Her love for mental health started her freshman year of high school when she took her first of many psychology courses.

As your counselor, Zakiya utilizes person-centered, cognitive behavioral, and mindfulness approaches within her counseling practice.

She also has experience working with individuals that may be experiencing stress related to career development and school related concerns. She is committed to providing outstanding services to all clients. She understands that every client’s journey is unique, and she aims to provide each individual with the resources and support needed to excel at their own personal growth.
