About My Clients

Nkem is an intern therapist at MEND Seattle. The organization provides quality, reasonable-cost mental health counseling to individuals, couples and groups. We are a collective of healers with diverse educational backgrounds and identities committed to an anti-oppressive and liberatory approach to therapy. We emphasize serving the QTBIPOC (Queer, Trans, Black, Indigenous, People of Color) Community. Nkem is interested in working with people from diverse backgrounds and a variety of concerns.

My Background and Approach

Nkem recognizes the innate need to collaborate with others to achieve wholeness through inner thoughts and self-realization. He sees you as possessing the ability to make choices to achieve positive life changes that can impact your environment, family community and other culture. As a Master of Clinical Mental Health Counseling student at the University of Phoenix, Arizona, Nkem recognizes that the family and society has a connection to the individual wholeness. This Humanistic, and Motivational interviewing therapies makes it possible to focus on individuals experiencing fear/anxiety, loss/grief, clinical depression, separation/divorce, and other issues affecting immigrants seeking self-realization. Nkem believes in the uniqueness and qualities people possess as their cultures presents a driving force to complement each other and is important to complete the circle of being human. All creeds are welcome through a holistic outlook through counseling as a non-judgmental environment.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

MEND Seattle values intersectional feminism and liberatory practices as a guide in our work of building a dynamic social justice mental health organization. We are committed to consistent critical thinking, reflection, and understanding of how systemic power structures work on us to shape our intrapsychic lives, our interpersonal relationships, and MEND’s institutional realities. We believe that critical social theory and an anti-oppressive lens are essential tools to personal and collective transformation. As a team, we aim to center our QTBIPOC (Queer, Trans, Black, Indigenous, People of Color) voices and needs in the community.
