About

Greetings! Are common challenges such as anxious thoughts, chronic low energy, persistent feelings of sadness, or difficulties managing stress weighing you down? 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 improve your emotional health, manage stressors, and pursue a valued lifestyle. I have years of clinical experience as a licensed counseling psychologist and my specialties include working with individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, sleep difficulties, and substance use issues (alcohol and other drugs).
I would like to support you on your journey for positive personal change. My therapeutic approach includes Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Motivational Enhancement Therapy, Multicultural Counseling Therapy, and HeartMath biofeedback for stress management. I also provide comprehensive psychological assessments for diagnostic purpose
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.
