About Nina Dismukes, LPC

Nina Dismukes has experience working with children, adolescents, adults, and families struggling with attention issues, learning disabilities, substance use, self-esteem, expressing emotions, trauma, coping skills, and more. Nina believes that effective therapy is a soulful-healing process that takes time, patience, loyalty, self-love, and the openness to communicate. Nina feels that it is important to help empower patients by allowing them to express themselves in a way that makes them feel comfortable and safe. She works collaboratively with clients, encourages them to be themselves, and motivates them to help ensure their personal goals are met and that treatment has been successful.

Nina Dismukes has received her Master's Degree from Marquette University in Clinical Mental Health with a specialization working with children and adolescents. During her time at Marquette, she was the Diversity Leader for her class and felt strongly about diversity and inclusion in the world of mental health involving people of color and the stigma behind those factors.

Nina has experience with DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy), CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), ACT (Acceptance Commitment Therapy), Narrative Therapy, Strength Based Therapy, Person Centered Therapy, and more. Although Nina has used different approaches, she does not believe in one therapy working for one individual or a specific diagnosis. Nina strongly believes that therapy is art and there is beauty in all therapeutic approaches that all can be useful and beneficial depending on the individual.

Nina is proud to work with a range of ages as well as a variety of reasons for treatment. Nina feels that therapy can be very cathartic and therapeutic for individuals and enjoys being a part of their journey.
