About Me

Hello! I am Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Georgia.  I’m looking forward to our work together.  It’s an incredible joy and honor to walk with you and to be a guide on the healing journey you have set out on.  Working together there is a lot of transformation that can happen in your life.  I’ve effectively helped many people and have specialized training to do so.  At the same time growth can be difficult and sometimes things get worse before they get better.  The outcome of therapy is largely dependent on your willingness and commitment to the process.

Life can present many challenges. Some can be years of trauma, painful grief, anxiety, depression, years of addictions and others are transitions, such as losing a career, lifestyle change, loss of a friend or family member or an identity crisis. While those challenges can seem overwhelming, there is hope!

Through the use of a Dialectic Behavioral Therapy approach we can explore the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors related to various situations and learn to alter them when needed for the better. Through this process it is possible to learn skills to use to better manage behaviors. While my primary theoretical orientations are Dialectic Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy, I recognize that each client is unique. I therefore, tailor counseling needs to each individual. In addition, I am a devoted born-again Christian. Should you desire faith-based counseling, I do incorporate Christian related principles. Help is only a message away!

Adeola has been super helpful since I started counseling about a month ago. I.ve learnt how to cope with a lot of the things I'm going through with the various tools and worksheets she gave me. She listens attentively and is non-judgmental. We talk like we've known each other for a long time. She is very easy to talk to and very kind. It has just been a month and I've gained so much. I am sure there is so much more to gain going forward. I will definitely recommend her to anyone.

Adeola was very attentive in listening to my problems and she was also very supportive when listening. This made me feel more comfortable with telling her the things I was dealing with. She believed in me and constantly gave me tactics to build on my self esteem. To counter my the negative anxious thoughts I was dealing with, Adeola a variety of useful tools which I can continue using even after counselling. Thank you Adeola for being an amazing therapist that has changed my mindset on life and given me back the confidence in myself that I needed!

Adeola is super kind and non-judgmental. I am really thankful for all the advice and support she has given me so far!! After only a few weeks she has helped come to understand some things about myself.

She's given me far better counseling than my counsellors even in-person. I adore her and her flexible hours and expertise. I've already recommended a few friends to this service just on experience with her alone.
