About me

Welcome to Better Help! I want to commend you for taking this challenging step to create the change that you want. My name is Wale Adegbenle, and I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of New York. I earned my Master of Social Work degree, specializing in Health and Substance Abuse, from Stony Brook University School of Social Welfare in 2003. I am also a Certified Case Manager and trained as a geriatric case manager. I have worked with many individuals and families, who have a variety of personal issues such as depression/anxiety, stress, trauma/abuse, family problems, addictions of all kinds, relationships/parenting, and many more in different settings.

My counseling style is relationship-centered, compassionate, focused, and validating. I pride myself on being a patient mental health provider and a good listener that will meet you where you are and help you to set realistic and actionable goals for treatment. My approach combines Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Person-Centered Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Strengths-Based counseling techniques.

I am here to support and help you navigate through the things that you’ve indicated are difficult for you right now. My goal is to offer you a safe space to be open without fear of judgment while providing you the guidance, support, and counseling that you are seeking. I take my job seriously and honor the time you choose to share with me.

I look forward to connecting with you soon and navigating through this journey of support together.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Adewale (Wale) Adegbenle. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Regain might be different.

Wale is a pleasure to work with. He employs practical techniques that leads to better communication and actual positive outcomes.

Written on Feb 02, 2024 after therapy with Adewale (Wale) for 4 weeks on issues concerning relationship

Wale has provided myself and, as or more importantly, my husband— a way of opening up communication in our marriage, through his key questions during therapy and easygoing, unrushed manner. The “homework” he’s given us has offered much perspective for us both. What I also learned is that there’s still much work to do in this endeavor, so I’m grateful for Wale for being our therapist.

Therapist is excellent.

Written on Dec 18, 2021 after therapy with Adewale (Wale) for 2 months on issues concerning relationship

Wale has truly been a blessing during a difficult time. His authentic approach made my husband and I feel very comfortable immediately which was very important as we shared and explored extremely private aspects of our life with him. He has made it a priority to do weekly check-ins between sessions and has also been very accommodating with our schedules. Through our interacts it is quite evident that he truly values the work that he does!!
