EFUNTOMIWA ADEDEJI

(LICSW, LCSW-C, MSW)

About Me

I am a licensed clinical social worker/therapist licensed in Maryland and the District of Columbia with over 10 years of experience. I have been truly blessed to work with clients ranging from preteens to the elderly dealing with varying issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship issues to anger management, family issues and physical and emotional abuse to name a few. I have been especially proud of working with youth and young adults who were and formally in the foster care system transition emotionally and mentally to adulthood and society as a whole. These issues often interrupt our daily lives and can feel debilitating. However, when one has a trusting therapeutic relationship with someone who cares, one can work towards a path to freedom.

My counseling style is interactive, empathetic and warm. It is my belief that listening is the key to success in a therapeutic relationship and every client that I am blessed to serve will feel heard. Being treated with dignity, respect and compassion are also the tenets that I abide by and will display that in every interaction and intervention. My approach combines strengths therapy, cognitive-behavior therapy and solution-focused therapy to ensure that the highest level of outcomes are achieved as outlined by a unique treatment plan that will be tailored to your needs.

The courage it takes to decide to seek help to experience a healthier, happier life is no small feat but will derive high dividends through our work together. Throughout this process, and through your accomplished goals, you will soon realize that this was the best decision you ever made for yourself. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!
