Nnamdi Okafor

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC)

I am honored to meet you today, and I am excited to be with you on this journey!  My name is Nnamdi, and I’m a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor. As your therapist, I value our relationship, as it is of utmost importance on our journey together.  I utilize a trauma-informed, strength-based, person-centered, here-and-now approach to explore the depths of your mind, body and spirit. We will explore the roots of our emotions, uncovering and revealing the core beliefs, thoughts and feelings in order to grow in self-awareness. I will empower you through self-awareness and self-determination--leading you to a renewed mind and confidence. I will encourage and motivate you to activate your greatest strengths!


Along my path, I have discovered that I have an incredible gift of encouraging, coaching and motivating others.  Through this, I’ve accrued extremely valuable experience journeying with the following individuals:

  • Children, adolescents, young adults, parents and families

  • Individuals who are looking to activate and understand their feelings, thoughts, emotions and behaviors through unbiased, safe and trauma informed exploration and reflection

  • Those who are looking for clarity and insight on behavioral patterns, thoughts and core beliefs developed in early childhood within their family of origin and environment

  • Those who are curious and have a desire to activate their “best self” through self-awareness and non-judgmental exploration through a clinical and/or faith-based approach

  • Individuals who desire to overcome and BREAKTHROUGH the bondages of depression, anxiety and mood disorders.  

  • Individuals in underserved populations, particularly, those who identify as Black or African American, who are pursuing a greater understanding of themselves, their culture and overall identity

  • Individuals who desire meaningful, fluid and healthy relationships with peers, family and significant others through use assertive communication and effective boundaries

  • Those who desire to improve their decision-making and problem-solving skills

During my downtime, I like to get into a variety of activities!  Amongst my favorites are gaming, streaming, creating content, and watching anime and sports!  I’m a very social person who values relationships, so I also enjoy “game night,” and having a get-together with my friends.
