The desire for imaginary benefits often involves the loss of present blessings.


Dr. Elizabeth Nyang, Ed.D., M.A., LCPC


My name is Dr. Elizabeth Nyang. I earned a master’s degree in counseling from Seaton Hall University and a doctorate degree in counseling education from the American School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University. I work with clients that have issues with mood disorders, life issues, and addictions. I use mindfulness and tai chi techniques with clients to help them reduce stress and gain insight into their problems.  I accept clients in need of treatment for alcohol and drugs and work with them in a special program that includes group and individual counseling to help them build a plan to get in and stay in recovery.

 I am a long time student of meditation and spent one year learning walking and sitting meditation at a Buddhist Temple in Silver Spring, Maryland, have attended several workshops on meditation techniques, and received a certificate in Transformation Meditation Teacher Training, earned my first belt yellow bel in Tai Chi and I am working on my second belt in Tai Chi.
