Oyediya joined Lucy Daniels Center as a SecurePath Clinician in 2021. Oyediya has combined experience working with vulnerable populations such as low income families, children, refugees, and immigrants. Oyediya is passionate about helping children and families recognize their strengths and take better care of their mental health.

Prior to joining the SecurePath team, Oyediya was an Intensive In-Home Therapist working with adolescents and their caregivers to help stabilize and decrease the youth’s disruptive behaviors. Oyediya also has experience as an Early Head Start Educator for children ages 0-3 which sparked her interest in becoming a clinician to address the emotional disturbances present in the classroom, home, and the community.

Oyediya is looking forward to expanding on her clinical skills at Lucy Daniels Center through psychotherapy interventions such as Play Therapy and strengthening Child-Parent relationships.
