Omolola Ogunjobi, MSW, LCSW

Social Worker

“I believe that each individual is a once-in-a-lifetime event and that event is worthy, unique, and deserving of individualized peace.”

Omolola is a first generation Nigerian-American who is passionate about diversifying the mental health field.  She strongly believes representation of different ethnicities, cultures and identities in the field is needed to foster a sense of safety and encourage individuals of all backgrounds to seek help when needed. Through life experiences and recognizing an immense need for more individualized care of humans, Lola found her passion in the field of social work.  Following this passion, she completed her masters degree in social work at Simmons University.  During her training, she developed a particular interest in working with individuals with eating disorders.

Born and raised in Massachusetts by parents from Nigeria, Lola experienced a bicultural upbringing.  She navigated two worlds with different beliefs, values and ideologies, allowing her to see multiple perspectives.  She navigated these challenges inside and outside the home with the additional challenge of being a black woman growing up in American society.

Lola strives to create a therapeutic environment where ALL individuals have the chance to feel seen, heard, and comfortable bringing their multidimensional selves and stories to session.  Lola intimately understands that there are many aspects of an individual that contribute to their thought process, actions, perception, and internalized sense of self and the world around them. She believes that there is no “one size fits all” when it comes to working through and treating the once in a lifetime event that is each individual.

Lola has worked at residential and partial behavioral health programs for adolescents and completed an internship for generalized adult outpatient mental health services. These experiences were even more eye opening in observing systems, conveyer belt treatment, and lack of respect for individuals and their bodies. There was also a noticeable lack of diversity in ethnic and social backgrounds of providers. This is why Lola is passionate about diversity and individualization extending into adopting the core principles of Health at Every Size (HAES), body acceptance AND/OR neutrality; each lens holds a space for those at odds with themselves and wanting to ease suffering and pain. The ultimate goal is progress, understanding, and acknowledging that the healing journey is a unique recipe for each person. Lola holds the hope that everyone can achieve some sense of relief that works for them.

Outside of being a therapist, Lola enjoys her alone time, brunch dates with friends, and can mainly be found immersing herself in music.
