We had the good fortune of connecting with Gbubemi Uwaifo and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Gbubemi, is there something you can share with us that those outside of the industry might not be aware of?
When starting our business Affirm Wellness, we had a vision of educating the community about overall wellness using the 8 dimensions of wellness as a model. As therapists, we understand the importance of sharing information related to mental health. We strive to destigmatize views related to mental health, so that individuals can gain awareness that we all are impacted by mental health.

What should our readers know about your business?
Affirm Wellness is a full service counseling practice with therapists that have over 15 years of experience. We help support the clients we serve in working toward living life as the healthiest version of themselves. We are most proud of being two dynamic women in our own right working together to bring our vision to life. We are business owners who are open to learning, open to change, networking with others, and utilizing resources in the community in order to uphold the mission of our business Affirm Wellness. Working well together as business partners has made the journey easier. Like all businesses, we have had challenges, but we choose to focus more on gratitude. We are passionate about the services we provide. We deliver individual therapy, couples therapy, family therapy, as well as facilitate workshops, support groups, and community events that help educate and support individuals related to overall wellness. We also pride ourselves in giving back through community service and donations.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Some of the places we would take a friend to would include…The Beltline, Atlanta Botanical Gardens, Georgia Aquarium, Atlantic Station, Mall of Georgia, Kennesaw Mountain for a nice hike/walk, Fogo de Chao, Juicy Crab, Cheesecake Factory, Spice House, Waffle House, Steak Market, Top golf, and iFly indoor skydiving.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My amazing business partner DeShona Charles shares the Affirm Wellness vision with me and is passionate about the work that we do as business owners and service providers.
