My name is Ayisha Winn, I am a licensed clinical social worker with extensive experience as a Clinical Therapist. I received a Master’s Degree in Social Work from California State University, Long Beach with a Mental Health concentration in 2013. My work history and education has afforded me the opportunity to gain knowledge and experience in being able to work with a diverse population of children and adults with developmental disabilities/mental illnesses, and dual diagnoses. Most of my experience is in the community mental health setting in crisis and intensive programs such as Full Service Partnership (FSP), Wraparound, Recovery Resilience and Re-Integration (RRR), and SB82 working with youth and families who struggle with intensive behavioral and emotional challenges, familial issues, placement removals, and placement stabilization. Throughout my years working in community mental health, I’ve gained a substantial amount of experience with children, adolescents, transitional age youth, and families (biological and foster families). My experience also includes working in the medical clinic setting with adults and the elderly population who struggle with numerous mental health, medical related adjustment conditions, and substance use/dependency disorders. I am experienced working with clients ages 5 through 70.
I am dedicated to providing exceptional clinical care to my clients through use of creative intervention strategies, empathy, providing a safe space, and developing lasting and impactful therapeutic alliances. My energy, positive attitude, use of a non-judgmental approach, active listening skills, motivation, passion and insightful support allow my clients the ability to feel both comfortable and supported in treatment under my care.
