About me

I have worked in the mental health field with many populations with wide ranging issues that often intersect. I have been a licensed provider of mental health care for many years and I have worked directly with people who live with major mental illness (I.e. Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar disorder etc.) and addictions. I have also worked with families to help maintain structure in order to enhance systemic functioning.

I am attuned to the complexities of life and I approach each person with individualized care that is self-directed with the assistance of an experienced and compassionate guide. I work from an existential humanist base which emphasizes personal choice and empowerment. I am sensitive to how trauma can complicate transitions, wellness and overall functioning.

I look forward to the opportunity to meet you whenever you are ready.

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

Mr. Oluokun has made me recognize the importance of my responsibilities to self and why I feel the way I do. He identified where my concerns are and made me feel comfortable enough to be honest in my mental state and feelings. At first I procrastinated when I initially registered with betterhelp, but when I couldn't get an appointment with anybody for at least two to three months, I gave this service a try until my appointment with a psychiatrist happens. The best thing I even did. I reach out to my church Therapist and marriage councilor. It is so important to reach out in these trying times. Mr. Oluokun has been an instrumental part of me seeking help and being comfortable in wanting that help.

He helps me put pieces together by reflecting on my life at pace that is effective but manageable. I’m constructing a healthier version of myself!
