15 years ago my hair fell out. I had a big bald spot on the back of my head. The dermatologist said it was caused by stress. I was 24.

Family, friends, work, relationships . . . there are so many responsibilities in life that it can be overwhelming. I know what that's like. Maybe you've carried the stress for so long that you're at your breaking point. Or maybe the way you were juggling everything doesn't work anymore. Or perhaps a relationship at home or at work is really stressful and challenging which makes the rest of life hard.

That's why we're here. I formed The Ladipo Group in 2004 because there wasn't a place for Blacks and African-Americans to get quality services from someone who truly knows and experiences our stress. We know what it's like to struggle in our marriages and relationships but are too scared to tell people because we're the "model couple." We know what it's like to feel tired and overwhelmed without having someone to lift us up.

Because we know what it's like we want to help to make it better and easier for you. Our staff uses all of their education, training, and experience to show you new ways to live your life. It may be talking differently so your partner will listen, saying no to some things and people so you can say yes to others, or sorting through old feelings and experiences in order to clear the way for new ones.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

For so long the Black community has thought of therapy as "only for crazy people or White people." But it's not.

Therapy is for people who want to learn how to be in their world in a way that feels good to them. It's for people who want stronger marriages and relationships. It's for people who want to feel more confident and secure at work and school. It's for people like me and like you.

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

We know that you're busy and need to 'keep it moving' so we offer sessions on a weekly, biweekly, or monthly basis.

Some people choose to come less often (biweekly or monthly) for a longer session (90-minutes). Others choose weekly sessions for 50-minutes. We make recommendations based on your goals and what you what to achieve. However we know that schedules and finances may be considerations so the option is yours.

Most people see us for 10 - 12 sessions.
