Gbemi Adekoya (Coach G)
My name is Gbemi and I enjoy helping people who are determined to get unstuck from old patterns, by collaborating with you to untangle life's complications, so you can be the improved version of yourself you so strongly want, and deserve, to be.
I’m a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC), Licensed Marriage and Family Therapy Associate (LMFT-Associate), and Board Certified assistant Behavior Analyst (BCaBA). I provide clinical therapy to clients resident in Texas, and because I am convinced that everyone deserves help and support no matter where they are located, I also provides coaching, which excludes the clinical diagnosis and treatment of disorders, to meet the needs of clients outside Texas.
I have a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from UHV, as well as a Bachelor’s in Behavioral Science from UHCL. I am Board Certified in Applied Behavior Analysis and have completed the first level of Gottman Couples Therapy Method. I have extensive experience in the Human Services field, having worked as a Crisis Counselor on the National Suicide Prevention Helpline, Case Manager and Disability Integration Advisor for FEMA, and Behavior Therapist specializing in Autism and neurodivergence, providing parent training and behavior modification interventions to families needing support.
My therapeutic approach is client-led, personalized to each individual and trauma informed, acknowledging the impact of life experiences and culture on each individual’s current circumstances, recognizing that some symptoms may represent efforts at coping, leading to asking “what happened to you” rather than the implied judgment of “what’s wrong with you?”. I combine evidence-based treatment methods including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Applied Behavior Analysis, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, as well as current Neuroscience research to provide support and practical tools to help you improve your outcomes.
As an LMFT-Associate and LPC-Associate with License Numbers 204177 and 86309, I am being supervised clinically by Diane Vines, LMFT-S and LPC-S with License Numbers 5055 and 16863.
I am confident that together, we can untangle the knots that life’s complications create.
