Aysha is a postdoctoral fellow who has her doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology. Through the postdoctoral fellowship at TREC DC, Aysha will continue to develop evidence-based skills to work with trauma populations. 


Aysha has a passion for working with all trauma populations, especially those who have experienced relational trauma, developmental trauma (trauma that occurred in early childhood), intergenerational trauma, domestic violence, sexual assault, bullying and harassment, and racial trauma. 


Prior to TREC DC, Aysha completed her training at university counseling centers where she treated young adults who experienced a range of trauma concerns. Aysha gained a special interest in trauma advocacy which led her to develop and co-facilitate support spaces, groups, and trauma-informed workshops on campus. Aysha is thrilled to join TREC DC for her postdoctoral year!
