Dr. Akua K. Boateng is a sought after mental health and relationship expert with over 14 years experience in clinical practice and education. She specializes in an integrative approach to treating anxiety, trauma, relationship issues and other emotional concerns. She is the founder & CEO of Boateng Psychotherapy & Consultation, where she partners with organizations in the integration of emotionally aware practices and initiatives. We discuss Dr. Akua’s decision to become a therapist when she originally thought she’d go into medicine. We discuss trauma, what it is and actionable steps to start healing. We talk about how Dr. Akua self-cares, the importance of self-compassion, and her work with company culture and ethos.
“(Therapy is) A holding space for discovery of your own pain, your potential, your future, as well as this holding environment for there’s no expectation here except that you just show up.” – Dr. Akua Boateng
