I offer an active, evidence-based treatment style. When an individual comes for treatment, we start with an in-depth assessment and develop a collaborative treatment plan that addresses the individual's personal goals. Many of my clients show significant improvements quickly as I tend to use a short-term therapy model. These rapid improvements are possible because they take an active role in treatment and incorporate interventions outside of sessions. I specialize in anxiety disorders, OCD, PTSD and other trauma disorders, chronic pain, sleep issues and coping with chronic health conditions.

I strongly believe trauma and past experiences greatly influence our every day lives.
I believe sometimes we get to a place where we feel stuck, frustrated, or hopeless and need someone to support and assist us without judgment. My purpose is to provide a safe, compassionate space in which you can safely explore and fully understand your current struggles, gain insight and self-awareness, and help build a strong foundation in order to move toward a more balanced, healthy, and peaceful life. There are many parts that make up the whole you, which I believe we can begin to explore and develop together.

I have extensive training and knowledge working with teens and adults who have experienced abuse and trauma .
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.

Helen Keller wrote, "Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it." For those in emotional pain, life can be a dark and lonely place. When we suffer, we lose touch with our core of strength and well-being. But the resilience of the human heart offers hope for healing. I will provide reassurance through a strong bond of trust and non-judgmental acceptance. In a compassionate and supportive atmosphere, I will help you find your way back to peace and well-being.

“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.

With trauma experiences and PTSD , I specialize in the effects of trauma in your daily living and educating about trauma responses and the resulting attachment issues that affect your interpersonal relationships.
My therapy style is empathetic, insightful, reflective, humorous and goal-affirming. I have always had a "quirky" sense of humor and I love that I can bring that into session with me. Sometimes being able to laugh or to see the absurdity of life shakes loose the obstacles and anxiety. My initial goal is to connect with you and your experiences in your world, ask questions, provide feedback, and use interventions to rebuild and reinforce your sense of self and your place in the universe.

Trauma and PTSD Therapists

When should I seek treatment for trauma?

Not everyone who undergoes trauma needs therapy to heal, but many do. If, after experiencing a traumatic event, you find yourself struggling with symptoms such as nightmares, dissociation, irritability, or emotional numbness—especially if these symptoms last more than a month and are severe enough to interfere with your daily functioning—you may benefit from seeking out therapy with a trauma-informed provider.

How long does trauma therapy take?

Different types of therapy for trauma unfold on different timelines. Prolonged exposure therapy and cognitive processing therapy, for example, each take about three months, while trauma-informed CBT may last anywhere from 8 to 25 sessions. Other approaches, especially those that are less structured or that incorporate elements from multiple modalities, may be more open-ended, though many patients report feeling better within the first few months of treatment.

What happens if trauma is left untreated?

Unaddressed trauma can have serious—even devastating—effects on relationships, career, and day-to-day functioning. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can lead people to distrust or lash out at others, making it difficult to maintain intimate relationships; it can also trigger symptoms such as flashbacks or hyperreactivity that can interfere with a person’s ability to function effectively, personally and/or professionally. Some sufferers turn to drugs to find relief. Symptoms may lessen on their own with time, but there is no guarantee that PTSD will resolve on its own.

Can PTSD come back after treatment?

It is possible for PTSD symptoms to recur months or years after successful treatment. This is because, like most mental health disorders, it is not possible to “cure” PTSD, and stressful life events may cause symptoms to recur in even the most resilient individuals. There is no shame in re-experiencing PTSD symptoms nor in returning to therapy when such relapses occur; indeed, many forms of trauma therapy explicitly encourage periodic “maintenance sessions” to reinforce coping skills and ensure that symptoms stay manageable.
