Oreoluwa Lipede

(MA, CAGS, LMHC)

About Me

 I have been in the mental health field for over 15 years. My educational experience includes a CAGS in Counseling, MA in Rehabilitation Counseling, and a BA in Psychology.  I am a licensed mental health counselor, but I don’t consider myself your “typical” therapist. I like to tailor my style to each individual client and family. My background, experience, and faith allow me a certain level of cultural awareness, which I believe goes a long way in successfully working with families across generations. My main goal is to help individuals/families work through whatever the current crisis may be, but also teach or enhance skills to help maintain stability. My counseling approach is individualized, as no one style or approach is right for every individual. I encourage clients to look at different perspectives as we work on growing and rising above challenges that have been encountered, or are currently being faced.

As a woman of faith and a professional, I strongly believe it is perfectly fine to have Jesus AND therapy. Needing medication for a medical need and not being less "Christian", is the same as seeking mental health intervention; it does not make one less "Christian". Having tools in in proverbial toolbox is putting your faith into action, and I am here to help with providing tools that can help with living a full life as God intended.

Written by G.R. on Feb 22, 2021 after counseling with Oreoluwa for 1 month

Ore is the honestly the best counselor anyone could ever hope for. She exudes with genuine love, passion, and understanding, and knows the perfect thing to say at every instance. I always feel so comfortable around her, and can trust her to not be judgemental, but offer good advice and guidance.
