Foremost, she aims to debunk the false belief, specifically within Black culture, that therapy is non-essential to healing racial, generational and family traumas; reshaping that narrative one therapy session at a time.

She's worked with varied and some of the most vulnerable populations including individuals experiencing homelessness, intimate partner violence, substance abuse/ misuse, crisis intervention, the formerly incarcerated and communities who have experienced gun violence. This real-world application has only increased Dashiya's level of empathy and dedication to the field and individual clients. Her approach to therapy is client-centered, strengths-based and trauma-informed. Dashiya's sole mission is to prioritize people over diagnosis.

My post graduate studies focused on how African American women navigate the challenges of romantic relationships while dealing with the transition into motherhood.
I empower women and individuals to navigate through the crossroads and transitions in life in order to help them live their best lives. Because research has shown that transitions in life trigger physical and emotional stress responses in the body, and having coping skills to effectively manage the stress of life's crossroads can provide the emotional stamina needed to thrive, I offer relationship counseling, individual counseling for anxiety, depression, grief and loss associated with life transitions, and relationship issues.

As a black female therapist I work with young adult black women and young adult women of color experiencing anxiety related to struggles with racial trauma, adjustment from youth to adulthood and other difficult life transitions.
Seeking therapy is an strength that many overlook. Being in a place in which you want support to see changes in how you cope and adjust to struggles in life, shows strength. As you work to navigate life, to find out who you want to be in this world, or what is in the way of discovering your purpose, it can be exhausting. I work in therapy to support individuals with better managing anxiety, low self esteem, and life transitions. I provide a space for you to have a voice and to develop greater confidence in yourself. I use strength building techniques, and a systemic viewpoint to support you with a greater understanding of yourself.

You are pregnant again, but the excitement isn’t there. You feel anxiety before your OB appointments and try to make sure you are prepped enough to ask all the questions you need to. More stress keeps coming up. The thought of announcing your pregnancy and each new pregnancy symptom brings anxiety. You can’t help but wonder what will happen if you lose this baby too. No one seems to understand. It hurts to hear your family and friends encouraging you to forget about your loss and move on. You are wondering if you will ever get to experience the joy of pregnancy and bringing home your baby.
