Lydia grew up in Nigeria, West Africa and moved to the US in 2003 to attend college. She graduated from Calvin College (Grand Rapids, MI) in 2007 with her BA in Psychology, and from Eastern University (St. David’s, PA) in 2012 with her MA in Clinical & Community Counseling. She has practiced in community outpatient clinics in Philadelphia, Mt.

Outside of therapy, Lydia enjoys running, practicing yoga, learning how to garden, reading a good book, listening to podcasts, traveling (even being in airports which feel like home!) and indulging in Netflix, dark chocolate, and red wine with her husband.
