Akila Osakwe, MA, LMHC
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and work collaboratively with individuals and families from diverse backgrounds.
My focus in therapy is client centered and holding a space of non judgement and unconditional positive regard. My passion is helping clients to achieve a level of resolution through challenging situations. I focus on individual strengths while working with life difficulties throughout the therapeutic process, and also to encourage the client to go at his/her individual pace in therapy. I am passionate about the emotional healing process, and believe that a healthy, peaceful mind fosters whole body wellness, which is why my therapeutic process also focuses on the many systems that impact overall health.
I have worked in tribal health for over ten years and specialize in the areas of complex trauma, grief, teen issues, anxiety and depression. Therapeutic modalities that I employ include CBT, Solutions Focused Therapy, Trauma Focused Therapy and Mindfulness and Compassion Therapy. I believe in reflective journeying with my clients and working together to identity solutions and finding resolve towards living a healthy and harmonious life.
