Ayo Amadu, AMFT


Ayo has been with Acadia Healthcare since 2021. Ayo is a Associate Family and Marriage Therapist who found his niche in Trauma-Based intervention for addiction. In his therapeutic style, he bridges a client-centered approach with psychodynamic psychotherapy. This style helps his clients find contentment in the present while also resolving the pain from their past that underlies their substance use. He has firsthand experience on how substance use has devastating effects on families and impedes great potential from blossoming. Ayo also has many years of experience working with incarcerated youth who have trauma and struggles with addiction. Ultimately, Ayo hopes to be a shining light in the field of addiction.
