Hello, I'm your Therapist

Ngozi Ojukwu

Hi my name is Ngozi[En-GO-Zee]. I’ve always been focused, driven, and passionate about helping others. I graduated from Cornell University with a BA in Psychology and the University of San Francisco with an MA in Counseling Psychology. As a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, I work with people helping them to address a multitude of issues.

I am a culturally sensitive psychotherapist interested in working with those who are ready to change. The process of therapy can often be difficult or painful, but I’m here to make it easier and guide you towards a happier, healthier you.

We will come up with a focused, practical plan for alleviating symptoms and moving closer to your desired goal. The issues I work with include, but are not limited to anxiety, depression, grief and loss, stress and anger management, trauma, multicultural issues, prejudice and experiences with microaggressions, and relationships.

My Clients

I work with individuals, children, couples, partnerships, and families to address a multitude of issues. We will come up with a focused, practical plan for alleviating symptoms and moving closer to your desired goal. The issues I work with include, but are not limited to anxiety, trauma, depression, grief and loss, stress and anger management, identity development, multicultural issues, prejudice and experiences with microaggressions, relationships, issues of aging, and life transitions.

This is all to say, I offer specific, competent skills for coping with life issues while remaining sensitive to various cultural, spiritual, racial and ethnic backgrounds. I am affirming of those who identify as LGBTQQIA and those in poly or non-monogamous relationships. Additionally, I maintain a kink/sex positive practice.

My Approach

I take a process-oriented approach to therapy. This means I bring focus to your decision making process. I ask questions to help you better understand yourself and your emotional process. We look at your experiences—past and present—to highlight how your emotions, thoughts and behaviors contribute to your internal and external conflict. I do this within a structure that considers culture, lifestyle and basic belief system. I integrate cognitive-behavioral, strength-based, systemic tools to help navigate challenges and come up with solutions. Basically, I believe in order to make different choices in the future, we have to understand and accept why we made choices in the past. My goal in therapy is to increase healthy thoughts and behaviors. I do this by creating a nonjudgmental, safe space where my clients can make positive changes within themselves and within their relationships.

I offer specific skills for coping with life issues while remaining sensitive to various cultural, spiritual, racial and ethnic backgrounds. I am affirming of those who identify as LGBTQQIA and those in poly or non-monogamous relationships. Additionally, I maintain a kink/sex-positive practice.
