My name is Ayanna, and I specialize in trauma and couples therapy.
It is important for me to provide services that are LGBTQ+ affirming and inclusive. At the Haven Center we help individuals and couples navigating traditional relational issues, open relationships (ENM), polyamory, and other non-traditional relationship arrangements. I use a mind/body approach to support individuals who’ve been silenced, belittled, dismissed, criticized, or ignored- to live more heart-fully.I have experience working with persons who have endured polyvictimization, racial-based trauma, chronic stress, relational discord, loss of identity, hope and/or security and those navigating the process of self-exploration, working toward self-acceptance.
It is my hope that if you are reading this, you have taken the time to congratulate yourself for reaching this stage in your healing journey…and if you have not, can we allow a moment to give ourselves a warm embrace for all that we’ve witnessed, experienced and overcome thus far?
To help maximize your outcomes, I aim to cultivate trauma sensitive, adaptive, and expansive spaces that offer opportunities for centering, attunement, cognitive processing, embodiment exercises and strengthening mind, body, and soul connections.
