“Healing may not be so much about getting better, as about letting go of everything that isn’t you- all of the expectations, all of the beliefs- and becoming who you are.” -Rachel Naomi Remen. While life is often full of beauty, it also comes with uncertainties, challenges and at times, suffering. Aisha believes therapy is an empowering tool for anyone who may be struggling to navigate through life’s challenges, adjusting to present adversity or processing unhealed trauma. Regardless of the struggle you may be facing, Aisha seeks to promote a non-judgemental and relatable approach to assisting others in establishing autonomy.

I work with clients who have issues of grief, depression, various kinds of trauma, including trauma which may be from past lives, sexual abuse trauma, life transitions, aging, near-death experiences, spirituality, spiritual wounding, and spiritual emergency. Although I can help the individual heal and/or cope better with the symptoms or issues they might be experiencing, if the individual is willing to do the deeper soul work, I also want to help that person find the meaning of those symptoms and issues, and in finding that meaning, begin to experience spiritual transformation and growth - new life.

Accepting New Clients! You want your life to be different, make big changes, take risks, but there’s something that’s holding you back. You’ve tried everything, and maybe it provides short-term relief, but here’s the problem: it’s still there. You can see that life and those around you continue to move forward. All the while you feel stuck and bracing for what is around the corner. But what if it was possible to live without fear of the future or the weight of the past? To live life embracing the full extent of human emotion—grief, pain, fear—but also joy, hope, and love. To become the hero of your own story.

I believe that we all need someone to listen....really listen and that I believe is the power of the relationship between client and therapist. We all need someone to guide us, walk with us and help us through difficult times that are either happening now or have happened in our past. I strive to be that for my clients. I believe that helping a client understand themselves better and understand how their mental health is impacting their relationships and their own level of functioning is the path to healing and recovery.

Our lives can get extraordinarily challenging and burdensome at times, and we may struggle to cope with the things that are being thrown our way. That can lead to various difficulties and affect our ability to enjoy our lives. As a counselor, I try to demystify the counseling process; in that counseling is a process of self-exploration and at times that can be extremely hard as we discuss issues or concerns you find difficulty talking about. But, with time as we work together, my goal is to support you in your process toward healing and growth.

Sexual Abuse Therapists

How do therapists treat sexual abuse?

A good therapist will be nonjudgmental and possibly demonstrate active listening, repeating back what the client says to show that they have understood. These skills allow people to feel comfortable discussing their traumatic experiences openly. Some important treatment goals are to restore a sense of safety and to rebuild confidence. In addition to working one-on-one with the patient, a therapist might bring in supportive family members to assist the client.

Do you have to talk extensively about sexual abuse in therapy?

Survivors frequently find it difficult to describe what happened to them out loud. They can even still be in a state of denial if the sexual abuse occurred recently. It is important for survivors to acknowledge that what happened isn’t their fault and to challenge and reappraise any unhealthy feelings or thoughts as they arise. Art therapy and play therapy are useful non-verbal means of communication for some survivors.

How long does treatment for sexual abuse take?

Recovery from sexual abuse can be a long and difficult process. Some survivors are able to move on naturally on their own, given time, while others require the guidance of a trained therapist. Therapy needs vary and can range from a few sessions to months or even years. Healing from sexual abuse takes time, and everyone’s journey will look a little different.

Can trauma symptoms caused by sexual abuse come back after treatment?

As occurs in many cases of trauma, survivors of sexual abuse may experience PTSD-like symptoms long after the abuse has ceased or after an initial round of treatment has occurred. In such a case, there is evidence that prolonged exposure therapy is a useful treatment for survivors, and may be more efficacious than supportive counseling alone. While triggers may continue to cause distress, the idea is that, with time and repeated exposure, their power will fade, allowing survivors to move on with their lives.
