Chinenye Ikeme


About Me

My name is Chinenye Ikeme and I am a Licensed Clinician Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC) in the state of North Carolina. I have worked as a therapist for over 5 years and enjoy helping my clients evolve through the journey of self-discovery, increased self-awareness and psychological growth that occurs through the process of counseling.

I have experience working with children, youth and adults of all ages, with various forms and severity of emotional, psychological and mental health problems from diverse cultural and social backgrounds. I apply counseling principles and methods in the treatment of psychological, emotional and mental health problems in individual and/or group format. I am also passionate about utilizing counseling models and strategies to promote overall bio-psycho-social wellbeing and prevent mental health problems from developing and escalating to diagnosable clinical levels. I believe in equipping clients with therapeutic interventions, coping strategies and problem-solving skills that can be applied to resolve personal, emotional and social problems even after the counseling relationship has ended.

Everyone’s needs are unique, and each person may have a different definition and experience of fulfillment and success. My goal is to help you reach your identified goals and explore with you the path towards these goals that work best for you. I provide a non-judgmental, warm, safe and positive psychological atmosphere to facilitate this process. Since every individual is unique with their own unique counseling needs, there is no singular “one-size-fits-all” approach that may work best for everyone. Therefore, I employ an integrative model involving cognitive-behavioral, person-centered, insight oriented, strengths-based, rational emotive and solution-focused models, amongst others, to address mental health concerns, alleviate emotional distress, cope with a variety of stressors, stimulate positive feelings of wellbeing that lead to healthy and positive behaviors, reactions, experiences and improved intrapersonal and interpersonal interactions and relationships. I provide supportive feedback and encouragement and serve as your personal cheerleader throughout the process. I look forward to working with you on this journey.

I am so incredibly thankful to have Chinenye's support and guidance through some difficult times and situations in my life. She is an excellent counselor, and I highly recommend her.

Written by S.U. on Nov 18, 2020 after therapy with Chinenye for 3 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and adhd

Simply put, talking with Chinenye has changed my life for the better in far more ways than one. She radiates warmth and insight and I have left every session with her feeling more empowered and more equipped to handle life's difficulties. It's not everyday you come across someone with as much innate ability to reach out and understand others. She's genuine, she's compassionate, she's wise, and she's a gift. I cannot recommend Chinenye more.
