We are so appreciative for the support and inquiries for therapy. At Sista Afya, we are a small organization and at this time we do not have open availability to accept new clients. In addition, we only see Clients who live in the state of Illinois. Please check back with us later in the summer. Also please check our list of preferred  mental health providers in Chicago for other great Therapists that can support you.

Asking for and seeking emotional help can be such a difficult step to take. It is even more challenging when you come from a family or culture that believes you should not "tell other people your business.” There is often an urge to hold in your emotions and a need to stay strong and present for your loved ones. Please trust that you need your needs met just as much as they do. There is a saying, “you can’t pour from an empty cup”, meaning that you must care for your own needs before you can care for those around you. It's time to take care of you.

I provide a safe space for women of all ages to share what they desire. This space will not only be a place to express and discover your needs, but also a space to find ways to fill your cup. We will work together to discover what excites you and makes you happy. 


I support people with the following conditions: anxiety, depression, trauma


I provide support in the following areas: life transitions, grief, relationships, school issues, self-esteem.


I serve: women, adults

Hi! I’m Camesha and I’m excited that you’ve found me here at Sista Afya. I am a Community Mental Wellness Advocate, Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and Servant-Leader. 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’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 elevated levels of stress. I believe in radical social work practice and view mental wellness through a social justice lens by being attentive to issues related to race, gender, income, environment, and religion/spirituality in therapy sessions.


My therapeutic approach is collaborative and I utilize therapeutic techniques including: solution-focused therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and 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. Looking forward to connecting with you. Be well!

I support people with the following conditions: depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and mood disorders​​.

I provide support in the following areas: stress, anger management, emotional regulation, life transitions, women's issues, self-esteem.

I serve: women, young adults, adults
