Zakia Ovington is a Pre-Licensed Clinician and Intern Therapist. Her private pay rate is $75 for a 55-minute appointment. In addition, she is an in-network provider with Cigna, Regence, and Kaiser (PPO only) insurance plans.
I believe that therapy is a collaborative process of curiosity, healing, and change. Through a client-centered, trauma-informed approach, I support clients on their mental health journey through empathic understanding, empowerment, and a belief in their ability to evolve and heal.
I want to help you identify and shift unconscious self-defeating patterns of thinking, feeling, and acting. I believe that with greater self-awareness of your early history along with your unique longings and desires, you can make more satisfying choices, develop more adaptive coping mechanisms, and discover new ways of relating to others.
I value cultural humility, suspension of judgment, meeting clients where they are, and respecting diverse experiences and points of view. My approach to counseling integrates evidence-based techniques, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Existential Psychotherapy, Motivational Interviewing (MI), Internal Family Systems, and Attachment-Based Therapy.
In addition to my experiences as a therapist, I have extensive experience in technology spanning two decades with companies like Microsoft, Oracle Corp., Salesforce and GE Digital. I am a good fit for individuals confronting the unique stresses of working in highly competitive and stressful industries.
Zakia sees clients via secure video Telehealth only on Thursday evenings and Friday and Saturday by appointment. Email her at email@example.com to check current availability.
