SUPPORTING YOUR DESIRE FOR GROWTH AND CHANGE

Morolake Odetoyinbo, LMHC, LPC

Life transitions are challenging. Reentering the workforce, returning to school, breakups, divorce, immigration or testing positive for a chronic infection can make us question our identity and/or self-worth. Navigating academic, social, cultural, or financial systems outside of our frame of reference puts physical and emotional pressures on us. You and I will work together to mitigate the effects of these transitions.

ABOUT ME

Morolake (pronounced mo-raw-lah-keh) is a Yoruba name that means "I have found a treasure to care for."

I am an activist, advocate, researcher, writer, trainer, public speaker and adjunct college professor. I founded a non-profit, ran support groups for people living with HIV, belong to the LGBTQ community, and received multiple awards for my work.

I studied Dramatic Arts at Obafemi Awolowo University (Great Ife!). Learnt activism in Treatment Action Campaign, South Africa. Studied HIV science and treatment literacy at the African American HIV University, a project of the Black AIDS Institute in LA. I learnt the art of negotiating and the power of my voice from global AIDS activists. From my African sisters and warrior queens, I understood the power of community mobilization. I found strength, love, pain, dance, music, resilience, organized chaos and jollof rice in Nigeria.


Twenty years after working in global health advocacy and non-profit, I came to St Lawrence University in Canton, New York to study mental health. In America, I learnt to embrace the fullness of me. I have experience working on women's issues, LGBTQ concerns and HIV/AIDS. My interests include immigrant acculturation and women's health and rights. I look forward to supporting your mental health needs by identifying the trauma and eliminating the unhealthy drama.

               MY APPROACH

My goal is to support you to take back your power. I will hold space and illuminate as you examine, negotiate and own your strength and identity.

My role as your therapist is to support your desire for growth and change; I am not here to fix or help you. I embrace feminist therapy and support my clients to identify and understand the systems they are part of. I will hold up the mirror while you examine your image, and I will echo your words so you can hear yourself. I will build a safe, respectful, nonjudgmental, honest, culturally appropriate, affirming stage for you to meet, uncover, practice, understand, love and embody your best self.
