Candace Nino

Registered Associate MFT

About

My name is Candace Nino, I am a Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist and a Registered Associate Professional Clinical Counselor. I graduated from California Baptist University with a Master of Science in Counseling Psychology. I have had the opportunity to work with the young adolescent population to provide school based therapy for the last four years. I have also gained clinical experience working with special education students who have faced emotional disturbances that impede their academic functioning. I have had the privilege of treating clients who struggled with depression, generalized anxiety, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, oppositional defiant disorder and personality disorders. My theoretical orientation is Personal Centered Therapy and occasionally I utilize an eclectic approach to accommodate the clients individual needs and implement appropriate techniques that are most beneficial for the client. I provide therapeutic services to individuals, couples, and families looking for additional social emotional support.

I aspire to assist clients in their moments of triumph as well as defeat, self-discovery, and understanding. I emphasize clients strengths and provide a safe environment to explore areas of growth and turmoil. My ultimate goal is to set the client up for success in achieving the best version of themselves and to sustain healthy functioning and symptom management. It would be a privilege to accompany you on your therapeutic journey.

LCMHC, LPC

About

In my role as counselor I am honored to support individuals who are struggling with various aspects of life. Perhaps dealing with strong anxiety or depression, negative self talk, relationship issues, work or school pressures, unhealthy habits and poor self care. Does any of this sound like you? I will work with you to understand what is happening, design strategies to address your specific issues, and work step by step with you as we remove the barriers and build new and better ways of being you. Healthy, happy and connected to the world around you.
Encompassing compassion and practicality, I use cognitive behavioral, mindfulness, and short-term solution-focused therapies, often in my practice. I am EMDR trained, but prefer to use EFT (a cognitive somatic tapping technique), shown to help individuals integrate and heal from past traumatic events, life experience, difficult memories, present food cravings, stress, anxiety, and phobias. I also use cognitive behavioral therapy to help clients process certain issues and find solutions. My blending of cognitive and mind-body practice creates a unique healing experience for clients.
I am eager to help you thrive in all areas of your life, and will offer you the tools to make effective and lasting changes. I look forward to working with you towards the peace and health you desire. For clients who prefer speaking Spanish, I have a good command of the language. I am licensed in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Maryland and Vermont.

About

I am an LCMHCA currently working in private practice where I specialize in working with severe and persistent mental illness (SPMIs), focusing on treating mood disorders and trauma. I utilize an integrative approach applying a hybrid of Cognitive Behavioral, Psychoanalytic, and Internal Family Systems (IFS) techniques.  I am trained in both Trauma-Focused CBT, and as a level 1 IFS therapist.  I am currently becoming a Certified Forensic Mental Health Evaluator, after which I plan to perform sentence deviation and risk assessments in order to determine appropriate sentencing guidelines.  I am a North Carolina native and completed my undergraduate and graduate degrees at Catawba College.  My research interests include the intersection of mental health and the criminal justice system, the development of neurodevelopmental disorders, and genetic links between schizophrenia and associated comorbid conditions.

About

I work with clients who may be struggling with anxiety, depression, and trauma in a way that's impacting their view of themselves and their ability to find wellbeing in relationships. In addition, I enjoy working with teens and adults on issues related to perfectionism, people-pleasing, codependency, relationship dynamics, sports performance, and sports injury. If you struggle with any of the above or with feelings of guilt, shame, resentment, not being enough/good enough, or vulnerability, I’d love to work with you!

Because each person is unique, I believe therapy is most effective when the approach is adapted to meet the needs of each individual. My approach is a combination of identifying and removing obstacles that are preventing healing while simultaneously providing support to help you move towards health. In sessions, this could involve exploring your past to understand how it impacts you today as well as gaining awareness, insight, and practical skills to help you move forward.

I hope to bring warmth, genuineness, and authenticity to our sessions in a way that invites you to do the same. I strive to create a space where you feel safe enough to open up and share your story, and it’s my goal that you would leave each session feeling seen, heard, and understood. As you move towards healing, my desire for you is that you would learn to live more authentically and wholeheartedly with a greater capacity for joy, connection, resilience, and hope.

I would love the opportunity to learn more about you and your reasons for seeking therapy to see if I’m the right fit for you. I hope to hear from you!
