Inayah Abdul Matin, CCMA, RBT (Intern Therapist)
Inayah (she/her/hers) is an intern at the Center for Growth for the year 2021- 2022. She has completed her graduate studies in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Walden University. She is a member of The National Society of Leadership and Success, and Sigma Alpha Pi (ΣΑΠ). Through her studies and experience she has taken an eclectic approach towards counseling.
Inayah completed her undergraduate studies in Psychology and Applied Behavior Science. Her experience working in the schools as a substitute teacher made her realize that there was a lot of help needed not just with the children but within the families and community. Instead of taking the test to become a certified teacher, Inayah studied and became a National Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) working in New Jersey, Delaware and Pennsylvania, using multiple evidenced-based behavioral approaches needed for individual client situations. Her experience as a RBT has led to her working in homes, schools and the community, gaining experience in case management, multiple disabilities including bipolar disorder, chronic depression, PTSD, ADHD, schizophrenia, autism, ODD, OCD and developmental disorders.
She thrives on helping others. Through behavior modification, self-sufficient and coping skills, individuals will learn how to advocate for themselves in a way that leads to better understanding and communication, a sense of self worth and empowerment creating a healthier and happier life.
