My name is Ayana Ali and I am an LCSW 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 uncertainty to a place of greater clarity and well satisfaction, but I am open to hearing from clients what they think will best help. I combine my experience with your wisdom and we work together collaboratively towards your wellness.
My Style & Expertise
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 as well as contentedness.
I believe in increasing access for all so I exclusively provide Telehealth services. We can meet from wherever you are, on your lunch break, your car, or the comfort of your home. You choose the location that works best for you.
I have a few focus areas that I concentrate my work around- the treatment of depression, anxiety, and relationship issues for women. I also specialize in work around the impact of infertility and pregnancy loss.
Lastly, I work with people who have experienced race-related trauma and racism in the workplace. 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, 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.
