About Albert Nguyen

Welcome, I'm Albert, a dedicated therapist specializing in trauma recovery, anxiety, and depression, based out of California, but offering sessions online nationwide. With over 10 years of professional experience, my therapy blends Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Narrative Therapy, and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, enriched by my lifelong practice in martial arts for a holistic mind-body approach. As a certified LEVEL 2 CBT practitioner with advanced training from Stanford experts, I prioritize evidence-based, personalized care tailored to each client's unique journey. My practice is a safe, inclusive space, affirming of all cultural, gender, and sexual identities, where every client is met with understanding and respect. Whether you’re facing workplace stress, life transitions, performance anxiety, or exploring identity, my goal is to empower you towards growth and resilience. I understand the importance of accessible mental health care, which is why I am currently accepting varios insurances and offering out-of-network billing assistance for most major insurances. Ensuring you can receive the support you need without financial strain is a priority at Optimind Counseling. Take that first step – reach out for a free chat or drop me an email at [email protected].
