FreEtta Nelson-Hemphill


About Me

"The Spirit of the Lord is upon me." As I work as a private practice mental health counselor, He anoints me to announce release to those captives of past trauma/abuse; anxiety, depression and stress. He works through me to exhort my clients on the journey of sight recovery and deliverance from oppressive and broken down problem areas.

I am so glad that you reached out to us for help. I am FreEtta Nelson-Hemphill, and I am a Licensed Certified Social Worker. Most of my clients refer to me as "Fritzi". You are welcome to do so also!

I have worked with many individuals with diverse cultural identities and backgrounds over the past 20 years. My job is to help you become successful in any problem areas that have come up for you at this point in your life. To do this, I will spend time listening to you and asking questions in order to get a "picture" of your life. I want to understand what is working and what is not. After we do this, we can take the information that you have given me and establish your therapy goals.

Psychotherapy has both benefits and risks. It requires an investment of time and energy in order to make your process successful. I will, most often, approach our work together from a Cognitive Behavioral Treatment perspective. I believe: Oh Yeah! You can handle this! When you are able to those adjust or restructure those thought patterns and behavior (s) that are precipitating and maintaining the problem area(s), you will see the change you desire.

I look forward to partnering with Him as we meet you and walk with you through in this season of your journey.

Grace, peace and spiritual blessings unto you!

Written by E.I. on Jul 28, 2020 after counseling with FreEtta for 2 weeks

She was super helpful and listens well while giving practical advice. Though I worked with her for a short time, I was able to apply her insights to my life and see one of my relationships restored. Thank you so much for what you do!
