My name is Evalyne, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Wisconsin. I went to Alverno College for my BA in Psychology and Professional Communication. Then, I attended Marquette University and obtained my MA in clinical psychology. Finally, I earned a PhD in Education and Leadership for the advancement of Learning and Services from Cardinal Stritch University. Besides my helping profession, I am also a lecturer at college level. I have been providing therapeutic services since 2013. I have worked with varied populations across ages, including: geriatrics, people with multicultural backgrounds, those who are incarcerated or in conflict with the law. I also worked with the half-way home, and physically challenged populations in group-home settings. I will be happy to walk with you in pursuit of your goals toward wholeness.
I practice from an eclectic approach since each client is unique and responds to different Technics and approaches depending on the issue at hand. I also believe in attending to a client, as a “whole”, person because I believe problems are often caused by a host of things. My part as a therapist is to guide, support and empower that individual through the healing process without judgement. My services encompass benevolence, and empathy to my clients. After all, it is all about the client and what he/she needs. I am caring, yet firm when necessary, since we all need a nudge at times to move on. I love to work with people who are committed to unfolding a baggage in their life-stories as they work towards life's happiness and self-fulfillment. I utilize integrative therapies, such as humanistic/client-centered approach because I believe that clients have strengths to build-on during therapy and after therapy. I also employ Cognitive Behavior Therapy because I find it useful for many emotional cases. Together we can address client’s concerns/issues in the most helpful manner that can bring healing/relief to that individual making life better and peaceful. I purposely say “we” because I firmly believe that a client has capability to explore and work through issues. While working through the sessions, I like to reinforce the elements of positive psychology. If you and I can make a good “team,” I am here for YOU. Let us walk that mile together.
My therapeutic approach Include but not limited to:
Humanistic/Client - centered approach
Cognitive behavior therapy
Faith integration for (those who need it)
Grief and Loss issues
Career decision -making
Also, I have experience in:
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), coping with life changes
Aside from my professional activities; I like reading relevant literature, attending workshops and seminars for CE to keep myself abreast with the current findings in the field. One of the things I do to give back to the community is, teaching, mentoring upcoming Counselors, and enjoying peer advising group discussions. Additionally, I also do research and sometimes just chill out.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Evalyne Ekesa. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
My time spent with Dr. Ekesa has been extremely helpful. She is a very patient listener, kind and a no-nonsense therapist. I have gained many valuable tools to help with anxiety and personal issues. She has been very good at helping me realize my own potential. I am very grateful for her professionalism and expertise.
I started therapy with Dr Ekesa last year. It was very hard to find a therapist I'm comfortable with. But with Dr Ekesa it was different. I feel very comfortable talking to her and safe, she did not judge and I felt very understood by her. She was empathetic and tried to guide and make me stronger and validating when that time I needed it the most. Very wise and I learned alot from her and felt like someone understood me. I thank Dr Ekesa for how she made me feel about myself and I would recommend her as an amazing therapist to anyone who is in need of help.
Very happy with Dr Ekesa after my first two sessions. I look forward to continuing my journey with her.
I started therapy with Dr. Ekesa last year. She has been an amazing help to me. After sessions with her I often feel that some calm and clarity had been brought into whatever had been weighing on my mind. Her advice and wisdom breathes fresh perspective into the situation. Dr Ekesa is very wise and competent and yet easy to talk to and approachable so I feel at ease during sessions. Each sessions provides a safe environment to talk and unpack. I always learn so much and come away from the call with lots of notes to reflect on and more hope, faith, love and positivity.
She is a great fit for me and has helped me grately
Sharing my experience with Dr. Ekesa has been wonderful so far. She’s made me feel safe and I felt like I could share everything with her. Dr. Ekesa is good at giving advise and motivating me through every doubt. Working with her so far has been a great experience and I would definitely recommend her and BetterHelp to others.
I feel very fortunate to have Dr. Ekesa as a therapist through BetterHelp. Every week I learn very important insights from her to assist in my healing and continued growth. She maintains an incredible balance of encouragement, accountability and wisdom.
Dr. Ekesa has an abundance of wisdom, real wisdom, which is sorely missing in today's world of self help, instant-everything, quick fix, life hack world that we live in which leaves us so empty and lost. Her perspective and advice has a unique ability to realign people with what is True. Dr. Ekesa excels at figuring out what the real questions are that should be asked. Those questions are often the ones we choose to avoid, but are the ones that have the potential to unlock the door to healing.
Dr. Ekesa has been a wonderful therapist. She is always engaging and very thoughtful. Our live sessions have been the most helpful. I would recommend her to anyone I loved. Thank you doctor! You have been of great help.
Dr. Ekesa is nothing short of amazing. Even just after a few sessions I was able to learn a lot about myself and how to process things I wouldn’t have been able to otherwise. She’s smart, a fantastic listener, and genuinely is interested in my well-being. I would recommend her to anyone.

On time and present! It took me a while to find the right therapist, but my first session with the was worth it! She listens and is curious about me. She asked all the right questions that helps me ponder. She gives out word of wisdom and encouragement as well as practical ways to help us become someone we were always meant to be. She does not judge. She sits in our story and allow space for silence. I would highly recommend her!

Dr. Ekesa is just the best. She has such a grounded, calm presence. And she gives the best advice. We did counseling together for a few months and she always did extra research to try to help me when I was faced with unique issues, which I always appreciated. She is a great support and always encouraged me to stay focused and do my best. She sees the best in you and with patience, she allows you to see that in yourself. I highly highly recommend her!
Dr. Ekesa has been a key factor in my new mental health outlook and I can’t thank her enough. I’m going to take a break but I’m looking forward to talking to her again!

Dr. Ekesa is one of those wise humans you come across once in a blue moon. I've worked with a number of therapists over the years and have to say that her insights were extremely comforting during a time of real sorrow for me. One of my favorite takeaways was "It would be lovely to live at the top of the mountain all the time, but sometimes you have to walk through the valleys." She is kind and thoughtful and also firm in her approach which I very much needed and appreciated. I am thankful to have learnt from her and couldn't recommend her more.
Dr. Ekesa was fantastic to work with! She continually provided quotes and advice to inspire me. She was very punctual, had appointments available frequently, and was flexible when I had to cancel or cut short a session. I would definitely use her as a counselor again and recommend her to others!
I wish I would’ve met and started therapy with Dr Ekesa a long time ago. She has helped me in so many ways.

I am very grateful to have had her support me through this chapter of my life.
Dr. Ekesa is a great listener! She gives phenomenal advice and is very pleasant to speak with. I very much enjoy my sessions with her and would highly recommend her!
If you need someone who not only listens well but provides sage and productive advice, look no further than Dr. Ekesa. After only one session, I felt as though my soul had a double shot of espresso and that there wasn't anything I couldn't do! She is truly empowering and empathetic. Forever grateful for her expertise and encouragement.
Dr. Ekesa helped me a lot during these last months. I arrived feeling lost but now feel like I have a clearer idea of where I‘m going , with practical tools and good advice by Dr. Ekesa.
