Hi, I'm Rasheed Ojerinde. I am a licensed mental health therapist with 6 years of experience providing direct mental health and behavioral counseling. I have worked with individuals ages five to late adulthood with a variety of presenting issues.
As a dedicated bicultural millennial therapist with a passion for helping others, I like to approach the therapeutic relationship with a keen sensitivity and respect for multicultural factors. I recognize the importance of understanding and respecting differences in beliefs, values, and attitudes when working with clients from different cultural and social backgrounds.
My experience varies across many settings, as I have provided therapy services at community mental health agencies, state clinics, general hospitals, and day treatment facilities. My specialty and passion for therapy lies in exploring intimacy/trust issues, ADHD symptoms, emotional regulation, anxiety disorders, and depression symptoms. It is my experience that therapy can be most effective from an integrative and holistic approach. My therapy style and approach draws influence from Solution-Focused, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Feminist Therapy, Psychoanalytic Therapy, and Structural Therapy. I see therapy as a collaborative effort where our knowledge and skills are combined to create unique solutions to your challenges. I hope that our therapeutic relationship will foster a genuine, trusting, and productive relationship. With evidence-based theories and techniques, my goal is to help you better understand your unconscious self, find peace, and be more fulfilled as a person, partner, and professional.
It takes a lot of courage and will power to take that first step towards a more fulfilling life but I believe you are ready and so am I, lets get started!

Rasheed was incredible in getting to know me and asking the tough questions for me to unlock what was preventing me from thinking differently. He is very caring but holds you accountable. I highly recommend him to help with any anxiety issues, I feel amazing now!

Rasheed talked me through some difficult thoughts while also being very honest. He is very prompt at responding to messages and thoughts. He helped me reflect and find out a lot about myself better than any therapist I’ve talked to before. He’s great at leading the conversation as well if you don’t know what direction to discuss. I definitely recommend Rasheed!
