Ajila Harris

(LCSW)

About Me

Hello, I am Ajila pronounced (Ah-Ji-Lay) I have a Master's degree in Social Work and have attained my Licence in Clinical Social Work (LCSW) have been doing therapy for 16 years. I focus on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), I have found that this form of therapy is very helpful. With CBT I tend to provide homework because, therapy isn't for the therapist to fix things, therapy is for me to provide you with the tools that can you get to the place you want to be. Homework helps you between sessions to work on things we discussed during our sessions. I approach each individual with respect and openness to listening to their story and use a strengths based approach to identify goals and strategies to address concerns. My scope of practice is working with adults, homeless, veterans and geriatric individuals. I am looking forward to working with you.

I am specifically fond of how Ajila provides me with a variety of perspectives to my situations. I’m working through a lot of tough things and I am truly grateful to get to talk them through with Ajila!

I have been with Ajila for two weeks now. She makes me feel heard and gives me different ways to work through my struggles. She helps me see all sides and tries to help me see what truly bothers me and how to work through it.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with Ajila. She is a great listener and I feel like she puts a lot of thought into our conversations. I love that she mixes her advice with humor and I always feel better after our sessions. The homework she assigns is always helpful and I will continue to practice it on a regular basis. Ajila helped me with my anxiety, self awareness, and irritability to name a few. She is a great counselor and I am so happy I had the opportunity to work with her to improve myself.

Written by R.U. on Jan 22, 2021 after counseling with Ajila for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, and coaching

This is the first time that I've ever sought out therapy and it was certainly one of the best decisions I've ever made in my life. Ajila has been a godsend and incredible help in my overcoming depression/overwhelm. In just one month, the tools that she has provided me has helped me with mental clarity, focus, and ability to take on more in my life. I was able to restart rigorous interview processes that I was far too burned out to tackle. The homework / exercises that she recommends are incredible in achieving clarity on goals that I would like to achieve in the future, and to teach me how to manage stress.

Now that I'm able to take on more, Ajila is helping me with personal relationships and developing communication skills. She's helped me be at peace with a lot of the negative things (these are just challenges that occur throughout life), and to restore my optimistic personality. A lot of the tools that she's recommended and provided are invaluable and will be in my toolkit for the rest of my life. I highly recommend Ajila Harris as a therapist, as she has helped me immensely with my mental health.

Ajila has helped me understand myself more than I ever have in my life. She has made me feel comfortable revealing my truths and being honest with myself. I cannot begin to express the gratitude of how just two sessions with her has changed me for the better. Looking forward to continuing my journey with her!

I think like anyone, I was a bit nervous to start therapy. Ajila makes me feel very comfortable, safe, and listened to. Her sense of humor has also been a great tool in calming my nerves and making me feel more settled. She listens to my concerns and makes sure I have the tools I need to continue moving forward .
