My Approach to Helping
Falling into the mental health field is definitely by a higher design and not of my own. My name is Femi Olukoya. Born and raised mostly in the United States and partly in Africa and Europe, I was born in downtown Houston and grew up without a father figure. This being my situation, my grandfather and some male figures in my extended family picked up the mantle and excelled in giving me a template I could run with.
After high school, I joined the U.S. Navy at 17 and was immediately shipped to Iraq. After I completed my four-year tour, I transitioned back into the civilian world and began my journey in the mental health field. From Psychiatric Technician to Licensed Clinical Therapist because of my experience with losing friends and shipmates to suicide and PTSD. I have been practicing in this field for 10 years. I have experienced a vast range of cultures in different countries and societies, and I pride myself on my multicultural practice. I am grateful for my experiences, good and bad, that have let me be the best husband, father, son, brother, relative, and friend I could possibly strive to be. I would love the chance to do the same for you in a safe, non-judgmental space.
