About Me

Hello! I am Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Georgia.  I’m looking forward to our work together.  It’s an incredible joy and honor to walk with you and to be a guide on the healing journey you have set out on.  Working together there is a lot of transformation that can happen in your life.  I’ve effectively helped many people and have specialized training to do so.  At the same time growth can be difficult and sometimes things get worse before they get better.  The outcome of therapy is largely dependent on your willingness and commitment to the process.

Life can present many challenges. Some can be years of trauma, painful grief, anxiety, depression, years of addictions and others are transitions, such as losing a career, lifestyle change, loss of a friend or family member or an identity crisis. While those challenges can seem overwhelming, there is hope!

Through the use of a Dialectic Behavioral Therapy approach we can explore the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors related to various situations and learn to alter them when needed for the better. Through this process it is possible to learn skills to use to better manage behaviors. While my primary theoretical orientations are Dialectic Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy, I recognize that each client is unique. I therefore, tailor counseling needs to each individual.

After graduating with my masters in Clinical Psychology, I went back for my marriage and family certification to enhance my knowledge base in counseling couples and family. In addition, should clients desire faith-based counseling, I do incorporate Christian related principles. Help is only a message away!

Adeola is a very wonderful counsellor who has always made herself available for us at very short notices. Listens empathetically and supports tremendously. I couldn’t have made this most difficult journey of my life without her help. We go to her feeling crap and leave the conversation always feeling much better. Love her work.

Adeola is a wonderful counselor! After each conversation I feel much more confident about my life and myself. Besides, it’s important for me to be able to speak to someone about my problems and she always helps me with understanding the problem and what can I do about. She helps me see things not only from my perspective but from professional view as well.
I had to stop for a while counseling when I thought things got better. However, after a couple months, things gotten worse I was able to ask Regain to get Adeola back, and now I am back counseling with her!
Thank you dear Adeola!

My partner and I worked with Adeola for two months to address a specific concern. The sessions we had with Adeola, as individuals and as a couple, were very helpful, and her use of worksheets led us to develop much more effective communication skills. Her knowledge and application of DBT is keen. She is a kind and compassionate counselor and I highly recommend her as a well versed, thorough, and attentive therapist for couples and individuals.

Adeola has made this a great experience so far! She is very professional and gives us a lot of helpful tools that my partner and I can apply to our daily life. I would recommend her to anyone that is looking to learn more effective ways of communication and conflict resolution.
