Nakkia Grimes, LCSW, RPT-S


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.


Victoria Ferguson, MSW, LCSW, QDDP

Clinical Supervisor

I rejoined National Counseling Group in May of 2022. I previously worked for NCG in 2017 as a Community Based Counselor. I received my B.A. in Sociology from Norfolk State University and a Master's in Social Work in Advanced Clinical Practice from Walden University. I am currently working to obtain credentialing as a Registered Play Therapist and utilize play therapy interventions under the supervision of an RPT. I specialize in treating youth and adolescents, individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and those struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, self-esteem, and grief. I utilize a person-centered, solution-focused approach to empower my clients to effect change in their lives.

I’m certified as a LPC-R and CSAC-Supervisee in VA. I love helping others in need and being a vessel for change. I enjoy shopping and spending time with my family.
