Therapy with Dr.Seyi Amosu

Therapy is the process of coming home to yourself: connecting with your intuition, cultivating trust for your instincts and developing compassion for your emotions. Together we ask the question: how can you get free?

My work is rooted in deep listening and collaboration. I offer a warm environment with space for all of who you are. Everything clients bring to our time— grief, anger, joy— is welcome, and essential. Much of my work is in supporting clients’ growth in their relationship with their own emotions. In the safety and privacy of our space, we can change habitual responses to vulnerability, such as avoidance, and develop tools for accessing emotions, self-soothing and communication in spaces outside of therapy.

The other piece of supporting clients in developing trust for their intuition is refining our analysis of our relationship with the world around us.

The things that happen in our lives are not separate from the things that happen in our world. Society confers on us expectations about what it means to be “normal” and uses shame to force us to conform. We ignore our own experiences and self-monitor to become “acceptable” to dominant culture. We are left feeling disconnected, ashamed and personally responsible for systemic issues.

I help clients deconstruct power in their lives. Encouraging clients to be critical of the history and culture that shapes us locates the source of pathology within society rather than within themselves.

Let’s get free y’all.
