Get to Know Me
Ifeyinwa (Ifey) Nzerem is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I provide culturally diverse psychotherapy for individuals and families. I widely practice behavioral therapies (Cognitive Behavioral and Dialectical Behavior Therapies). I specialize in eating disorders (primarily Binge Eating Disorder and Obesity). I have over 15 years of experience in brief therapy treatment working with children, adults, and families. In brief treatment, I can provide short-term crisis interventions by conducting an assessment and evaluation of the individual’s presenting problems. I treat individuals who have difficulties with handling family crises, substance abuse/dependencies, health and wellness lifestyle issues, and employment challenges. I provide community referrals and teach positive coping techniques that will enhance and support my clients daily challenges.
Has deemed me to be well confident and knowledgeable in caring out the tasks of a behavioral clinician/provider. In addition, I am registered with the Board of Behavioral Sciences.

In addition, I have provided training and seminars with the Bay Area Association of Black Social Workers (BAABSW), and the Black Family Preservation Symposium on Eating Disorders (primarily Binge Eating Disorder), Mind, Body, and Self-Care, and the Success of Exercise.
As a behavioral clinician, I bring a strong practical and theoretical foundation in improving clients’ daily challenges and life obstacles. I enjoy working with others, and I am experienced in treating families from all ethnic backgrounds with disadvantaged, traumatic, and abusive histories.
