Hello! My name is Ngozi [Ehn-Go-ZEE]. I’m a Marriage & Family Therapist intern. I graduated from Cornell University with a bachelors in Psychology and the University of San Francisco with a Masters in Counseling Psychology. I am a culturally sensitive psychotherapist interested in working with those who are ready to work on and for themselves. The process can often be difficult or painful, but I’m willing to guide you towards a happier, healthier you.
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.
I take a solution focused, process oriented approach to therapy. This means I bring focus to all aspects of yourself and your experiences to gain a deeper understanding of your internal and external conflict. I do this within a structure that considers culture, lifestyle and basic belief system. Within that framework, I integrate, cognitive behavioral, strength based, systemic tools to help navigate challenges. My goal in therapy is to increase healthy thoughts and behaviors. I do this by creating a nonjudgmental, safe space where my clients can redefine their “healthy” in order to make positive changes within themselves and within their relationships.
As an intern, I work under a licensed supervisor, Dorothy Easton, MFT License # 27782.
