The following are personal remarks from the provider: Olufemi Y. Sharp.
“I’m so glad you have chosen to visit my website. Good job to you for being open to trying a different approach to mental health counseling. I am here to help you achieve treatment success however that is real for you. It's a journey of awakening to a new freedom, a new joy and a new happiness. It’s about overcoming and becoming and stepping more into your true authentic essence self. Overcoming painful memories and issues are stored in the muscles and tissues and not always easy to work through. You are not alone. I am here to support and hold space for you.
I too have had to face the sharp points... the screams of life. Family dysfunction. Broken relationships. Major loss and trauma. As a black girl child I was taught to internalize self-hatred by overt and covert messages in the home and by a society steeped in systemic racism. I was emotionally imprinted, mentally mapped into cultural dysfunction. Trauma, setbacks, loss and shame was my burden. I had to fight the limitations of my upbringing daring to go against the gravity of a marginalized false identity. I had to struggle to get here to gain entry into the amazing life I have today that historically told me I was not worthy of love or capable of phenomenal success.
Life can be a long protracted path in ups, downs, twists and turns in the transformative healing process toward self-love. In unburdening, in becoming, in stepping more into courage, abundance, confidence, humility, determination and the truth about who you are in the becoming...
Whatever the reason you are seeking whole-person healing and mental health wellness, one thing I know for sure you will be given by me a toolbox of skills, strategies, rituals and tools to unfold the magical quality and beauty within you."
I support you.
