About Me

My name is Nghia Le, pronounced like “Knee-uh Lay”. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Illinois (#149.022590). I used he/him pronouns and identify as a Vietnamese American. Client’s I work with often feel “in-between”, they feel unsure about where they are, where they are going, or even who they are. It is hard for them to feel fully themselves and that can sometimes present as anxiety or depression, constantly worried about the future or struggling to let go of the past. I also work with clients who feel stuck due to traumatic experiences. I have specific training and experience working with individuals that come from immigrant families, are immigrants themselves, or in the adoption constellation. This “in-between” feeling in these cases are often tied to their racial or cultural identity and values. It can cause a weak sense of self making them more indecisive in their career, relationships, and life transitions.
