Professional statement

Chidimma Ozor Commer's specialty is treating mental health concerns through individual therapy in a holistic manner, emphasizing trauma work utilizing various options of evidence-based psychotherapy. In addition, she hopes to come alongside Black women, Black folks, and members of the LGBTQ+ community in their healing journeys. If you do not identify with one of these social identities, she respectfully asks, you allow her to serve these historically underserved communities. Moreover, at this time, she is not providing group, family, or couples therapy. In an effort to build a trusting relationship, or therapeutic relationship/alliance, she requests that all clients are willing to schedule a weekly appointment for six (6) weeks. You both can check in together at the end of the six weeks to see where you are and where you would like to go.

Additionally, currently and for the foreseeable future, I am only seeing clients via telehealth.

Wednesday and Thursday, 10am to 5pm ET; Saturday 10am to 1pm ET (admin only); message to schedule. At this time, she schedules weekly or two weeks at a time. If you need consistent scheduling, it may be helpful to schedule with another therapist.

Message to clients

Good day!

I am so glad you stopped by here.

Therapy, simply talking to a person that is committed to coming alongside you with empathy, compassion, and understanding, is an important tool that can be a stepping stone to continued healing. One of the reasons I decided to commence a second Master’s degree, this time in social work, was because I realized there are not enough Black woman therapists. This is problematic for several reasons, Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC)/People of Color (POC)/People of the Global Majority (PGM) tend to have disparities when attempting to access mental health services compared to non-BIPOC/POC/PGM. Many in this population are already reluctant to seek mental health treatment especially if their practitioner is not culturally humble and aware of specific issues that BIPOC/POC/PGM contend with. Moreover, there’s still significant stigma and judgment about mental health concerns and I am doing my part to attempt to smash the stigma.

I hope that you will schedule your first 50-minute therapy session, or conscious + aligned conversation, so that we can start to build our therapeutic alliance.

And remember, you are worth talking through your life experiences so that you can heal, grow, and blossom.

joyfully yours,

Chidimma Ozor Commer, LLMSW – Clinical Practice, MSW, MA
