About me

I am a licensed Mental Health therapist in Missouri with over 8 years of experience in the mental health field. I have experience in counseling individuals , couples and families. I got my BS in Psychology from University of Central Missouri. I later received my MS is Mental Health counseling from Walden University. I've worked with clients with a range of concerns such as depression , anxiety, relationships, infidelity , trust issues , and premarital concerns. Along with working with a range of diagnosis I also work with those from many different backgrounds.

My therapy style is empathic, genuine, and honest. My fellow therapist gave me the nickname of the rapport building therapist because I have a way of connecting with my clients that draws them into trusting the process. My approach is a combination of cognitive behavioral therapy, reality therapy, humanistic, and psychodynamic. I like to meet clients where they are in the stages of change . I understand that everyone handles things differently and somethings are sensitive and hard to address. Therapy is not an easy thing to do and that is why I am on the journey with you.

Whenever you are ready, so am I.
I look forward to meeting you .

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

Written on Feb 09, 2024 after therapy with Ayanna for 11 months on issues concerning relationship

Ayanna is so great! she’s like a best friend where I tell everything to. I had to take a small break due to my job schedule, but the time I had away from her, I took her exercises and advice with me and it’s helped me become a different person. now I have other things to work on. as we healed one side it’s time to heal the other! I love her so much and recommend her 10000%.
