About Me

I believe that each one of us has the answers to our problems inside of us. However, sometimes we need someone on our journey to help us unlock those answers by asking the right questions---things you may not have considered, presenting proven strategies, and psychoeducation. Although you will make strides with the energy and effort you give, the number one predictor that one will improve is the quality of the therapeutic relationship. I hope to provide a place of warmth, compassion, and acceptance in which you feel empowered and free to approach any concerns. I am here to help you along on your journey.

I am a licensed mental health counselor in the state of Florida. I graduated from Florida Atlantic University with an Educational Specialist degree in Mental Health Counseling. I also earned a Master's of Art from Roosevelt University. Over the last 7 years, the bulk of my experience has been working with children and adolescents along with their families. The theoretical framework that I usually draw from is Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy. I also apply Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing Techniques as needed. I address trauma, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, interpersonal skills/social skills, ADHD, self-esteem, anger, problem-solving, and decision-making. I also have experience with parent management training and substance abuse. In conjunction with therapy, I believe that exercise, proper nutrition, and good sleep hygiene are an integral part of overcoming mental health concerns.

Change, even positive change can be challenging and uncomfortable. I hope to provide the necessary support as a champion of change.

I worked w Chinyere for about two years or so. I was extremely resistant for a long time but in the last year some of the messages and tools for a better life really sunk in. While I am far from all the way back in the swing I have a path forward and things are starting to feel more normal and more like real me and happier me from before an onslaught of crappy life events. Am very thankful for Chinyere's help.

I have had a few sessions with Chinyere, I appreciate her dedication to her clients. I feel like I have come leaps and bounds in the short time I have been speaking with her. She is easy to talk to, friendly and very resourceful! Would happily recommend her to anyone.

Chinyere (Chin as she was introduced to me) is the best therapist I have found in my adult life. I have been seeing her for almost a year and it feels like I’m having a weekly chat with a friend about things and she has the greatest methods to guide myself through the process. I am someone with a complex traumatic childhood and have a lot of present life unavoidable daily stressors. Chin has helped me develop skills I wasn’t privileged with developing as a child as an adult functioning in real time life. She has been extremely patient with me finding the words and strength to vocalize a lot of my past and I never knew just saying it out loud to someone can help. Having her as my therapist has helped me feel heard. My family is mixed and diverse and packed full of generational trauma and abuse. She has helped me to navigate and understand the effects of their unhealed pasts and the importance of working on myself. I am very grateful for finding her last year. Thank you for hiring the best ❤️

Before being matched with Chinyere, I felt that therapy wasn't for me. Chinyere changed that. She is proactive- going out of her way to deliver truly helpful information and tips. She is relatable- always sharing content that is easy to understand and apply. She is flexible and accommodating. I have learned so much from Chinyere, and I'm grateful for the positive impact she has had.

Working with Ms. T was absolutely amazing, I was able to get farther in my healing in just a few weeks than I was in months with another therapist. The only reason I left was because I moved out of state! I stayed with her for almost 6 months and was able to learn a lot about myself. She's very no nonsense without being mean about it, just gives you the gentle truth without frills. Highly recommend!
