Hello, my name is Emmanuella Owobu a licensed therapist. I present myself fully, and professionally in helping willing clients develop the right coping skills to better handle successfully, challenging life, behavioral and mental issues like anger management, anxiety related disorders, trauma related disorders, bipolar related disorders, depression, suicidal thoughts, aging, effective parenting, change of life, grieving, self-esteem, family and couples problems, stress, as well as drug and alcohol use disorders. I provide psychotherapy, assessment, diagnosis, substance abuse treatment, and crisis management.
I possess extensive experience in multicultural sensitive therapeutic skills. Able to work with individuals, couples, family and groups.

Emmanuella has been a great source of healing for me. She listens, she shares information to help me and does so in the most compassionate way. In a short period of time I can see and feel a difference within myself based on her help.

I feel that my pairing with Emmanuela is nothing short of divine. I have had some deeply rooted issues and pain (and fear) for years. Emmanuela has professionally and empathically reached in to help me start to heal. I am thankful to God that I have found this amazing therapist! God sent me exactly what I needed. And I am truly on the road to recovery.

Emmanuella is wonderful to work with. She is attentive and intuitive and she gets right to the point in an encouraging manner. I appreciate her proactive manner especially when I'm wallowing in my frustrations and feelings. She avoids scolding and redirects me towards the Lord and his truth.
I really like how we finish each session by setting a course of action for the week and I always come away from our time together feeling encouraged and energized to keep working on myself and my relationships with the help of a God.

Emmanuella is exceptional. She is always supportive, has great reflections on my thoughts, and she challenges me in ways I did not know I needed. I am grateful to have her professionalism and expertise at this time in my life.
