About me

I am a licensed clinical social worker in South Carolina with over 10 years of experience working with people of all ages and backgrounds who are experiencing issues such as depression, anxiety, ADHD, grief and loss and mood disorders. I've also worked with individuals experiencing parenting concerns and self esteem concerns.

Within the therapeutic relationship, we will work to develop goals to support your individual needs and move towards change. We will work toward positive change by implementing an number of evidenced based practices such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solutions Focused Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. Through self-reflection, therapy can help you develop your capacity to be more self-aware, challenge negative thoughts and build towards a more safe and healthy life functioning.

I believe that prioritizing one's mental health is an investment in self, it is an active step towards your healing journey.

I look forward to working with you.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Kafayat (Ayoka) Hannah. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Teen Counseling might be different.

Ayoka is very intuitive and is great at getting my daughter to open up and try new things. She checks in with me and lets me know what tools she’s suggested to my daughter so I can help her in using those tools. Ayoka is very easy to talk and we love her!

Ayoka has a kind and calm disposition! I can feel comfortable talking as a woman of color and I feel safe with the topics I share. Her suggestions have helped me navigate day to day experiences and she lets me talk through my emotions.

K. Ayoka has been great this far. She's touched base throughout the week, and encouraged us to work on areas needing improvement. The format for our sessions is super convenient and conducive to our busy schedules. Thanks so much!
