Nathaniel Mason, MEd
Resident Clinical Mental Health Counselor
Nathaniel Mason is a recent graduate from the College of William & Mary’s School of Education and obtained his M.Ed. in Clinical Mental Health and Addictions Counseling. He is beyond thrilled and honored to start his work serving the community as a new Resident-in-Counseling. 

Nathaniel has several years of experience including in-home counseling, therapeutic day treatment, and outpatient counseling serving court-mandated adolescents with comorbid substance use disorders and other mental health concerns, their families, and college-aged young adults. He has worked at Bacon Street Youth and Family Services and the New Leaf Clinic at William and Mary for his counseling practicum and internships. He is currently under the supervision of Amanda Deverich, LMFT and Dr. Daniel Gutierrez, LPC, LMHC, NCC.  

Nathaniel believes first and foremost in the power of the therapeutic relationship. His main goal for all clients, no matter their background or belief systems, is to help them feel as comfortable as possible to be able to achieve their goals during therapy. Nathaniel ascribes to a Person-Centered, Strengths-Based, Motivational Interviewing approach to counseling, with aspects of Solution-Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral approaches, and Existential concerns. Nathaniel tailors his approach to fit the client’s needs and to meet them where they are at any given moment in therapy. Nathaniel is particularly passionate about adolescents and young adults seeking assistance as they maintain sobriety from substances.  
Clients often come to therapy feeling un-empowered, unaware of their strengths, and unsure of what direction to go in to solve complicated problems in their relationships, work/school/life-balance, and their emotional worlds. Nathaniel believes that while therapists do not provide direct answers or advice in most cases with clients, they can set up the roadmaps and build the foundations to empower clients to build a fulfilling life for themselves, and to live more intentionally every day. This can be done through interventions such as, but not limited to, meaning-making, goal-setting, insight-awareness, and understanding patterns of interacting or thinking that lead to negative outcomes. Therapy does not have to be a long, convoluted process with the therapist as the expert. Nathaniel believes that clients help the therapist become more competent in their skills and that it is a collaborative process to instill change. The therapist is never the expert on clients’ well-being or desired goals. The therapist should assist the client to feel comfortable bringing in spiritual or cultural practices to assist them in the therapeutic process.

I am beyond excited to meet you and will provide you with an individualized, enriching experience designed to help you feel better! You deserve it!
