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 have effectively helped many people and have specialized training to do so.  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 including years of trauma, painful grief, anxiety, depression, and years of addictions. Transitions such as losing a career, lifestyle change, loss of a friend or family member or an identity crisis are also challenges that one can experience in life. 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, should clients desire faith-based counseling, I do incorporate Christian related principles. Help is only a message away!

Written by A.S. on Aug 06, 2020 after counseling with Adeola for 1 month on issues concerning relationship issues, and intimacy-related issues

Adeola was fantastic! She helped me work through past relationship issues that were still affecting my mood and outlook on my life. Through our therapy sessions, I gained a ton of perspective and tools to help me work through my negative thoughts and feelings. I appreciate how I was able to become more open and heal from past trauma through her counseling. Thank you!!

Working with Adeola for the past six weeks has been amazing. Initially i was not so comfortable, but she made me feel comfortable. Talking to her was like talking to someone i had known for years. She is so relatable, and explains everything easily.
I looked forward to every session with her because by the second session in the second week it felt like i was talking to an elder sister, she made this whole process easy and i will definitely choose her over and over again.
She is very flexible and the way she related with me, made it easy for me to confront my own issues.

Adeola was my first ever therapist, and throughout the entire process made me feel understood and welcome. I felt like I was lead to understand my own issues gracefully and with care, rather than being presented with cold fact I had to face. The exercises Adeola had me undertake left a lasting impression on me and I still use some I remember today.

This is my second time doing therapy with Adeola. I returned for a couple of weeks to check in at a very stressful time in my life, and I can see my own progress before my eyes as compared to when I first started. I now have the tools I need to pick myself up from dark places much more easily than I did before I ever started therapy, and I owe it all to Adeola. I am so grateful.

Adeola is a great counselor and an even better human being. She listened to what I needed to share, gave me sound advice, and constantly boosted my confidence. Thank you for the support you have given me thus far - I really appreciate it.

Adeola is a very friendly person. It felt so easy to talk to her and explain my problems. She gave me the tools that I need to use in order to overcome my problems. I look forward to achieving my goals with her help.

I cannot thank Adeola enough for everything she has done for me. I've had to let go of BetterHelp for financial reasons, and it breaks my heart to let go of such an amazing, encouraging presence in my life that Adeola brought in buckets. She talked me through the demons and shone a light on the flimsy stories I have told myself for as long as I can remember. And she exposed them as nothing more than shadows. She didn't let me bully myself, and she never let me give up, and I'll be forever grateful to her.

I feel so blessed to have Adeola as my counselor, she is very patient and gives me great advise when needed. She is a God sent I feel like she truly cares for me and my wellbeing!

I’ve been working through some issues with anxiety and Adeola has been there for me. I appreciate having someone guide me on the path to a healthier mindset. She is patient and kind.

Adeola is easy to talk to and provides lots of worksheets for me to read over that relate to the issues I am wanting to work on. Our sessions thus far have been helpful and I look forward to continuing to work with her.

This has been the first time I've spoken to a counselor. It has been a great experience. I've learned some skills to help me deal with my anxieties and they really help. Adeola has been great to talk with. She also is very accommodating to your schedule and is very understanding. I am so glad I decided to try this with her.

Written by R.O. on Dec 11, 2018 after counseling with Adeola for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, and self esteem

My experience with Adeola is beyond awesome. I’ve seen several counselors before. I even spent years with them, but I never felt more connected, more understood and felt like I related with someone than I did with Adeola. I can see that she’s familiar with my issues. I did feel like I can express myself openly and without fear. She’s honest with me which is really helpful. I keep smiling during and after the sessions because she understands, cares, and helps me to think the right way.

Written by N.O. on Dec 03, 2018 after counseling with Adeola for 1 month

Before joining BetterHelp, I was very reluctant to speak to a counselor and share my thoughts and feeling although I was really struggling with several personal stressors. I had also never spoken to a counselor before. When I started to talk to Adeola, even after the first session I immediately felt much better, comfortable and more confident. She is an excellent listener, empathetic and devoted to her patients. She remembers all the details of things I tell her even in the past, and is always makes an extra effort to be there for me when I need her the most. She also checks up on me through the chat when she knows I have a stressful event coming up, and lets me talk even longer than duration of the scheduled session when she feels I need more time, which I really appreciate. Even after just one month, I feel so much better and stronger because of her. I am so thankful and look forward to working with for as long as possible.

I was skeptical about online counseling but this far the experience has been good Adeola has a very warm approach and I look forward to our discussion - I feel she is in tune to what my issues are right now and has taken time to stay up to date with my progression and what’s happening with my life - overall well paced and I’m no longer a sceptic - the online counseling with calls is useful.

Written by A.L. on Nov 14, 2018 after counseling with Adeola for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and self esteem

Adeola has been very helpful! She's friendly and easy to talk to, and she clearly knows her stuff. I've felt better since I started talking to her.
