I have a fairly diverse background in work and education including 20 years in the business arena in retail and financial services. In 2000 I went back to grad school again and moved into higher education teaching and the mental health field. I have worked specifically in substance use disorder in both residential and out patient facilities and I am knowledgable about most substances both licit and illicit that often get abused. My MA in psychology was focused on Binge Eating Disorder which I struggled with in childhood and began self-medicating with cannabis by the time I was 14 years old. I found pills in my late teens and crystal meth in my early 20's which brought me to my knees by my mid 20's. I met my first psychotherapist at 25 and she turned my life around, that was when I made up my mind what my life goal would be.

Life is STRESSFUL !! Are you feeling overwhelmed, alone, and unable to meet all the demands of life? Everyone feels this way at times. But you are not alone and help, care and compassion are only a phone call away. I enjoy assisting people who are dealing with one or more of the stresses life can bring including anxiety, depression, and relationship and parenting issues. I work best with issues of stress and family dysfunction, relationship issues, self-defeating behavior patterns, and parenting issues with teens/oppositional children. Ideally, clients I work with are willing to express their feelings, and explore their situations in a safe, accepting environment to achieve the peace of mind they seek. My specialty is my ability to understand and get to the heart of my client's concerns. I assist clients in sorting through their pain and confusion. Then I present a selection of strategies and pathways to resolve or manage their difficulties. Clients choose the approach that best suits them. I approach therapy as a cooperative partnership in which I work with individuals, couples, and families to reduce pain/stress and increase peace of mind, harmony, and level of functioning.

Seeking strength, understanding, and a path forward? I'm not your typical therapist. I've walked the walk that you have, not just once, but twice. As a former Marine and law enforcement officer, I know firsthand the pressures, traumas, and unique challenges faced by those in service and beyond. Now, I leverage my experience and clinical expertise to guide individuals grappling with depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and the invisible wounds of trauma.

There is so much power, and strength in one's voice, and I am here to listen. Imagine being able to release the burden that you have been carrying for years. My goal is to empower those who are struggling with diagnoses such as (but not limited to) depression, anxiety, and PTSD, find effective coping strategies. It is important for me to hear your story, and encourage you to uncover your greatest potential. My passion is to help you to identify your obstacles, while empowering you to find healthy ways to address them.

Hi, I'm Trish Do you ever feel like you are your own worst enemy? Or perhaps that you will never have the life you want and have dreamed of living? Reaching out for therapy takes both courage and humility, and I am honored to join you on your journey. We all have blind spots and often fail to give ourselves credit for the strengths and qualities that our uniquely ours. As a therapist, I will promise to help bring out your best, so that you can make the changes needed to welcome joy into your life. I bring a ton of life experience to my practice, having faced the challenges of establishing careers- yes, more than one- raising a family of four children and maintaining a very, very, very long marriage. I have lived in eight states and six countries, and count several different nationalities among my family members. My early career was in the business world, including a Fortune 10 company as a human resources manager and recruiter. I transitioned into non-profit leadership and have sat on several boards of directors. I gain a sense of meaning by accompanying you on your life journey, especially during challenging times. My greatest satisfaction is to help you to remove the obstacles that are keeping you from the joy of living and loving.

My name is Dr. Olushola Bakare, and I’m a board-certified Psychotherapist. I attended St Joseph College. I’m happy to help you today with any of your concerns. I enjoy empowering people and digging out their strengths. I don't ask fish to fly, neither do I ask birds to swim. I respect everyone's strengths and help my client recognize them. I love to highlight my client's strengths. I offer a safe, warm, therapeutic, judgment-free space for Adults (18+) and Older Adults (65+). I am sorry, but I do not accept clients who pay in cash. Also, every late cancellation or no-show accrues a late charge fee. It is my ethical duty to officially terminate our therapeutic relationship when it is reasonably clear that the client is no longer beneficent, services are no longer required, counseling no longer serves the client's needs and/or interests or Dr. Olushola Bakare, LMFT limits do not allow the provision of further counseling services. It is the policy of Dr. Olushola Bakare, LMFT, that our professional relationship will be terminated after a one-month consistent lapse of meeting with a client. Dr. Olushola Bakare, LMFT, will attempt to notify you of this change in status as soon as possible after one month. My ethical duty is to identify, be available, and care for current clients. It could feel awkward for our relationship to end, yet it is not meant to be discourteous in any way.
