Funmilola Taiwo


About Me

Hello, my name is Funmilola Taiwo aka "Lola". I am a Supervising Licensed Independent Social Worker in Ohio, as well as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Texas and North Carolina. I received a Master's degree in Social Work in 2010 and have been working with children, adolescents, adults, and their families to address mental health concerns and symptoms ever since.

My therapeutic experiences include addressing a variety of mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, adjustment disorders, issues faced by LGBTQ, traumatic stress, secondary traumatic stress, relational concerns, anger management, parenting skills, and grief. I am also experienced in working with individuals that have cognitive delays and the parent or guardians of these individuals.

My treatment approach is client centered and solution focused, meeting the individual where they are, listening and learning where they would like to be, and collaboratively developing a plan of action specific for each client's needs. Evidence based modalities I utilize to assist individuals and families in achieving goals are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing.

Life sometimes throws some very difficult situations at us. My passion is helping individuals, particularly during those most challenging times. It would be my pleasure to assist and teach you skills and techniques to overcome whatever you're facing or may face in the future.
