Sylvia Akingbade

(LPC)

About Me

My name is Sylvia Akingbade, and I am a licensed professional counselor in Texas. I have been in the mental health field for over 12 years. I have worked with children, adults, and those that are elderly or disabled. Over the years, as I sat with these individuals each day, I realized that we all need someone to process situations as we all experience life. I have come to accept that this is my purpose in life. I feel as long as we have that one person we can connect with, there is hope that we can overcome obstacles.
My approach combines cognitive behavior therapy and person-centered therapy. With cognitive behavior therapy, the process involves a collaboration between the client and the therapist. I use this method because it allows us to work together towards your goals. With person-centered therapy, it will enable the client to set the tone for the session so that you can get the best out of our sessions.
During all our sessions, I want you to know that this is a place where you can feel safe and free to speak as you wish. I believe in empowering each person to get and keep control over their lives. I want you to know that you are in charge of the therapy session, and I am just here to guide you. I feel like if we focus on you as a person, we will find out the problem. It takes a lot of courage to open this door, so I encourage you to be honest and continue walking through this door to get what you came here to learn.
I look forward to connecting with you!
