(LPC, CSAC, EMDR)

About Me

Ever since I was 12 years old I knew that I had a passion for helping people. I started working in a daycare, moved to school settings, and continued moving up from there. I have over 17 years of experience in the mental health and addictions field. I have been fully licensed for 3 years. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree and a double major in Psychology and Addiction Studies from Alverno College in 2007. In 2010, I received my Master of Science degree in Mental Health Counseling with a minor in Addiction Studies. I'm originally from Wisconsin but I've been in Tucson for over 2 years. I have my LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor) in Wisconsin and Arizona. I also have my CSAC (Clinical Substance Abuse Counselor) in Wisconsin as well.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I've worked in a lot of settings including; online, inpatient, outpatient, residential, in-home, in the community, comprehensive treatment centers, corrections, and schools providing mental health therapy, addiction counseling, parenting skills, daily living skills, and anger management. I've facilitated groups, worked with couples, families, and 1 on 1 therapy. I incorporate several methods including; EMDR, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution Focused Therapy, and Person-Centered Therapy.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. You've taken that courageous first step, you're here. When you are ready to take the next step, click the "Work with me" link.

I look forward to supporting and empowering you!

Written by A.M. on Oct 31, 2018 after counseling with Aisha for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, anger management, and career difficulties

Aisha is amazing. This is my first experience with counseling of any kind has been EXACTLY what I hoped for. Aisha is genuine and engaged while offering guidance where needed and NOT just telling you what you want to hear. I'm so glad she was assigned to me, I like her as a human being and as a therapist, I think she really cares about helping me on my journey to my best self and that feels really good.

I really appreciate all the questions Aisha has for me that help me search my feelings and help me to plan my next steps.

I love how quick Aisha is to respond, and if I don’t message for a couple of days she’ll check up on me.

Aisha is wonderful. I’m incredibly picky when it comes to finding a therapist to work with. Aisha is someone who is easy to talk to, holds me accountable for my actions, makes me think and challenges me. I will continue to use her for therapy and would strongly recommend her to anyone who appreciates a good listener and may have had trouble finding a good fit with other therapists.

Ms. Aisha is helpful, honest and upfront with me. I love my counselor, she is taking baby steps with me, and I greatly appreciate her.

Aisha has been great in offering insights and tools to help me understand and overcome the issues in my life. Knowing that I can rationalize my emotions and thoughts gave me hope that I am able to resolve these negative states. I highly recommend Aisha!

I feel comfortable speaking to Aisha. To me that's the most important thing they can do is make you comfortable.

Written by K.A. on Apr 14, 2018 after counseling with Aisha for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, and self esteem

Aisha had instilled a lot of confidence in me. She always reminds me that I am strong, and smart, and she tells me she is proud of me. That is so important. She really listens and responds. She's not the "fixer" type, which is amazing. Anyone with anxiety and depression never wants to be looked at as "broken" and since talking with Aisha, I know she doesn't think of me as broken. It's great to have someone to talk to, but it's even better when they aren't trying to fix you.

Aisha is very easy to talk to, knowledgeable, and an excellent listener. I was nervous about using the service but my time with Aisha had put my mind at ease.
