Nigerian American Therapist Directory 

Often times potential clients reach out to me to provide therapeutic services, but they are not in the state where I am licensed. One of the main reasons why clients reach out is because I am Nigerian American. 

In my desire to help my community, I created this directory where clients can potentially find other Nigeran American therapist in their state. 

The directory is FREE for both clients and therapist. I hope that this resource helps you on your journey to healing and thriving.

  • What is the difference between therapy and therapeutic coaching?
    Therapy and therapeutic coaching share similarities, but they are not the same. Therapy is a clinical treatment that helps individuals resolve emotional, mental, and behavioral challenges that are impacting their overall functioning and well-being. A licensed therapist utilizes evidence-based techniques and interventions to assist clients in addressing and overcoming their difficulties. On the other hand, therapeutic coaching is focused on helping individuals achieve specific goals in their personal or professional lives. It is an action-oriented approach that emphasizes the present and future rather than the past. While both therapy and therapeutic coaching can help individuals improve their overall quality of life, they differ in their approaches and goals. Therapy is typically recommended for individuals with mental health conditions, while therapeutic coaching is more suitable for individuals seeking to make positive changes in their lives.
  • Do I have to be a resident of Texas in order to receive services?
    No, you do not have to be a resident of Texas to receive therapeutic coaching. However, you do need to be a resident of Texas in order to receive individual and/or couple's therapy. Please note that Damilola is licensed to practice in Texas only, so if you reside outside of Texas, the option available to you is only therapeutic coaching.
  • Do you offer in-person therapy sessions?
    All counseling sessions are conducted via a secure and easy-to-use telehealth platform. I do not offer in-person therapy.
  • What can I expect from tele-therapy?
    Sharing your deeper personal thoughts with a stranger is difficult, and doing it through a screen can be cumbersome, but it doesn’t have to be. Tele-therapy is not as scary as it seems. Many clients forget all about the screen within the first few minutes of their session. HIPPA compliant software is utilized for video sessions to ensure confidentiality of clients. Lets also not forget that tele-therapy ensures safety, saves times, accommodates physical limitations, and is simply easy to use. You are busy, but don’t let that stop you from getting the support and healing that you so desperately need.

    Under the Federal No Surprises Act (H.R. 133 – effective January 1, 2022), you have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services. You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees. Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
