Professional statement

Aisha's training, education, and professional experiences have prepared her to be an effective counselor. She relies on empathy, unconditional positive regard, and genuineness to create an atmosphere conducive to change.

She realizes that every individual is different and is adept at customizing her counseling approach to meet the unique needs of clients. Her counseling experience with adolescents and adults has enhanced her skills in working with clients from diverse socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds. She realizes that clients are the experts on their lives, and is open to receiving feedback from them to ensure therapeutic success.

Her most recent work in the field of substance abuse and addiction has further enhanced her ability to successfully work with clients who find the process of change especially challenging. She believes in collaboration and works together with her clients to start their healing journey.


Message to clients

I have been at the receiving end of therapy a few times, and I know it can be hard. It takes courage and dedication to acknowledge there is a problem that needs fixing. One of the most challenging things for both clients and therapists is when it seems like therapy isn't producing results. I firmly believe you are the expert on your life, and I value your insights. I aim to collaborate with you to ensure your satisfaction and equip you with the right tools to successfully navigate through future challenges.
