Camesha L. Jones
Hi! I’m Camesha and I’m excited that you’ve found me here on Ayana Therapy. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Illinois and the Founder of Sista Afya Community Mental Wellness.
I’ve spent the last 8 years of my career serving women and young adults individually and in group settings. I primarily work with young adults who are in a transitional period of life by helping them to overcome feelings of depression, anxiety, and stress. I enjoy working with people to transform their mental well-being so then can have a thriving, full, and whole life. I am dedicated to working together with you to discover your inner strength, while digging deep to understand experiences from the past that are impacting you today.
I believe in radical social work practice by viewing mental wellness through a social justice lens by being attentive to issues of race, gender, income, environment, & religion/spirituality in therapy sessions. I also believe in the importance of integrating important parts on one's culture into your healing journey. My therapeutic approach is collaborative & I utilize therapeutic techniques including: solution-focused, cognitive-behavioral, & dialectical behavior therapy. I believe that healing is a beautiful and complex process. I am here to do the healing work with you so you can have the vibrant life you deserve!
