Hello & Welcome! I am Stella Ukairo, Founder of Be Renewed Therapy & Wellness Center, mental health advocate, and a licensed psychotherapist. I obtained my Master’s in Clinical Social Work from Boston College and I have over 7 years of experience working with adolescents and adults in a variety of settings including outpatient care, community agencies, residential treatment and school based settings. I have worked with a wide range of people and cultures - those of faith and of no faith, those in crisis and those who are just struggling to cope with the many demands of life. I work with those from the dominant culture as well as ethnic minority/immigrant populations particularly the African Diaspora. Wherever you find yourself on the continuum, be assured that I will work collaboratively with you to ensure that the services I provide are customized to your needs, healing, and personal growth.
I treat a variety of psychological, emotional, and behavioral difficulties and I am passionate about helping people explore and make sense of their lives. I enjoy helping people find freedom from the cycle of anxiety, depression, pattern of poor choices, broken relationships, low self esteem and confidence and to live their best authentic life.
I help people explore and understand the impact of early childhood or traumatic experiences and how those experiences could be contributing to anxiety and depression as well as potentially hindering you from accomplishing your life goals and the purpose God has for your life.
I know from my own path to wellness, the importance of utilizing a holistic approach to heal the mind, body, and soul. In my journey, faith was and continues to be an integral path to wellness. And that is where you will find me at the intersection of faith and mental health. I believe that the two go hand-in-hand.
I work from the framework that Christ is the ultimate Healer and that He often uses His people - doctors, therapists, pastors, as instruments to bring about healing.
If you are looking for a partner to come alongside you on your journey of healing, self discovery and personal growth - a journey where you discover or rediscover all that God created you to be, I would be honored to be your partner. They say the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, so I would like to encourage you to take the first step and schedule a free 15 minute consultation to see if we would be a good fit. Seeking therapy is not a sign of weakness, but rather, a sign of strength.
