About My Clients

Are you engaging in behaviors in your life to cope with stress, distract from boredom, feel better emotionally, or celebrate good times that are having unintended negative consequences? If so, as a therapist, I can engage you in a series of conversations with the goal of helping you determine what changes, if any, you would like to make to develop skills for improved emotional health and to pursue a valued lifestyle.

My Background and Approach

I have years of clinical experience as a licensed counseling psychologist and my specialties including working with individuals struggling with substance use issues (alcohol and other drugs), difficulties with stress management, anxiety, depression, and insomnia (sleep disturbance). Research has found that some potential benefits of therapy include finding your symptoms greatly lessened, feeling more confident and relaxed, and improvements on how you manage your daily life responsibilities. My therapeutic approach includes Cognitive-Behavioral Approach, Motivational Interviewing, Motivational Enhancement Therapy, Multicultural Counseling Therapy, and HeartMath biofeedback for stress management. I also provide comprehensive psychological assessments for diagnostic purposes.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I embrace Multicultural Counseling Therapy which involves recognizing that everyone is not the same, and that individual differences and cultural identities such as race, ethnicity, immigration status, religion, socioeconomic background, gender identity, and sexual orientation can have an impact one’s mental health and recovery process. My role is to understand how cultural factors may impact the therapy process and tailor treatment plans to address these issues effectively and with sensitivity. I would like to support you on your journey for positive personal change. I currently offer therapy services in the evenings and on the weekends via video telehealth only. Feel free to contact me for additional information on my clinical practice, Okere Wellness Counseling and Consulting, PLLC.
