About me

Hello, I am Ajila pronounced (Ah-Ji-Lay) I have a Master's degree in Social Work and have attained my License in Clinical Social Work (LCSW) . I have been doing therapy for 18 years. My primary focus is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). With CBT I tend to provide homework because, therapy isn't for the me to fix things, but for me to provide you with the tools that can be applied for you to succeed. Homework also helps between sessions by practicing the tool on issues we discussed during the session. I approach each individual with respect and openness to listening to their story in order to identify goals and strategies that will address concerns. My experience has been working with adults, homeless, veterans and geriatric individuals. I am looking forward to working with you.

Ajila has helped me immensely. She kept working with me to find the tools that I needed to be able to manage problems that I have been struggling to deal with for years now and I have not felt this good in a LONG time. Ajila is also just fun to talk to and I always finished sessions with a smile on my face even when it was a rough start. I cannot recommend her enough, thank you Ajila!!!
