Fantanesh Angaw


About Me

I am a graduate from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, class of 2016. I am originally from East Africa, Ethiopia, and I am a Las Vegas/California resident. I absolutely love working with people and helping my clients to reach their fullest potential of happiness and develop a mindset made with an abundance of resiliency.

My approach in therapy is always, "meet the client where he/she is at." I am a great listener, I am gentle, nd have been told many times, "Your voice is so calming." I do my best to always provide my clients the most sincere and professional information about mental health, emotional problems, interpersonal relationship problems, and grieve and loss issues, life-adjustment issues, addictions, ect.

Additionally, I am very experienced in working with couples to resolve issues such as loss of connection, intimacy, communication, conflict resolution, forgiveness, and rebuilding trust. I follow the guidelines in social work code of ethics as well as evidence-based practices that are found to be effective with couple's counseling. I have worked with couple's for the last few years and I truly enjoy helping my clients strengthen their relationships.

I strive to work hard in my job and I am most confident in my abilities to empower and motivate my clients. Being well-rounded in therapy is why I believe my clients continue to return in therapy.
