Tosin Akintan, LPC --- Supervised by Nicole Holmes, PhD

My name is Tosin (she/her) and I hold a Master of Education in Counseling from the University of Houston and currently pursuing a PhD in Counseling Psychology from Texas Woman’s University. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Texas.

I am passionate about providing culturally affirming care, and helping others as they cope with life difficulties. I apply a person centered framework in work with clients. I often utilize a trauma focused lens that address the symptoms clients face, the contexts or systems in which clients function in and how these systems influence their lived experiences.
I aim to help you reach your potential and resolve things holding you back from living authentically. I believe that everyone has the power to create the life they want and I am dedicated to walking with you on your journey to do so. I am eager to partner in your healing, and growth with clarity, compassion and authenticity. It is my hope to help clients find new definitions in ways that will strengthen families, relationships, and individuals.
As an immigrant, I understand the barriers that block access for marginalized populations to therapy and a goal of mine is to provide validating therapeutic services while bringing my authentic self to every session. Resistance and authenticity are part of my growth and consciousness, and I am passionate about working with Black and immigrant women, students, clients navigating life transitions, trauma, anxiety/depression, grief and relational concerns.

Outside of my clinical work you can find me repotting a new plant, spending time with my friends and family, dancing at a moments notice and traveling to a new place.
