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 (Lola) is a first generation Nigerian-American passionate about diversifying the mental health field.

Born and raised in Massachusetts by parents from Nigeria, Lola experienced a bicultural upbringing.  She navigated two worlds with different beliefs, values and ideologies, providing opportunity to experience multiple perspectives.  She navigated challenges inside and outside the home.  Through these challenges, she developed a passion for helping others and recognized an immense need for culturally aware, client-centered psychological care.  Thus, Lola found her home in the field of social work.

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.  She’s since found that her clinical skills and personal strengths lend well to supporting tweens, teens and young adults through transitions and around the areas of body image, self-esteem and eating issues.  In addition to her exceptional clinical skill, Lola brings her vibrant personality, humility, humor, honesty and compassion to her work.

Lola strives to create a therapeutic environment where each individual feels seen and heard and comfortable bringing their whole self to session.  Lola understands that there are many factors that contribute to thought process, actions, perception, and internalizes sense of self and the world one lives in. 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 in a generalized adult outpatient mental health program. These experiences inspired her to create a personalized approach to care based on respect and genuine compassion for the diverse ways humans exist in the world.  in her work for each of her clients, an experience that is based on respect and genuine compassion for the diverse ways humans exist in the world.  Lola’s passion for diversity and individualization extends to alignment with the Health at Every Size (HAES)® approach to health.  She is honored to join her clients wherever they are on their path to body liberation or acceptance.  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 from life suffering and relishes the opportunity to be part of that relief.

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