Headway

Ayana

I am a licensed clinical social worker with 20 years of professional experience. Having worked with a diverse client population, I am not only equipped to help clients move from a place of less certainty to a place of greater clarity as well as satisfaction, but I am open to hearing from clients what they think will best help. My style is eclectic, drawing on a number of theories and ideas however, I regularly use a number of cognitive behavioral therapy techniques and exercises in sessions. I encourage my clients to look inward and to work introspectively to help to bring about healing and contentedness. My work is done online.


I focus on the treatment of depression, anxiety, and relationship issues for women. I also specialize in work around the impact of infertility and pregnancy loss. I offer culturally sensitive treatment. Through my work, I hold space for those who are struggling.


If you are ready for a change in your life and you are interested in working with someone who will not only accept you for who you are, but who will simultaneously challenge you to grow into your highest self, please contact me today. I work from a place of empathy, will not judge or look down on you, I will only walk alongside you on your journey.
