Hello and congratulations on making the decision to take next steps! We all need help sometimes and it’s more than okay to ask for it. Life is really hard and you don’t need to make this journey alone. I am here to listen and walk with you as you go through the process of change. As we come across challenges in our lives, we often find ourselves getting caught up in repetitive loops due to past pains that constantly come back to haunt us. Our wounds can lead us to engage with ourselves and others in harmful ways, which have become a symptom of how we have learned to adapt and cope.

I work with clients to get in touch with their humanity and awaken to get to know who they truly are. I challenge the old sense of self to bridge to greater authenticity and personal empowerment. Therapeutic work is done through insight-oriented healing within a co-created space. My approach is empathic and compassionate, but assertive and realistic.

I have a culturally rich personal and professional background that has spanned across an array of people and life experiences. I advocate on behalf of diversity within the context of healthy and safe living, and self-love encompassing many walks of life. (Note: Weekend hours at Columbia office only).

Miya Williams's Groups

Women's Interpersonal process groups

This group is intended to provide support, insight, and feedback about any given problems. Over time, Individuals build relationships and practice new thoughts and behaviors that can be applied to life outside the session. This group would be helpful to receiving support around a variety of problems. Members are likely to get the most benefit from the group if they can commit to once a week meetings and are open to gradually sharing their experiences and here and now emotions. This group will be led by myself and a co-therapist. If interested please contact me.

More about this group

Children and Adolescent Interpersonal Groups

These groups provide social and emotional support to middle aged children (11+) and adolescents who struggle with issues such as social anxiety, loneliness, anxiety, depression and low self-esteem. Allowing kids and adolescents to be able to express themselves in a safe and open environment increases self-confidence, coping, and the ability to grow emotionally and personally. Focus is on bolstering strengths and areas of weakness with the help of the group within a relational context. The use of games, activities, skill building, healthy emotional and thoughtful expression, and other therapeutic techniques are used in a interpersonally guided process to facilitate change.
