Hello beautiful you, welcome to my website.

My name is Olufemi Sharp. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor

Sometimes you know it helps to shout, scream, cry and talk things through. My aim is to actively listen and provide a non-judging space that allows you to explore, unpack and work through new and old issues and challenges being experienced. Confinement at home may make it difficult to cope with emotions in familiar ways, and close confinement with loved ones can bring on additional interpersonal stress exasperating relationship problems which were previously existing. I understand these difficulties and can guide you to new healthy ways of coping. Do not be alone in this, I am here for you.
My expertise is treating anxiety, depression, working with teenage angst, grief & loss, affirming LGBTQ+ counseling, life transitions, trauma Informed treatment, IFS parts work, disordered eating, body image issues, self-care practices, intimacy-communication skills, substance use treatment, individual and couples counseling, including polyamory, anger-management,
My primary clients are adults, couples and teens 12 years and up. I effort to help people build an effective therapeutic toolbox that contains healthy life skills and strategies sufficient to solve unique and specific problems experienced. I provide supportive counseling to family members and caregivers of gay and queer teenagers and facilitate effective support systems. Parents or caregivers of teenagers are required to be involved (somewhat) in the sessions and the therapeutic process. Studies show that working with a child alone in therapy independent of caregiver influence produces low therapy results. We want to set the child and the family up for success in whatever way success is defined for you.
My services are strongly founded on establishing a safe, warm, nonjudgmental, respectful and authentic space conducive to support and care for the individual's healing, growth and transformation in mind-body and spirit. Learning to take time each day for relaxation, honest self-reflection, exercise, and other self-care measures is what strengthens each of us to love and live life more fully.
At certain times in our lives we need to tell our story, to have someone actively listen without blame, shame or judgment. To provide insight and wisdom. Carrying the weight of negative self-talk and heavy emotions is burdensome, it's draining and adds wear and tear on the mind-body and autonomic system. I invite you to share your story with me to release the burdens of the past and walk toward a new freedom.
I can hold space for you.
My counseling approach is effective, I draw on integrative, alternative and evidenced-based therapy practices that have outstanding results. They include: Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral therapy, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive, Dialectical Behavioral, Motivational Interviewing, Trauma-Informed treatment, Somatic-Based therapy, Internal Family Systems (parts work) and Integral yoga. Other alternative treatments include: Energy healing, Chakra clearing, Tapping, Breath work, Source healing meditations, eclectic spirituality and ancestral-spirit work.
As you do the work in therapy and stay willing and open to the process of positive change amazing events, life transitions and healing transformations will come to pass for you and in your relationships.
Healing and Transformation
I have been described as a healing presence with warm authenticity with progressive, nonjudgmental understanding and easy to talk to. I help individual's move past anxiety, depression, unhealthy relationships, social awkwardness and fear by learning the patterns of the mind. My goal is to gently move individual's toward all that makes them unique, creative, special and successful however success is defined for you. I help the people I work with find healthy, loving connections with themselves and others, moving past feelings of isolation and separateness. One of my key approaches in every session is to be totally present, to actively listen with intention to identify thoughts and behavioral patterns that keep people stuck.
I strive to create therapeutic conditions that empower individuals, couples, teenagers and families to connect more deeply with the best and fullness of who they are, as each of us will define that for ourselves.
I want to thank you again for visiting my website. I hope to see or talk with you soon. Stay safe and,
