WHO I AM

Hi!  I am Ayana, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), coach, wife, mom, and dog mother.  I have lived through infertility and repeated pregnancy loss.  I am an anxiety warrior, working every day to live freely and without worry.  I also overcame a pregnancy related medical malpractice that almost killed me. I am a healer and a survivor and an expert at teaching others to not only heal as well as to survive, but to also thrive.
 
Usually, you can find me hanging out with my dog, Dixie, my business partner, and best friend.  You may also find me playing with my 5-year-old, joking with my husband, or talking to my sister and parents.  I am from Brooklyn and love this place more than any place else that I have been in the world, and I have been all over.  I am always singing, always quoting song lyrics, and always laughing.  Join me!

 


MY PHILOSOPHY AND STYLE
 
My style is eclectic, drawing on several theories & ideas to utilize in sessions.  However, the most significant tenet that I rely on in my work with clients is that you have wisdom within you that you can draw upon to help to change your life.  My job is to help you to find that wisdom.  I will not heal you, but I can help you to heal.  I can’t cause you to survive, but I can help you to thrive.  How?  By walking with you as you look inwardly and work introspectively to help to bring about a shift in your world.
 
I offer telehealth services. I provide individual, group, and infertility related  couples work. I also provide clinical supervision and consultation to developing clinicians. By and large, the population that I serve is women, paying special attention to black and brown women and their communities, but my services are for everyone. I have two niche populations: women working through severe anxiety as well as those dealing with the impact of infertility and pregnancy loss. I offer culturally sensitive treatment and oversight. 

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