About me

Therapy is your space to be your true self. This means to allow yourself to feel vulnerable and express the more difficult emotions, such as anger and sadness. We are not perfect and we have learned many messages from our surroundings, while growing up. Therapy is where you can unlearn and reframe some of the harmful messages you received. Therapy is your space to heal from the more challenging life events, without judgment. It is also your space to focus on how to utilize your strengths and grow towards acceptance to be the best version of yourself, however you come to define that.

 

While in undergraduate studies, I learned about the numerous emotional concerns, traumas, and daily life stressors that women and individuals of color endure. My passion in this field has stemmed from wanting to support women and families to recognize their full potential. Through our work together, we can reflect on how you can flourish independently and grow within your relationships. Unconditional support, that may not have been formed in early childhood, has an opportunity to form in our later relationships.

 

I am mainly informed by attachment theory, while utilizing a psychodynamic and multicultural lens. I think about how our early childhood experiences have impacted our current interpersonal relationships. I also think about how our identities have been shaped by our cultures, including race, ethnicity, class, religion, gender, and sexuality. Using all of these approaches, I can reflect on where our values and worries have stemmed from and how they can be traced back to intergenerational patterns. My therapeutic style is collaborative and trauma informed. My unique, yet collective experiences, as a child of immigrant parents and as a Bangladeshi woman of color, provide me with the ability to recognize why family and cultures are so important in the therapeutic work. I also believe just because some norms may be cultural doesn’t make them okay. 

 

I recognize the stigma of reaching out for extra support, but I will be here with you every step of the way. If you feel ready to take the next step, please feel free to set up a complimentary 15 minute consultation: calendly.com/farzanarahman
