Rolake (pronounced raw-lah-keh) Odetoyinbo is licensed to provide mental health counseling in New York and New Jersey. She is passionate about immigrant acculturation, life transitions, LGBTQIA, and women’s issues. Her work as an AIDS activist, global health advocate and teacher has given her the unique opportunity to work sensitively and non-judgmentally across cultures, religion, identities, and abilities.
Rolake approaches therapy from a feminist perspective. She supports her clients as they examine and understand the roles they play in their family, workplace, and social systems. She helps clients to make the changes that they desire by holding up the mirror and echoing back their words so they can see and hear themselves.
Coming from the non-profit world, Rolake adopts a rights based and client centered approach to her work. Her clients include people with anxiety, childhood trauma, relationship problems, and people living with chronic illnesses like HIV infection and sickle-cell anemia. She offers great support for people in nontraditional relationships and partnerships.
Rolake only provides tele-therapy at this time. She sees clients aged 18 and older and does not provide tele-therapy for crisis situations.
