About Me

Hi! My name is Efuntomiwa (Mimi) Adedeji, I am a Christian and a licensed clinical therapist with over 10 years of experience working with an array of clients ranging from preteens to the elderly. Before I tell you a little more about myself, I just want say that I am really happy you have reached out. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 says that “All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work”. What this scripture speaks of is the usefulness of teaching, pointing out areas of concerns or strife, identifying solutions and ultimately enjoying the benefit of the newness of life. I know personally feeling that at times God is silent and is watching your life fall apart. You wonder, are your prayers being heard? Sometimes, our problems seem so great and so impossible that we cannot even share them with anyone else. I am here to help! Let me be the first to tell you that there is no shame in seeking help to work through your issues and it will a big blessing to me to have the opportunity to serve and assist you in getting to that place of insurmountable peace and joy. It is not an easy thing to ask for help, or seek out therapy and for that I commend you. You are doing a brave thing!

As I mentioned earlier, I am a licensed clinical therapist working with adults, youth and families for over a decade. I have worked closely with clients to address a wide array of diagnoses such as: anxiety, depression, ADHD and PTSD; and on issues such as: relationships, self-confidence, stress management, communication, sexual issues, domestic violence, interpersonal and familial conflicts to name a few. Though I have been a Christian for most of my life, it has been an interesting journey to lead me to this point in my life. I strongly believe that God has put me in a position to serve and make His people feel better so that they can ultimately serve Him. I also believe that therapy is as personal and intimate of a journey as our religious one. Therapy is not a one size fits all approach so our therapeutic work together will be tailored to your specific needs and goals for your life. I offer you today the opportunity to build a relationship with a fellow Christian and work through all of the issues you have felt were too much to carry on your own. This can be a space to vent and process, or this can be a strategic journey that provides structure and goals to accomplish. Whatever you are looking for, we can create that path towards a positive tomorrow together. I look forward to getting to know you better!

Mimi is just a breath of fresh air. She listens and provides wonderful insight. Her humility is extremely encouraging to witness and learn from.
