Odile McKenzie, LCSW
Founder, Odile Psychotherapy Service
Odile is a cultural and trauma-responsive Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 10 years of experience. Born in St. Lucia, she immigrated to the US in her teens and identifies as Afro-Caribbean.
Odile practices through a lens of compassion, culture, and self-affirmation. She uses several modalities in her sessions: Attachment Therapy, Inter-generational Trauma, Polyvagal Therapy, Psycho-dynamic Therapy, Somatic Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
Odile specializes in helping people of color identify safety in their bodies and their relationships. Odile believes that we need other people to survive and that relationships are vital to our emotional and physical well-being. You get hurt in relationships and, therefore, you can heal in safe relationships. Therapy can be that safe relationship to help you heal your wounds.
Odile helps people identify the source of their maladaptive behaviors in relationships and guides them in healing. Her goal is to equip you with the tools to identify how your trauma manifests as anxiety, depression, avoidance, perfectionism, low-self esteem, people-pleasing, and fear.
From Odile’s sessions, you will learn how to improve your relationship with yourself, date better, cultivate more nurturing relationships, set boundaries, and manage challenging emotions.
