About Me

Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started! When working with clients I strive to make the therapy experience respectful, safe, and genuine. I believe that individuals are the expert of their stories and that they have many strengths that will assist them in overcoming things that challenge them.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) based in Fort Wainwright, Alaska with 6 plus years of experience working with people making a change in their life. I have worked with individuals challenged by depression, anxiety, anger issue, abuse, and life-changing situations. I have worked in several clinical settings including community mental health, hospitals, school, and prisons. I have experience in counseling couples, adolescents, and adults, and facilitating groups. My approach is strengths-based, solution-focused, client-centered, motivational interview, and cognitive-behavioral theory.

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Isatu Sidibe. 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.

I haven’t been paired with Isatu long, but she is always thorough with her responses and explanations. From day one she has been incredibly helpful with sifting through my mental/emotional struggles and providing relevant suggestions for strategizing. I look forward to continuing to learn more about my thought process with Isatu.

Written by T.E. on May 17, 2022 after therapy with Isatu for 1 week on issues concerning relationship issues, family conflicts, and grief

Isatu is compassionate, persistent, wise, and practical. I have written down many of her insights and have re-read them over and over again. She has advocated for me and has helped me find my voice. I hear from her most days--usually through her outreach. Her gentle guidance has helped me navigate through a very challenging situation with grace.
