Aigalesala T. Afalava, MA, LMHC

Aigalesala (Sala) is one of very few licensed mental health therapists in the state of Washington who is of Samoan, Pacific Islander descent. She is fluent in her native Samoan language and uses it to educate, empower, and expand the awareness of mental health across various generations in her community.

Sala closely works with the Asia Pacific Cultural Center (APCC) in servicing the Asian American Native Hawaiian Pacific Islander (AANHPI) community through workshops and community conversations regarding mental health in addition to sponsored therapy sessions.

In addition, Sala also provides counseling services to clients at her privately owned practice, New Hope Counseling PLLC. The underrepresentation of clinician providers in WA and the U.S. inspired Sala to pursue a PsyD. Sala is a third-year doctorate student in Clinical Psychology at Northwest University, Kirkland.
