Naomi Yohannes, MS
Hello! I am a resident in counseling and I specialize in working with tweens, teens, and adults struggling with anxiety, depression, emotional regulation, life transitions, and more. I believe that clients are more willing to try new coping skills and ways of understanding themselves and world when they have a genuine relationship with a thoughtful and supportive therapist. As such, I utilize a strengths-based and collaborative approach to helping people make important changes and ease some of their difficulties. I work to create a safe, open, and reflective space for clients to learn and grow.
I earned my BA in Psychology from the University of Virginia and MS in Counseling from Virginia Commonwealth University. I have experience working with adolescents and adults in community mental health, private practice, and in the hospital setting. I have a special interest in working with people of color. I am currently a Resident in Counseling under the supervision of Matt Browning, LPC.
I grew up in Springfield, VA and went to West Springfield High School. I like to spend time with my friends and family, travel, and occasionally binge watch TV. I provide walk-and-talk and face-to-face sessions at the Arlington/Alexandria office and provide teletherapy across the state of Virginia.
