About Me

Hello, I'm Grace.

I am a bilingual Spanish speaking California licensed psychotherapist. I am a Certified Treatment Specialist for Diverse Populations (CTSDP) and practice in a culturally sensitive manner. I am an EMDR trained clinician with expertise in level 1, level 2, and the flash technique. I am a certified premarital counselor using the PREPARE/ENRICH program. I enjoy mentoring aspiring psychology students and future therapists.

I was born and raised in the east bay (Berkeley & Oakland), am from humble socioeconomic beginnings, and am proudly the first in my family to earn a higher education. I opened East Bay Area Therapy in 2016 after years of volunteering and working at non-profit health clinics, agencies, and with county services in San Francisco, east Oakland, Berkeley, and Contra Costa County.

EMDR Humanitarian Work

Serious psychological trauma results from the natural and man-made disasters, war, gun violence, and crime afflicting both survivors and the first responders who come to their aid. Grace Ohikere, M.A., MFT is a volunteer EMDR therapist with the Trauma Recovery/ Humanitarian Assistance Programs, a program that delivers mental health clinicians with evidence-based therapy to the scene of disasters, providing pro bono care to thousands in dire need. When disasters are very large or prolonged, Trauma Recovery/HAP helps local groups access trained clinicians in other localities, to contribute to pro bono services offered to survivors and first responders.
