Professional statement

Maysa is a licensed social worker (LMSW) in both Connecticut and Alabama. She has extensive training and experience working with individuals who experience substance use disorders, eating disorders, depression, anxiety, as well as other crises they may experience. She believes in a holistic approach in addressing lifestyle changes, tackling dysfunctional thinking, exploring healthier coping skills, and addressing sources of distress by drawing from social justice values, understanding each person's unique situation and identifying possible solutions. Maysa is also willing to "just listen" if that is what you need the most! She believes that who we are and how we are perceived by society can greatly impact our lives. Her passions lie in providing equitable and comprehensive therapeutic services to individuals who have been marginalized by society. Therapy should be a safe space to explore who you are and thrive, and she aims to create a safe space for this.

Maysa works best with adults, although she is open to working with teenagers ages 14 and up. Her ideal client is someone who is open to learning more about themselves and how their environment impacts them. She has extensive background in working with individuals experiencing depression, anxiety, substance use disorder, and eating disorders. You are the expert in your life, she is here to empower and assist you in the process of thriving into your best self.


Message to clients

I believe that every one of us has the capacity to heal and grow, provided the right support and environment. The realm of therapy has not always been inclusive, especially to those who have been marginalized by society. As a therapist, I aim to offer a warm, non-judgmental safe space for us to work together and explore how you can reach your full potential. I am here to walk alongside you on this journey and to empower you to thrive. My goal is to tackle the disparities in mental health care access to individuals who have been marginalized and empower them to reach their full potential.

In a country that has been built on institutions of white supremacy, it is important to recognize how it has marginalized individuals from seeking therapy. I strive to create a therapeutic relationship that recognizes and celebrates various identities. I believe that we are constantly learning about people and the world around us and I aim to provide culturally competent care to all my clients, and to create a safe and empowering space for clients to thrive.
