Nedra Cannon & Associates is a private counseling practice dedicated to helping clients reach and achieve fulfilling and balanced living. The therapeutic focus is on the mind, body and spirit. Our goal is to empower you to reach your full potential in all areas of your life and by helping you to discover the inner resources that exist inside of you.

Some days you wake up with just enough energy to make it through your insecurities, sadness, fears, shame and anger. Other days, you rely on your intuition to manage intense emotions and excessive worries (mood disorders & anxiety). Occasional anxiety is a normal part of life. However, when your worries are persistent, disrupts daily activities, and sabotages your relationships, it's a signal to identify supports on your journey to wellness. Let's work to discover ways to emerge stronger, more confident and resilient to face the world.

We welcome the opportunity to work with you through many of your life challenges (trauma mood disorders, anxiety etc.).
We want to encourage you to lean into the discomfort and vulnerability of the unknown and challenge your fears. We want to assist you with clarifying and understanding your individual struggles, relationship challenges and to learn ways to reach your self-determined goals through meaningful, well-informed choices and the resolution of problems.

At, Nedra Cannon and Associates attention is given to cultural, racial, and sexual diversity and the issues related to them. This is a safe environment that allows you to learn to be self-aware and mindful of destructive behaviors, feelings and thoughts. We will work together to move you toward a healthier you.--

Dear Clients, Colleagues, Partners and Visitors:

We have all watched in grief and anger at the murder of George Floyd months ago . . . and before that, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery . . . and before that Philando Castile, Eric Garner, and Trayvon Martin . . . and before that countless others for generations and centuries into our country's past.

On behalf of Nedra Cannon and Associates, I want to say that we stand with the peaceful protesters who are insisting with their voices and their bodies that this racist terror has to stop. We stand with those who insist Black Lives Matter. And we stand against those who would prevent these peaceful protest voices from being heard.

As a practice dedicated to mental health, I believe the most important action we can take together is to continue to meet the mental health needs of the people we serve. So we will do that.

We all have a lot of work to do. But for all of us, it is a time to declare where we stand. So I am telling you where Nedra Cannon and Associates stands.

Nedra Cannon and Associates Mission Statement

Nedra Cannon and Associates was founded by Nedra Cannon, LMSW. NCA specializes in working with complex trauma, problems related to racial trauma, sex therapy, imposter syndrome and navigating phase of life concerns. NCA is dedicated to providing those impacted by racial trauma, generational trauma , and survivors of sexual trauma the highest level of care.

Nedra founded NCA for three distinct purposes:

The first reason was to provide high quality mental health care to people, especially people of color , who have experienced chronic complex trauma including sexual abuse and assault. She is dedicated to working with therapists who want to provide high level care to women and families who are struggling with the generational passage of trauma. By developing NCA, Nedra is working towards high competency mental health services and integration of medication management aimed to eventually decrease health disparities on a population level. By providing education, resources, and high quality mental health to treat the systemic family problems that lead to higher instances of trauma - the hope is that enough change can be created to reduce the overall instances of mental health stigma, and increase overall whole health.

The second reason that NCA was created was to provide a unit that values the dignity of each individual therapist. It is rooted in Nedra's spiritual foundations, and the belief that each person has innate value in the world, and unique talents and gifts. Nedra's mission is to provide an extension of family that honors her contractors, interns and volunteers. NCA promotes a culture that promotes family life, stability, living your purpose , boundary formation, in addition to mental and physical health. The third reason is to establish a wellness center that is a safe place for marginalized communities to come for counseling, medication management, and meditation. Furthermore, by creating the wellness center, NCA will be leading the way in Michigan to offer workshops and trainings related to working specifically with people of color, diversity, equity and inclusion, with a social and racial justice lens.
