My name is Azmen. I am a licensed clinical social worker with over 7 years of experience in the field. I hold a certified advanced alcohol and drug counselor license as well as an acupuncture detoxification specialist certification. I received both my Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in social work from Western Michigan University. Concurrently I hold a minor in Addiction Studies.
As a therapist, my responsibility and pledge to those I serve is to holistically attend to each individual using a person-centered, motivational interviewing stance. Strengthening your inner healthy self-talk, affirming your values and beliefs, and walking alongside you helps further develop your "true" self, we can build a bond of trust and hope.
My therapy style is tailored to the specific needs of each individual, as we collaborate, to identify goals and solutions to many of life's problems. Perhaps you respond well to assignments and measurable tasks? I'll send them your way. Maybe you are interested in learning more about mindfulness-based strategies like meditation, journaling , or grounding? I draw on the unique individual strengths of each person while integrating traditional therapy with utilizing skills from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Acceptance Commitment Therapy, I work to empower patient's to make choices that align with their personal goals and values.
I bond with patients over mutually agreed upon therapeutic goals within a caring, non-judgmental and comfortable space where you can explore, discuss and be heard. Use of empathy, transparency, humor, and respect helps put people at ease; helping support you on your path towards healing, recovery and growth.

I can't THANK Azmen enough for her counselling. It has changed my life and my perception of things. Anyone would be lucky to have her as their counsellor.
She is awesome. I have seasonal depression and she really helped me dig out of the hole last winter...I am back again this winter and she greeted me with a warm welcome!
Azmen is always fantastic, friendly, funny and usually exactly what I need at the time. She is quick to set me at ease and always has wise words!
Azmen is an insightful and empathic person that has been a great help to me. She is great at listening and offering practical feedback to help address issues. Anyone looking for some help to work through issues would benefit greatly from Azmen’s approach.
Very attentive and experienced therapist. It's been only one week but I can already see improvement in my self esteem and relationships. I would definitely recommend her to others.
Kind, supportive, encouraging, and personable.
I've only been working with her for a short time, but she has made a dramatic difference in my life!
I'm so glad I found Azmen through BetterHelp. I found our first few session so valuable in helping me understand the past 3 decades of my life in a way I never would have before, so I can break bad patterns and behaviours that are causing me stress and challenges in so many areas of my life now. She gives practical advice, but she's patient and understanding if Im unable to do it all, which keeps me encouraged to keep making small positive steps, her support means the world to me right now, thank you so much Azmen
Azmen was very kind and knowledgeable in helping me cope with some decisions around therapy vs medication. A kind person who listens and you can truly feel wants to help you get better.
I really enjoy talking to Azmen. She is very understanding and helpful. I'd recommend her to anyone seeking some guidance free from judgment.
What a ray of sunshine!
Azmen Williams is an incredible counselor, she is warm friendly and professional, she is very flexible so I really feel that I am getting counseling that suits my needs. I feel very listened too and understood and she gives incredible insightful advice that is actually practical. She is also wonderful at allowing me to check in with her between sessions so I feel supported all throughout the week
