About Joann

I help WOC struggling with negative self-talk rewrite their narratives by exploring their unique experiences, challenges, and strengths.


Joann Nguyen, LMSW

Do you have a hard time saying no? Do you feel like you are fighting against a timeline? Do you question yourself and ask yourself “am I good enough?” 


Growing up as a First generation Vietnamese American in the Bronx, I navigated the intersection of two worlds—the rich cultural tapestry of my Vietnamese heritage and the bustling energy of the Bronx. In both environments, emotions were often held close to the chest, viewed as a private affair, and seldom openly discussed. This upbringing ignited my passion for supporting individuals in embracing their emotions, especially in cultures where such expression might be met with hesitation. 

I’ve always had a calling to help people and that is what motivates me to hold a brave space for you. You deserve someone who will listen, meet you where you are at and guide you to healing. My mission is to create a safe, non-judgmental, and culturally sensitive space where you can explore your emotions, address thought patterns that may no longer serve you, and develop practical skills to overcome life's challenges. Whether you're facing anxiety, depression, or simply seeking personal growth, we will embark on a journey of self-discovery and healing.

Your emotions are valid, and your story deserves to be heard. Let's embark on this transformative journey together. Schedule a free 15-min consult here.

I'm dedicated to helping you unveil your inner strength, and unlock your potential for positive change.

My main therapeutic modality is Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT is a highly effective approach that empowers you to understand the connection between your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Together, we will work to identify and challenge unhelpful thought patterns and behaviors, fostering healthier emotional responses and life-changing results.

More About Me

Simple pleasure: Going to the gym and being able to move my body, a great cup of coffee,  watching the sunrise and sunset, being one with nature, adding more crystals to my collection, tarot reading, and FOOD I am a big foodie.

Not-so-fun fact: If I know the song that a store is playing I will sing and possibly perform. When something is going wrong my friends will text me and ask me if something is going wrong with the planets :)
