Aisha Cowley, M.Ed., Ed. S.
Resident in Counseling (resident license pending board approval)
I deeply believe that everyone deserves a space to feel safe and safely express themselves regardless of their age, ethnicity, background, or beliefs. I also believe that each person’s struggle is real, and I am devoted to making sure that each client I work with is heard and feels heard.
I am passionate about helping others understand, strengthen and use their natural ability to be resilient during and after times of crisis. When helping clients, I strive to meet them wherever they are emotionally and developmentally; in session, I use principles from CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) to promote greater self-awareness, teach and encourage healthy coping skills, and increase independence.
I received my Master’s and Education Specialist degrees in Counselor Education from the University of Florida, where I specialized in mental health counseling. I recently relocated to Virginia from Florida and am excited to be working in private practice to provide care to other regions or the country.
I have nearly 10 years of experience providing counseling services to individuals of all ages, with specific and extensive experience in working with children, adolescents and families. My experience includes working with trauma, anxiety, depression, Autism, ADHD, and disruptive/impulse-control disorders.
