About Ijeoma

From a very young age, Ijeoma received a calling and knew it was her duty to be a helper. This ideal resonates through all aspects of her life, especially in her desire to help those struggling within their relationships, as well as, internally/ individually, within themselves. With an objective ear and a strength-based eye, Ijeoma has a passion for reframing difficulties into stories of resilience. Ijeoma has also developed a professional understanding of the importance of processing topics surrounding race, culture, power, and privilege in order to create atmospheres of diversity and inclusion.

Ijeoma completed her undergraduate education at Temple University, where she earned a degree in Criminal Justice with a minor in Psychology. Subsequently, Ijeoma obtained her Master’s degree in Human Services with a focus in clinical counseling from Lincoln University. Since then, Ijeoma has worked with people across several populations and has tackled many areas of concerns with the individuals she has served. These populations and areas include but are not limited to:

  • Children, Adolescents, and Young Adults
  • Individuals Struggling with Grief, Loss, and/or Trauma
  • Family and Relationship Issues
  • Couples and Co-Caregiver issues
  • Parenting Issues
  • Group Therapy Needs
  • Poor or Ineffective Communication Styles
  • Self-Image and Self-Esteem Issues
  • Self-Care and Self-Regulation Needs.

Ijeoma has acquired training in Ecosystemic Structural Family Therapy (ESFT), which is utilized when working with families and caregivers. Ijeoma also utilizes Psychoeducational Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Solution-Focused Therapy when working with individuals and in group settings.

Ijeoma has gained extensive experience working in residential treatment facilities, specialized foster care agencies, group therapy settings, and in providing Family Based therapy. As such, Ijeoma has developed an expertise in helping children and adolescents who struggle with sexualized behaviors, trauma, and those in the foster care system.

Ijeoma has a particular passion for creating safe and supportive spaces for women who tackle the task of mothering. This passion led her to create MotheringSTINCTS, a group for mothering in all of its forms, to assist women in mothering roles, and to help mothers find balance in their everyday lives.

Ijeoma believes in healing hurt through strengthening connections and attachments while learning the skill of effective communication. As Anthony Robbins wisely says, “to effectively communicate, we must realize that we are all different in the way we perceive the world and use this understanding as a guide to our communication with others.” That ideal is at the heart of Ijeoma’s method to promote self-advocacy and strengthen relationships.
