Announcement icon Regular schedule is full, but I am offering time limited sessions via Zoom and/or phone during the period of quarantine & social distance.
LCSW with 20 years of professional experience. Having worked with a diverse client population, I am not only equipped to help clients move from a place of uncertainty to a place of greater clarity as well as satisfaction, but I am open to hearing from clients what they think will best help. My style is eclectic, drawing on a number of theories & ideas however, I regularly use a number of cognitive behavioral therapy techniques & exercises in sessions. I encourage my clients to look inward & to work introspectively to help to bring about healing as well as contentedness. Telehealth services only. Individual and group work.
I focus on the treatment of depression, anxiety, and relationship issues for women. I also specialize in work around the impact of infertility and pregnancy loss. I offer culturally sensitive treatment. Through my work, I hold space for those who are struggling.
If you are ready for a change in your life and you are interested in working with someone who will not only accept you for who you are, but who will simultaneously challenge you to grow into your highest self, please contact me today. I work from a place of empathy, will not judge or look down on you. I will only walk alongside you on your journey.

Ayana A Ali's Groups

Race-Related Trauma For Black Women

Are you hurt, afraid, devastated or all of the above by the racism that you have experienced in your life? Have the current events in this country and the numerous deaths of black people at the hands of the police become overwhelming to you? Is your experience as a black woman living in a racist society causing increased sadness and hopelessness? If so, this is a group designed specially for you. Join others who feel similarly to talk about your unique experiences as a black woman dealing with racial trauma. This is a safe space for you and about you.

More about this group

Women's Wisdom for Infertility and Pregnancy Loss

The inability to conceive or to carry a child to term is often a private pain that women carry alone or in isolation. Not everyone can relate and not everyone is comfortable discussing something that feels so personal. For many, the struggle to become a mother can be long, isolating, as well as fraught with sadness, bitter emotions and questions. But you are not alone. Join other women who, like you, and like I, are struggling or have struggled with fulfilling their dream of motherhood. Gain support and wisdom from those who truly understand what you’re feeling.
