I am Risper Ngumba, Licensed Professional Counselor. I hold a Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy, have advanced training in Emotionally Focused Therapy, and am Gottman Level II Certified. I work with adolescents, young adults, and adults, couples, families, individuals, and executives (my background being corporate management consulting). I love raising awareness regarding mental health among Black, Latinx, and minority people groups.

I get you. You are struggling with conflict, distress, and poor communication. Your relationship with your partner or your family is suffering and you don’t know how to improve it. You’re struggling to overcome difficulties of your past, gain a sense of self-worth, develop new relationship patterns, and become your best self. You are overwhelmed with complex trauma or co-dependency or depression or anxiety. If you are an executive, you have some very specific challenges and could use some empathy and emotional support as well as help clarifying goals, setting objectives, and gaining self-awareness. If you are Black, Latinx, or other minority people group, you are looking for a counselor who can relate and empathize with your unique challenges. If you are an adolescent (or have an adolescent), or a young adult, you wonder if there is a counselor who understands what you’re going through and won’t talk down to you.

I have found that every one of these problems can be effectively addressed with Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). EFT is based on the science of attachment and is unsurpassed in helping you learn what is driving your negative patterns that are undermining your relationships and sabotaging your mental health. EFT focuses on repairing, rebuilding, and reinforcing your connection to others so that you can feel safe and secure with the result that you become more resilient and able to handle the challenges of life. Research shows that 70-75% of couples move from distress to recovery in 10-12 sessions and 90% show significant improvement. I see individuals, couples, and families in weekly sessions as well as 2-3 day couples intensive counseling. For executives and professionals, my background in management consulting gives me a keen understanding of the demands you’re struggling with. I am available for teletherapy.
