About

Negative thoughts can make us feel overwhelmed and hopeless to change. We may close ourselves off from others, even though we know opening up would make us feel better. Finding someone outside your personal life who can provide a safe space for you to talk things out sounds nice - and that's exactly what I offer. You know yourself best and I'm here to help you find the answers to your questions inside yourself.
In my work with teens and adults, I primarily use EMDR and CBT. EMDR holds a mirror up to you and your emotional and physical experiences so you can have more self-awareness and answer your own questions. CBT is great for understanding how your unhelpful thoughts and hurt feelings lead to negative behaviors so we can replace them with positive ones.
My clients come to me when they need to feel like themselves again, set better boundaries, and end toxic relationships; and I'm looking forward to helping you with the same issues. I will walk with you on your path to healing. It's easy to get lost on that path. Luckily, my experience and compassion are the GPS.

Rob Nganga's Groups

Assertiveness Group

Talking with others about our boundaries doesn’t always feel good; so sometimes we might let things go instead of asserting ourselves. People who are used to passive and passive-aggressive communication styles often feel they can’t be assertive without being aggressive. I, and the rest of this group, are here to tell you that’s not the case - and that you can assert yourself in a way that gets both attention and respect. This group meets weekly to support people of all races and gender identities who are over the age of 18 and struggle with communication skills a bit more than others.

More about this group

Women's Group

In my experience, I've found a consistent need for women to find a safe and supportive community. And as a man, I recognize how important it is to be aware of how my presence can be both a corrective experience as well as a triggering one. That's why this group is less about me sharing my expertise (not to be a negative-Nancy, but let's face it, I have no expertise in being a woman), and more about you becoming the positive-Penelope you truly are! All with the support of others who may have similar experiences.

More about this group

Transgender & Non-Binary Group

Do I know what it's like to be Transgender or Non-Binary? No. But do I know what it's like to feel different? Yes! And do I know what it's like to need acceptance? Hell yes! For individuals exploring their gender identity, finding a group where they feel accepted and encouraged to be themselves can be difficult. I'm offering this group specifically for people of Transgender and Non-Binary gender identities to create a safe space for sharing, acceptance, growth and community-building during weekly teletherapy meetings. Sharing is voluntary by the way, so no pressure!
