About My Clients
My clients are adults who are looking to increase insight and gain tools needed to return to being an active participant in their life rather than just going through the motions. Whether struggling with anxiety, trauma, burn out, parenting or relational stress, I am here to help. As a woman and mother myself, I understand the weight of juggling the needs of our children, partners, family, and career. It can cause us to feel overwhelmed and leads to putting our own needs and wants aside.
My Background and Approach
My name is Shakiyla Craft, I am a licensed clinical social worker, working with adults individually. I help adults like you: those that have chosen to prioritize their healing and reclaim their lives! My passion for helping others started at an early age. To me, therapy is about deepening the connection and understanding we have with ourselves. You come with your experience of yourself and your life story. I listen, support and help you overcome the barriers that interfere with you living the life you desire. We'll want to consider your earlier life experiences, ways you've learned to cope and the feelings and thoughts that go with them. We’ll look beyond what you are experiencing in the moment to search more deeply utilizing mindfulness skills. We will build upon the strengths you already have to help you adjust through inevitable waves of life.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I take a culturally sensitive, trauma-informed, and strength-based approach to therapy crafted to the client's needs. In my spare time, I enjoy doing yoga, gardening, reading, & spending time with family and friends.
