Hi, my name is Ofori Asante and I am a licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Texas.
I specialize in helping others figure out the causes of their frustrations, anger, anxiety and lack of resources in dealing with their problems.
I worked as a mental health technician in a behavioral hospital and a refugee resettlement agency after my first degree. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Development and Family Studies from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
I have also earned a Master’s in Counseling and Sociology from Texas A&M University – Commerce. I have been a licensed professional counselor for the past 10 years and my clinical background includes work with college students, children, adolescents, and families. I am a nationally certified counselor and a member of the Texas Counseling Association (TCA).
My areas of interest include leadership, conference presentations on diverse issues among college students and their families, multicultural and diversity issues. My primary research interest includes marital satisfaction in intercultural couples. I have vast experience working with those who suffer from chronic mental illness including schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, and anxiety. I also have a wealth of experience working with those struggling with self-esteem, phobias, self-worth, poor relationships, and grief.
I was the Truax Scholarship recipient in 2005 and the outstanding master’s level student in the department of Counseling Texas A&M University -Commerce in 2003 and 2005 year. I am a counselor supervisor for the state of Texas when it comes to license professional counseling training from 2010 to present.
Married with two beautiful children, I am also involved in my church and teach Sunday school and lead prayers. I provide marital counseling and am also available to the clients specifically looking for biblical counseling. I completed my doctoral education in Texas A&M University – Commerce looking at Marital Satisfaction among Filipino Americans and European Americans in intercultural Marriages. I work with people of all race but focus on people of African descent and those in intercultural relationships with Africans in general.

Dr. Asante is very professional and dedicates time to listening to your concerns and provides helpful supportive information.
Dr. Asante is one of the best therapists I've ever worked with
He's very knowledgeable and knows exactly what you need
He's a great listener and has so many tools that helped me improve my life tremendously
I highly recommend him
I had a short duration with him, but he timely responded to my queries and the help I required and is a great person who knows exactly what to say.
Dr. Asante is not only really knowledgeable but also provides practical advice to better achieve one's goals. This sets him apart from most therapist who will only listen and say "be positive".
At 43, I chose to love myself and give myself the gift of therapy. I was terrified to sign up and start this journey. When I was matched with Dr. Asante and I viewed his profile, I knew I had found my match. His level of expertise and warm smile was exactly what I needed. When our sessions first started, I felt broken, lost and depressed. Within weeks I started feeling healed. He has helped me process my depression and anxiety while helping me repair the relationship with my mom. He is kind, patient and knows how to explain things so that I can understand . I would recommend him to anyone seeking therapy who is ready to work towards their goals!
Very kind, patient and understanding man, with a wide variety of knowledge and understanding and will tailor your therapy towards your needs. Highly recommend
I am very comfortable with Dr Asante. I feel like he understands me well
I've made alot of progress with dealing with and healing from my traumas since I began working with Dr. Asante. I've also made alot of progress in other areas of my life such as business and finance. He has completely changed my perspective and given me the tools to cope with issues that arise in my life. I would definitely recommend Dr. Asante and BetterHelp.
Amazing experience with Dr.Sante, he has helped me so much with dealing with my struggles, he’s so insightful and helpful. I would highly recommend him to anyone who’s struggling!
Dr Asante is very encouraging and helps me better understand how I often perceive things that are affecting me. He helps me find ways to shift my perspective in a positive manner.
I have had several counselors in my lifetime, and Dr. Asante has been one of the best. He is extremely knowledgeable and he does a fantastic job at transferring that knowledge to help me figure out the things that are troubling me.
I had councillor before. I never connected with them. Then Dr Ofori Asante happened. And little do you know, I have every intention of asking him to adopt me... We're only 2 sessions in. He is patient, experienced and will know how best to deal with you according to your needs. I highly recommend him.
Love what I have become after speaking to him! More sessions to come from him!
Amazing therapist. Feels natural and grateful for these counseling sessions!
I appreciate Dr. Asantes time and listening ear. He has helped me in a great way and has provided encouragement and advice that I am very grateful for.
Dr. Asante is very helpful and listens to my concerns. He provides different ways to think about situations that I wouldn't have though of on my own. I highly recommend Dr. Asante.
He really listens to what I am saying and gives me tools to help me with my problem that really work.
Dr. Asante is organized, understanding, and has a sense of humor! I have found my sessions with him easier than I imagined. I only wish I had started sooner :)
I’ve been working with Dr. Asante for 3 weeks now. He’s very professional and clearly gifted at what he does. I’ve never experienced feeling so validated, accountable, and safe at the same time. I’m excited for every session with him.
Listens well and knows exactly where to go with it and what tools to give you.
