Hi congratulations on taking the first steps to completing your goals. I am Blessing Okoli. I received a B.A in Psychology from California State University Northridge and a M.A. in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy from Pepperdine University’s Graduate School of Education and Psychology.
Often in our journey through life, we become lost and confused. Not just on our path in life but about who we truly are as well. My goal is to help you explore, understand, and develop your self-identity. I will be your companion through discovering who you are as an individual, including gender and sexual identity. Additionally, I aim to empower you - helping you overcome depression, anxiety, LGBTQIA+ concerns, abuse, grief, crisis, and many other challenges.
You are the expert on yourself and/or your children, however, I am here to help you further explore yourself and gain the support you need. Allow me to partner with you to develop a plan to help you gain clarity, overcome barriers, and further accentuate your strengths. I have been in community mental health for over 8 years and specialize in parenting psychoeducation, working with children, adults, couples, and families. I also treat individuals with trauma, depression, anxiety, loss and grief.
Asking for help or seeking therapy might be new to you, but it is something many individuals do when they are overwhelmed by life stressors such as relationships and work. As a Latino psychotherapist, I am aware of how our upbringing and culture can make seeing a therapist difficult. I want to make this process and experience a positive one. My goal is to assist individuals in how they manage stress and anxieties in their life. Together we can develop healthy coping skills as well as behavioral changes. I'll help you use the strengths you already have to be more effective. Are you ready to embark on a journey of self-awareness?
I believe we each possess the resilience and potential to overcome life's challenges, make difficult changes in our lives, and personally thrive. My role as a therapist is to guide my clients to better understand their inner worlds, improve emotional well-being, and tap into unique resources to access their personal strengths.
Navigating relationships in today's topsy turvy world can be challenging, especially when stressors threaten your ability to prioritize yourself and connect emotionally with others. Throughout my work with adults, teens, couples and families, I like to take into account all the ways that stress may be taking a front seat in your life. I’ve worked with over 1,000 clients and am still passionate about my work and the people that I encounter every single day.
Do you wonder why you have a big reaction to the small things in life? Seeking therapy, whether for the first time or the tenth time, takes courage and strength. I have heard from clients that even with cognitive insight they have remained stuck in distressing feelings/situations. I strongly believe that living coping skill to coping skill is not a viable long-term solution. Through personal experience, I have ascertained that knowledge of the root cause to a reaction or behavior is paramount to healing. I will not see you as a compilation of symptoms or a diagnosis, but rather as a person with needs that you are trying to get met.
At A Step in the Right Direction Intensive Outpatient Treatment Center our commitment is to help individuals recover from alcohol, substance abuse, trauma, and co-occurring disorders so that they may live balanced and productive lives. Individuals seeking recovery learn about addiction, triggers, and thought processes which allow for healing and hope as each individual begins to uncover, discover, and recover.

As a therapist I have a longstanding interest in helping clients heal their psychological issues against the background of their faith orientation. I graduated from Fuller Theological Seminary where integration of faith and psychology is primary and I continue to read a diverse number of classics in spiritual and theological literature. I am an Oblate at St. Andrew's Abbey a Catholic Benedictine Monastery. I have experience with clients from protestant, orthodox, Jewish, Christian and Roman Catholic denominations. I am familiar with issues facing pastors priests and religious. I also run a spiritual growth group on Tuesday nights.
I primarily have worked in a clinical setting with individuals and children. I believe that each individual shall receive tailored treatment to their needs in order to foster growth that is sustainable. In addition, I have worked with children and teens in school and home-based settings who struggled with anxiety, depression, and other mental health disorders. This may also include life changes within the familial unit or relational conflict.
Tell me your story, your struggles, your dreams, and we'll work together to heal and transform your life and relationships. My clients can expect a compassionate and collaborative space to heal from past wounds, strengthen their emotional wellness, and improve their relationships for lasting meaningful change. Please visit my website to learn more about how we can work together.
Making the choice to start therapy can be intimidating, but taking the steps to care for yourself and your mental health shows that you are ready for some change. In order for this change to develop, I place value on the importance of the therapeutic relationship and provide a safe space for clients to feel understood, challenged and empowered without feeling judged. I want all of my clients to feel as though therapy is a safe place to vent, laugh, cry, gain insight, and grow as in individual.
In the 20+ years I've been a therapist, I've learned that no two situations are the same. Therefore, I don't profess to have all the answers, but I'm very good at finding answers. I value getting to know people and finding out what has worked and what isn't working and then finding answers together.
