Professional statement

Olayinka Akeju is a Licensed Professional Counselor located in Burlington, NJ. Olayinka supports teenagers, young adults, and adults. She provides individuals, couples, and families by offering compassionate mental health services that center around tapping into internal strengths. Many of Olayinka’s clients face high levels of distress because of life situations, whether that’s a complicated relationship, alcohol or drug addiction, or a mental health condition.

Olayinka practices a therapy modality called Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which is a thoughts-based therapy modality that shows the strong connection between thoughts, feelings, and actions. She teaches clients how to change their thought patterns towards positive, self-affirming thoughts, which may result in mood changes. She also has training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy and play therapy, making her a versatile and skilled therapist. 

Olayinka earned a Master’s degree in Psychology Counseling and has nearly 19 years of experience as a therapist. Her goal is to help clients find true happiness, which most commonly comes when people can be their authentic selves and take control of their own narratives.

Message to clients

It's true that talking about yourself with someone else is a daunting task..I understand and can relate!

You bring your narratives about the things you have experienced, I listen and find ways to challenge, and reflect back to you what your conceptualizations look like to me, utilizing an ecclectic approach and finding the best modalitities that will be most effective for your presenting issues. Together, we navigate through the details, we also honor and respect your authenticity as we engage actively while working through everyone of them, because in all of their intricacies and complexities, everyone's narratives are most important.
