About Me

Work with me!

Welcome to Betterhelp. My name is Abiodun Harris. My clients call me "Abby". I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the states of Oklahoma and Texas and have a Master of Human Relations degree from the University of Oklahoma.

I have experience working with a wide array of clients from different cultural backgrounds dealing with various life challenges including depression, anxiety, mood disorders, relationship issues and substance abuse.

I am experienced in many counseling techniques and I can combine such techniques based on a client's present concerns and goals. I primarily use Cognitive Behavioral Technique (CBT) which involves a collaboration with clients to jointly come up with the best goals and solutions to alleviate their symptoms for a better quality of life. This technique focuses on changing how we think in a way that changes our emotions and behaviors. I also utilize client-centered therapy that regards clients as experts on their lives and thus determine the direction and depth of therapy.

I am passionate about my job as a therapist and strive to establish a therapeutic relationship with clients that fosters a strong rapport, trust, comfortable environment, unconditional positive regard, respect, dignity and compassion.

As a non-judgmental and open-minded listener, I also approach the therapeutic relationship with acute sensitivity to multi/cross-cultural factors.

I believe that having a good connection with my clients helps facilitate effective counseling and provides the best outcome. My goal as a Counselor is to restore hope to those who have lost it and empower clients to develop healthy coping skills to enjoy life fully. I applaud your courage to seek help and I intend to support and work with you to achieve a more fulfilling life.

I look forward to working with you.

In my short time with Abby I really feel like BetterHelp did an amazing job at matching me with a counselor who is more then qualified for my needs. I appreciated her gentle honesty and I feel safe opening up and processing with Abby as we continue to work together.

When I first started my session with her, I was so nervous. She makes you feel so comfortable with yourself and just talk to her like she’s your friend. I knew she was the therapist for me because she’s compassionate, understanding, sweet, and has a great sense of humor. She has helped me gotten over almost all of my biggest problems in 2 months that I have been dealing with for years. She is seriously an amazing woman, and I just want everyone to know that! I just want to say thank you so much to her, and she has been the best person to help me.

I love Abby’s positive energy and enthusiasm. I like that she shoots straight with me and also makes me work on things. I feel very encouraged and supported.

A very good conselor. However, with 30 min session, it is just too short.
