(PhD, LPC-S, NCC)

About Me

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.

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!

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.
