Alex Sasu, CT

Name: Alex Yeboah Sasu
Title: Counselor Trainee 
Credentials: M.A. Counseling student

Many clients are clueless about why they keep having relational problems and wonder if they can ever have a consistent, peaceful and joyful relationship with their loved ones. Using evidence-based theories and techniques, I help clients identify their unhealthy patterns of interaction, understand how that pattern evolved and develop a new, healthier pattern of interaction. As a result, clients are able to successfully sustain a healthy interactional pattern on their own without needing to rely on therapy.

Experience:
Alex is a student at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary (NOBTS) offering a Master of Arts in Counseling (Marriage and Family track). He just completed his practicum at Leege Magee Christian Counseling Centre in NOBTS, where he met with individuals, couples and families. He also worked with Teens Aloud Foundation for over a decade, where he helped mentor many young people in Africa and North America and helped counsel those with addictions. 

Client Focus: Couples, Families, individuals (starting at 15+)
Types of therapy: CBT, EFT, Gottman Method, EMDR, Premarital Counseling
