A.M.A Counseling Services
Bldg. 1, Ste. 200-3
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and I provide individual and couple counseling services in Charlotte, NC. I was born in Ghana, located in West Africa. I migrated to the United States when I was 11 years old. It was a very difficult transition, coming to a new country, learning a new language and adjusting to a new culture while at the same time going through puberty! Therapy helped me to manage a great deal of anxiety that I experienced during that time period. It also helped me to discover my passion for helping others through difficult life situations.
Why I Love What I Do
I love what I do and empathy comes natural. I have a warm, compassionate yet direct and genuine style to helping people. I am open-minded and non-judgmental. I provide a safe environment which in turn encourages each person's individual life story to be told.
Benefits Of Services
- I believe therapy is a collaborative effort. My approach is client-centered, based on the belief that every individual brings a unique outlook on personal, family and cultural experiences. In our sessions, we will explore different areas in your life that you feel may be causing you distress. We will look at the way your family/cultural history has impacted your values, behaviors, and relationships in a safe environment. My hope is that together, you will gain insight that will promote awareness and lead to a positive change.
I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology at UNC Charlotte and my Masters degree Community Mental Health at Winthrop University.
