Olubukola “Bukie” Ajayi – Licensed Professional Counselor Associate (Supervised by Stephanie Mukoro Palmer-Ikuku, NCC, LPC-S)

I believe as humans we encounter different experiences in the journey of life; some of those experiences give us a better outlook on life while some make life a bit more challenging to navigate. We can choose to weave beautiful fabrics with the colorful threads that life offers us. And I think that everyone can experience healing from their past and mental wellness that can lead to a thriving existence.

Seeking help in a world where self-sufficiency is the daily message, I offer a counseling relationship free of judgment and full of empathy and unconditional positive regard that encourages clients to embrace their true selves and find inner strength. A relationship where each individual’s words are acknowledged and their feelings are validated can enable the development of meaningful coping, interpersonal communication, and social skills.
