I am a professional counselor/therapist (LPC) licensed in the state of Texas with over 6 years experience providing clinical mental health assistance to diverse groups of individuals and ethnicities and have also worked for over 10 years as an academic/success coach providing educational and career guidance.
My counseling philosophy is to build a meaningful therapist-client relationship of mutual trust and acceptance as I help you navigate the challenges you're experiencing.

My primary therapeutical orientations are cognitive behavior therapy, solution focused and choice theories. But I am able to integrate other theories base on the situation at hand.
Life is full of challenges, therefore you need not walk it alone. As your therapist, I want to get to know you, build a meaningful client-therapist relationship with you and be that individual who will come alongside to listen and provide the needed assistance to help you navigate life's challenges and live fully.

An excellent listener, considerate, and attentive, I couldn’t imagine a better telehealth therapist. He helped me through an especially hard time, and I expect to hear his calming voice in my head forever. He seems passionate about helping people, I’m glad he’s doing it!

Wilfred has been great so far. We haven’t had a chance to speak via chat or video chat yet, but he has been a great help already.

Dr. Manyango was incredible. He was very understanding and very practical. He listened intently, always remembered the details of my particular issues and very often generously went beyond our allotted time if he felt that I needed more time to fully express myself. His wealth of experience as a person and his own spiritual background (only when I asked him for that perspective) were assets in our work together while always being respectful and honoring how I would prefer to approach an issue. He would ask probing questions or answer questions that I would ask him if I needed his personal take, or he just listens to you as you workout your own 'stuff' outloud, He adapted to me and really held space for me when I needed. He brings a uniquely diverse and cultural understanding of life's challenges that I was seeking and appreciated. He helped me a lot. Highly, highly recommended.
