Hello,My name is Ezra Odioko ### I obtained my Masters degree in social work from grandvalley state university since then, I've worked in many different clinical settings. I am a passionate and empathetic therapist with strong counseling abilities and an understanding of interpersonal familial relationships. I have experience leading clients through the following: **Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) **This helps me in treating clients with dysfunctional thinking that leads to maladaptive behaviors, mental illness, and negative emotion. It focuses on thoughts and behaviors. This type of therapy is often used to treat individuals with Bipolar disorder, Borderline personality disorder,anxiety disorder and more. ### **Existential Therapy (part of the Humanistic-existential Approach): **This helps me in guiding my clients in reaching their full potential. The existential therapy is a part of the Humanistic-existential Approach which helps clients manage their condition, including all the givens of human existence: isolation, meaninglessness, mortality, and freedom.  ### **Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT): **This helps me in treating severe and chronic mental health conditions, including: borderline personality disorder, suicidal ideation, self-harming, eating disorders and PTSD. ### **Psychoanalytic or Psychodynamic Therapy: **This gives me the platform to explore clients unconscious feelings or thoughts and the impact of the past on their present. ###  **Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Therapy (AEDP): This approach helps me in **exploring clients difficult emotional and relational experiences to develop coping tools that allows the client to function better. **Anger Management: **This approach helps me teach my clients to identify stressors, remain calm and handle tense situations in a positive and constructive manner. ### **Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT): **This uses emotions as a source of healing and insight. It is especially effective for moderate depression, issues of childhood abuse and couples in the middle of a conflict. This approach and many more are applied effectively in my engagement with clients. Through clinical experience, compassion, and empathy I support and assist those willing to make a positive difference in their lives. I provide safe and supportive space, to work side by side to overcome traumas, and barriers. I am fully committed to listen and offer my best professional practices to help you. I guarantee you can count on my empathetic and person-centered approach towards every conversation we take part on. Thank you for taking the first step and for allowing me to be part of this very important journey. Look forward to meeting you!
