Hey…Welcome…I’m so glad you made it here. Go ahead and take a deep breath…let your shoulders drop…release your tongue from the roof of your mouth…let yourself be present for a moment and appreciate yourself for taking this first step. I bet it feels good to release and let yourself just be. I know you’ve been holding on to all this stuff (the hurt, the pain, the shame, the heartache, the anger, the frustration, the disappointment) for so long it can be hard to just let it go. You may even be thinking what would my life look like without this stuff? Who would I be without this stuff? Imagine what it would be like to really let go…to free yourself. Imagine what it would be like to experience inner peace…to be the best version of yourself. I imagine that it would look on you…like the perfect lighting that makes your skin glow just right in that selfie…like a fresh line up or perfect hair do with a new fit. Imagine what it would be like to look in the mirror and truly see yourself for the first time and to actually love what you see.
This is my hope for you! For you to experience a new kind of freedom & mental health. Freedom to define yourself. Freedom from the restraints of society or people/situations which don’t have your best interest at heart. Freedom to be your true self. Trauma therapy & counseling may be part of the solution you need to assist you in achieving your mental health goals.
My goal is to help you move past whatever has you stuck and let go of the pain & anger you may be holding on to so you can create an optimal life. Ask yourself: Who would I be if society did not tell me who I should be? If you are ready for the answer click here to see how we can help.
The Akoben is the adinkra symbol for the war horn. The war horn is used as a call to action, a call to take up arms and prepare for battle. The Akoben represents the purest intentions of the work I do in counseling, fighting for the minds and spirit of our people. Everything in this modern society is meant to indoctrinate you into believing that you are not enough, flawed, or somehow sub-optimal. But, what if we defined our own world view and challenged this worldview that does not serve our best interest.
Akoben Counseling gives you the tools and support to define your own world view, to create an optimal life and experience.
