Warda Aden, MA

Outpatient Psychotherapist Clinical Trainee

“It is not the bruises on the body that hurt. It is the wounds of the heart and the scars on the mind.”
As your therapist, my goal is to bring a genuine, authentic, and accepting space to help you navigate through this complex world we live in. I see myself as a guide and my approach is very much rooted in the thought that every individual inherently holds the capacity for growth, resilience, and positive transformation – and I am here to help you see it too.
Authenticity is my strong suit as a therapist. I bring my genuine self into our sessions, whether it involves offering encouragement or providing gentle feedback.
I am deeply committed to supporting individuals across diverse populations, with a particular focus on those who identify as BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, Persons of Color), first-generation individuals, and those with intersectional identities. I’m genuinely excited to welcome anyone seeking to collaborate on their healing journey, and I can’t wait to embark on this meaningful path together.

Professional Experience

I have been working in the mental health field since 2018, initially supporting adolescents with severe emotional disturbance (SED) in a residential setting. I later transitioned to providing Adult Rehabilitative Mental Health Services (ARMHS), both in-home and community environments for adults. Throughout, I’ve engaged with a diverse range of individuals dealing with various mental health diagnoses, including behavioral disorders and trauma.

I incorporate diverse modalities, such as a holistic and culturally responsive approach, strength-based and client-centered techniques, motivational interviewing, dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).
