I am passionate to extend my clinical focus to Black and Brown persons with hearing impairment to further increase accessibility of mental health services in underserved communities.
Hello! I am Ahxia (ah-jah), Therapist at Orchard Blue Counseling Services (OBS) and graduate at SUNY New Paltz with a Masters in Mental Health Counseling. At OBS, I provide holistic psychotherapy with a focus on BIPOC Millennials and Gen Z. My experience entails providing direct counseling to children, adolescents and young adults struggling with anxiety, depression and issues with self-image. As a woman of color, I understand firsthand how difficult it can be to find a provider that not only fits your needs but also looks like you. It has always been a goal of mine to fill this ever-present need in Mental Health care.

As we go through different stages of life; we might have difficulty dealing with certain life experiences like trauma, PTSD, domestic violence, struggling to understand our mental illness, and struggling to cope in a world that sees us as disabled. My counseling technique is the Person-Centered Approach where the client is directing their course of treatment. This allows the client to be the driver and not the therapist.

Life can throw many curve balls in a spur of a moment. However, you do not have to be alone in dealing with the psychological and emotional impact of these unpredictable and chaotic situations. Locating a therapist can be a fearful and daunting process, however, once found can be rewarding as you begin to express your deepest and most personal story. My goal is to help you be the best version of you!

I have experience working with clients who struggle with confidence, challenges understanding self worth, and who are experiencing life transitions. I also have a clientele whose goals are aimed at learning life skills, while learning ways to improve appearance and their overall sense of style. Many clients express interest in connecting their confidence with how they feel emotionally. Many clients believe that if they are able to understand how to cope with life stressors and triggers, they can improve confidence and understand their true self worth.

Do you feel like you can't turn your thoughts off? Find yourself staying up late each night exhausted, but can't find rest? Have a feeling of dread; you just can't shake? Or have you been more irritable lately, experiencing muscle tension, and are suddenly more forgetful? Are these feelings starting to interfere with your daily routines (consistently late for work or conflict in relationships)? If so, you may be experiencing anxiety. We all experience stress at times. Yet, it becomes problematic when it negatively impacts your quality of life.

It's not always easy knowing where to start, or where to go. Sometimes it's difficult to even find the words to express exactly how we're feeling, but we still feel it. Other times we may be unsure of how to cope with our feelings, or how to deal with the challenges we're facing. And that's okay, because we're human.

My ideal client is one who is self aware and ready to work on making positive changes. Their issues could range from events that happened during childhood to any current thoughts or behaviors that are not producing the desired outcomes. The ideal client will want someone who is there to listen without judgment, someone who will offer honest feedback and someone who will provide support and encouragement. I will work with that client to determine the problems, develop solutions and create goals for progress.
