As a licensed professional counselor and an international psychologist with several years of experience with individual and group therapy and business relations, I work with a diverse clientele and a variety of life concerns in my private practice. Such concerns include depression, anxiety, stress, relationship issues, trauma, cultural diversity concerns, and familial challenges.
My counseling style is warm and interactive, and I strongly believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and do not view or treat clients as a stigmatizing label. In session, I challenge clients to self-reflect and to go beyond the surface of the presenting issue, as such directness leads to personal growth. My therapeutic approach combines cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, and client-centered; however, I personalize each dialogue and treatment plan to meet clients' particular needs.
Seeking help to manage life's obstacles already shows a necessary characteristic (courage) by taking this first step to gain additional guidance to lead a more fulfilling and healthy life or make changes in certain areas of life. When you are ready to take that step, I am here to offer support and empowerment on your journey.
I look forward to working together!

Dr. Drain is fantastic. I am not good at expressing myself and my messages often feel like absolute messes, but she always reads through everything I say with patience and care and responds to every concern I have. With Dr. Drain, I really feel like I am being heard and I don't feel judged at all.
I really love working with Dr. Drain! You can tell that she takes the time to carefully reply to your messages in a positive and professional manner. I feel like I can talk to her about anything really!

Dr. Alagbala was great! She helped me for six months and I'm so thankful for her help and guidance. She taught me to love myself and set boundaries.
Dr. Alagbala is REAL, like she's a human but also understands. She isn't annoyed at my broken-record questions and feelings. Full of compassion but also empowerment. Thank You!!
Fantastic from the first message, Dr Alagbala really understood what I was going through and I felt she related to me immediately. She was able to help me get to the crux of my problems so quickly. What a great service!
