About me

I am a Licensed Master Social Worker with twenty-five years of experience in the Social Work field. I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology, a Master of Social Work and am qualified as a School Social Worker. I began my career in the areas of child and family services, foster care, adoption, intensive family services, vocation, juvenile justice, schools, elder care, and individual, group, and family therapy.

In addition to being a licensed Clinical and Macro Therapist, I am also a Certified Life Coach specializing in relationships. I have professional experience in the areas of family, dating, friendship, marriage, divorce and co-parenting. I am passionate about helping to improve interpersonal interactions. I believe that everyone is capable of change and self-improvement. Fear is often the deterrent that holds us back from becoming the best versions of ourselves.

I also believe that faith and establishing a spiritual practice plays a major role in accomplishing lasting results. I offer unbiased person-centered, solution-focused and strengths-based support, and my approach is open-minded, non-judgmental, and empathetic. Allow me to assist you in establishing goals that meet your unique needs. I look forward to the opportunity to serve you.

Weyni has been a great therapist for me! She’s great at digging deep to uncover items I may not even realized I needed to process. My favorite is the worksheets and homework she sends me home with, these are extremely helpful.

My experience with Weyni has been amazing! This is my first time ever being in therapy. I was nervous, but the minute she started talking I instantly calm down. I definitely look forward too our weekly therapy sessions. I love a challenge along with accountability. Her feedback suggestions, and a little homework are always on point. I would highly (Oh and I have) recommend her.

Weyni offered grief worksheets that I wanted before I even requested them. She is really helping me be proactive about the personal work that I need to do.

I really appreciate Ms. Williams she really has gotten me to really open up and not feel ashamed at doing so. She is helping me get and feel more empowered with every visit. I have no doubt we will achieve my goal in time.

i absolutely love weyni! i was someone who was extremely hesitant to sign up for therapy and even more nervous that betterhelp would find a match for me right off the bat. i thought for sure i would end up trying a few therapists before i found one i was comfortable with and who i felt like they actually listened and vibed with. from our very first session, everything has been wonderful. i always feel like weyni listens to me and really can see where i'm coming from and why i feel the way that i do. she assures me that it is okay to feel the emotions that i do and gives me advice and different resources in order to help process all of them. i truly look forward to our weekly sessions.

Weyni is the very first therapist I’ve worked with, and she has been very welcoming and supportive. She checks in weekly and is very knowledgeable. She has given me a great therapy experience thus far.
