Aaliyah Wilson, LMFT

Verified by Psychology Today

My name is Aaliyah Wilson and I am a licensed marriage and family therapist associate. I am able to provide individual, couples, and family therapy for adults, teens, and children 5+. My favorite therapy cliché is “You cannot pour from an empty cup.” In life it seems we are always pouring time and energy into other people and situations. Some of us forget how to slow down, refill our own cup, and allow others to pour into it as well. My goal is to help you become mindful about yourself and how that affects how you are currently navigating life. As we work together, we can find where changes can be made for the better. My areas of interest are depression, anxiety, behavioral issues, stress, self-esteem, relationship issues, life transition issues, racial identity, women’s issues, family conflict, school issues and PTSD.
