About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and have been working in the mental health field for about eight years. I have worked with adolescents, adults, and the elderly. I have helped individuals adjust to major life changes such as grief and loss, depression, anxiety, chronic illness, anger management, pain management, and other issues individuals experience. I provide an empathetic, compassionate and nonjudgmental space for my clients to be accepted and feel safe. I utilize person-centered therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and a strength-based approach to meet each individual's needs while also being culturally competent. During the initial visit, we will begin discussing what brought you to therapy and what you would like to receive from our sessions together.

Mr. Ekene is a very attentive and encouraging therapist. He creates a safe space that helps you to feel comfortable and express yourself more. The advices he gives really sticks with me and are helping me a lot. I am really happy that I have him as my therapist.

Asukwo is compassionate and at the same time asks the hard questions. From one session to the next, he recalls things I have previously said, and keeps me on track.

I like this therapist, because he actually listens to what my concerns are and responds accordingly. He pays attention. He gives good and sound advice. He is reliable in his answers. He has never missed the mark with anything in our conversations thus far.

Asuqwo has been brilliant. Extremely attentive and encouraging whilst still allowing me to speak very freely.
