Hey there! My name is Ibinye Osibodu-Onyali, but you can call me Ibi (like Ivy). I am a licensed marriage and family therapist in Murrieta, CA. If you're reading this then I'm guessing there's an area of your life that is out of balance or anxiety has a grip on you.
You have no idea how things got this bad. You look at yourself in the mirror and you don’t recognize the woman staring back at you. You’re putting on a show for everyone, but deep inside you’re lost. You’ve had many hurts in past relationships and you’re finding it hard to trust again. You would love to find your voice, but you think to yourself “If I speak up, no one will hear me.” How do you find your way back to the real you? You spend so much time giving to everyone, pleasing everyone, but no one really sees you. If things continue this way, you’re afraid that the anxiety will consume you and maybe even your marriage too. You’re tired of exploding on your loved ones and crying quietly when you’re alone. You’re tired of the facade.
I help professional women who experience anxiety find their voice, gain confidence and believe in themselves again. I'll help you find your calm. I provide both in person counseling in Murrieta, as well as online counseling for people who live in California so you can learn how to communicate assertively. When you’re on my therapy couch, you can be yourself-laugh, cry and let your guard down. We’ll work together to find the strengths you never knew you had and use these strengths to shape the way you communicate with the people you love the most. I only take a small handful of clients, which means I will be very dedicated to you. You are more than just a number. My goal is to get you to your goal as quickly as possible.
The therapy or counseling couch is a great place to discover parts of yourself that you've pushed down for years. Imagine being able to express your opinions without doubting yourself. Imagine feeling secure in your own body and being able to be vulnerable with the ones you love. No more acting, no more persona, no more people pleasing.
And for women with insomnia, I use CBT for Insomnia (CBTI) to help you go from tossing and turning at night, to getting the rest you’ve always dreamed of in less than 8 weeks. It’s time for you to finally become a normal sleeper and kick those sleep medications that you hate so much.
For the woman of faith, I provide Christian counseling or Christian therapy in Murrieta and online. We will integrate scripture and prayer into our counseling sessions.
