens and young adults in discovering their gifts, renewing their minds and bodies, and strengthening their sense of confidence in themselves.
Choose To Be Happy, LLC evolved after I suffered from depression and anxiety in my junior year of college. During that time, I was on the road to graduating and yet I was completely lost. I had no sense of purpose and direction. I thought I knew who I wanted to be but, I wasn’t sure. This led to lots of insecurities, sadness, and fear. I was fearful of the unknown and I felt alone. Overtime, I realized I was not alone and guess what? You aren’t either. My feelings did not change overnight but I came to the realization that my life is worth living and I have control over my destiny and so do you!
I have earned a master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and I am nationally certified by the National Board for Certified Counselors. I have extensive experience working in various setting to include colleges, substance abuse agencies, and in criminal justice settings. I embrace a holistic approach to therapy and coaching and use a variety of treatment modalities to include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Person-Centered Therapy, Motivational Interviewing (MI), Solution-Focused Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). It can be hard to be vulnerable and feel safe enough to express yourself freely, but I want to help make that burden lighter, helping you through the hard parts, together.
It’s hard to be prepared for what your life will look like after high school or college. Life is full of uncertainties, but it doesn’t need to be scary. If you’re here, you’re in the right place. I am here to help you with your journey. I want you to feel welcome and at home.
