About me

Hello, my name is Ayana and I am a licensed clinical social worker. I have been practicing for over 5 years and have counseled individuals (children and adults) and families from all walks of life. I have experience with mental health, behavioral health and active crisis situations. My main approaches are both client and solution focused! I enjoy building rapport with each of my clients and finding out together what goals they can reach. My mission is not only to help my clients set goals but to also accomplish them! I approach from a non-judgmental stance and allow my clients the autonomy to make their own decisions while also guiding them to success. I look forward to talking with you!
