Azalia Pettway


About Me

I am a mental health therapist licensed in Maryland and North Carolina with over 7 years of experience working as a mental health counselor and life coach. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, substance abuse, renal failure, homelessness and grief and loss. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse and low self-esteem.

My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, self-love, motivational interviewing, and a client’s faith. I believe in starting at the root to help connect with the current issues and challenges which can lead to a stable resolution. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change to get to that inner peace within. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

I really enjoy her and her advice I was excited for my session today but weather is making me miss it I love her advice and homework

She was a great listener, she allowed me to talk out my emotions before offering steps to cope with my stress. And then tools provided were practical and realistic.

Work with me!
