Hanifa Akpe, LCPC | Therapist


The decision to seek individual therapy can be an uncomfortable one for many. As a clinician, I deeply respect my clients for the strength and resilience that it takes to seek the help of a professional. Engagement in therapy is a journey, a process- one that I would like to embark on with you.

As a client, it is important for you to know that you are not alone. The therapeutic process is a unique and collaborative one in which you are the expert of your experience. I will help equip you with tools to enhance your experience, while working toward your goals. I believe this is achieved through a strong client/therapist relationship, evidenced based interventions and appreciation for diversity. I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy techniques while working from a Person-Centered lens. As a clinician, it is important for me to see each person as an individual, using a compassionate and nonjudgmental approach. I am also a strong proponent that one size does not fit all. Thus, treatment planning is a joint effort in which you and I work together to develop and cater treatment specific to you and your needs.

You have taken the first difficult step in searching for a helping professional in hopes of meeting your overall goals. Together you and I will travel your journey to conquer your challenges toward living your best experience.
