Nakkia Brickhouse, LCSW, RPT-S

State Director

I have been with NCG since June, 2008. I started out as a Community Based Counselor II, then became a clinical supervisor, and an Assistant Site Director at the Virginia Beach site. I obtained my B.S. from Old Dominion University and my MSW degree from Norfolk State University. I am in the process of becoming a registered play therapist, and have started the Crisis Stabilization Program for children and adults at the Virginia Beach site. I also enjoy reading and watching movies.

I joined the NCG family in 2015 and became a clinical supervisor in 2021. I obtained a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice and minor in Psychology from Chowan University, a master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Walden University, and currently pending licensure. I am an advisor and member of the Sunshine Committee, a committee that is responsible for organizing company events and fostering team morale. Some of my interests  include spending time with my family, reading, traveling, and karaoke. 


Lemuel Williams, MA, LPC

I began working at NCG in 2010, providing both intensive in-home and MHSS services. I got my bachelor's degree in psychology & computer science from Oral Roberts University and a dual master's in school and community counseling from Regent University. I am a National Certified Counselor, Certified Traumatologist, Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and Resident LMFT. I am the newest clinical supervisor and oversee the Crisis Stabilization program. I have a passion for trauma and have had the privilege to travel doing trauma work in South Africa, Haiti, Nicaragua, Kenya, and Romania. Fun fact about me: I play 8 musical instruments!


Shakara Thomas, LMHP-S

Clinical Supervisor

I joined the NCG team in January 2024. I earned a Bachelor of Science in Clinical Psychology from Saint Augustine’s University in 2013, a Master of Social Work Degree from Norfolk State University in 2019, and I am currently pending licensure. I have experience providing mental health treatment for individuals and families in the school setting and outpatient therapy setting. I have a passion for assisting both individuals and families as they go through different life experiences to guide them on their journey of healing and finding peace.  When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, cooking, and sports.


Sara Boyd, MS

Supervisee in Social Work

I joined the NCG team in August of 2022. I earned a Bachelor of Science in Social Work from Longwood University in 2018, and a Master of Social Work from Fordham University in 2023, and I am currently pending licensure. I am very excited to be working in a supervisory setting as I have developed a great passion for fostering growth and development in any way that I can; within myself, my clients, my team, my organization, my community, and my profession. When I am not at work, I am probably doing something outside, like going on a run, walking my dog, or, most importantly, sitting on the beach.
