Hello, my name is Titus Ogbuafor and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the
state of California. I have been in the Mental Health services for over 11 years. Have worked
with variety of populations in different settings which prepared me to be receptive to clients’
way of being, and collaborate with clients to unveil the barriers that impede their abilities to live a happier and healthier life.
Having worked with variety of populations and in different settings, I have had the opportunity to address several mental issues, emotional, behavioral and relational concerns such as depression, anxiety, trauma, parenting issues, personality disorders, and more. My professional training includes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solutions Focused Therapy, DBT, System, Person-Centered Therapy.
Therapy in reality has always been how can I provide relationship clients may use for their own personal growth. I believe for a therapist to be able to develop some meaningful relationships with clients, a therapist must be self-aware—the ability to know your own mind and how it works and learn how to tame it for happier and healthy life not only for yourself but for your clients as well. Empathy is another quality that makes an awesome therapist—ability to borrow your clients’ lens and see how they see their world, and accept them with dignity and respect. To be a good therapist is an ongoing process you can never have enough by the human enrichment that is embedded in the profession despite its hardships. Using client centered approach allows me to collaboratively work together with clients in journey that leads to self-discovering and development of individualized strategic treatment plans that address each client needs. I am a collective therapist—that means that I have many modalities in my tool box and modality used is determined by each client’s concerns with the aim to effectively create consistency, structure, and some predictability in life.
