Announcement icon During this time of crisis, I am conducting sessions remotely. Please reach out if you are in need of support.
Akilah Sigler is not currently accepting new clients.
I provide individual therapy that is warm, collaborative, and tailored to meet the unique needs of each person I see. I strongly value inclusivity and respect--values I incorporate into my work with an empowering and anti-oppressive practice. My clients arrive in therapy coping with trauma, depression, anxiety, and grief. Together, we work not only toward developing healthy coping skills, but toward healing for a sense of purpose, contentment, and peace. Therapy is an excellent place to affirm and internalize a greater sense of self worth and to practice a compassionate attitude toward yourself.
I am particularly skilled at working with individuals who have experienced trauma. While I am experienced working with people of many different backgrounds and identities, I am especially well versed in working with people of color & LGBTQIAA+ individuals who contend with microaggressions and systems that diminish wellness.
Choosing to come to therapy is an incredible opportunity for learning, growth, and creating a life of meaning and fulfillment. I offer individual therapy for adults and elders by phone or video conference only. **Please note, I accept only out of network benefits and am not in network with any insurance panels.** www.akilahsigler.com
