Hello! I am Dr. Kenya L. King, PhD, Licensed Psychologist and Owner of Aya Psychological and Wellness Services, LLC. I chose the “aya”, or fern, to represent the business, as ferns are known for resilience, endurance, and ability to flourish in difficult circumstances. The word “aya” is also associated with themes of goodness, care, beauty, knowledge, and strength across several languages and cultures. I developed this practice out of a desire to help people restore (or establish) balance, resilience, and resourcefulness in their lives. I provide individual and group therapy, and work with children, adults, couples, and families.My clinical expertise is fairly broad but I specialize in depression, anxiety, traumatic stress, grief, stress management, anger management, as well as issues related to improving physical health, self-esteem, and coping with chronic illness, medical conditions, and recent diagnoses.I am trained in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Prolonged Exposure (PE), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) , Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Rational Emotive Therapy (RET), Behavioral Therapy, Play Therapy, Family Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and am seeking Health Coach Certification through the American Council on Exercise (ACE).
