About Me

Hey!

My name is Alandria Mustafa. I am a licensed therapist in the states of Florida, North Carolina, and South Carolina. I am Black and Queer. I work with a diverse demographic of clients and wholeheartedly believe that the intersections of our specific identities, often times stigmatized and marginalized identities, inform the way in which we see ourselves, our environment, and how we participate in the relationships and systems we choose to be a part of. 

 

I'm originally from Miami, FL and spent many years in Gainesville, FL attending the University of Florida for both my Bachelor's and Master's degrees. After graduating with my Master's in 2015, I remained in Gainesville and began to provide mental health support to folks navigating a variety of issues, especially LGBTQIA+ related challenges, family and childhood trauma, intimate partner violence, substance use disorder, and other difficult/distressing mental health experiences. During my time in Gainesville, I became engaged in community service/work, advocacy, and consultation/facilitated trainings that were frequently identity-based and educational. 

I began my private practice at the start of the quarantine during the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic and chose to affectionately name it after the Toni Morrison book, Sula. I relocated to Charleston, SC in October 2020 to be with my partner after a long-term and long-distance relationship. I'm a bonus mom to a teenager and the human parent to two energetic and brilliant dogs named Milo and Otis. I enjoy being outdoors and love kayaking, white water rafting, hiking, and spending time at the beach. I've worked diligently to turn my brown thumb into a green thumb and am happy to say I have numerous thriving plant babies. Reclaiming nature, the outdoors, and tending to my plants has been a method of healing for me and I'm grateful to have a partner and a social support system that will get lost in the woods with me. I love to cook and am currently trying to perfect a banana bread recipe (happy to say...I'm getting close but why is baking so hard?! lol).  

I'm energized by the clients I work with and constantly inspired by the healing work we are able to do together. 

Feel free to reach out if you have any questions or would like to schedule a consultation call.
