About me

Therapy is one of the best decisions you can make for yourself but it can feel nerve wracking. I want to make therapy comfortable and relaxing for everyone from the beginning. I want to achieve a strong therapeutic relationship by getting to know more about you in our first session. I use a warm, empathetic and non-judgmental approach in meeting where you are today and guiding where you want to go. My goal is to provide a safe space in which you feel comfortable to speak about your concerns, issues and goals. Understanding your core values, needs, wants, and goals will help bring out the best version of YOU!

Humaira’s main approaches are Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy although she derives from other modalities based on the client’s goals and needs. CBT is an evidence-based approach that helps clients understand how their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are interconnected. Psychodynamic therapy aims to uncover emotions, thoughts, beliefs and early life experiences that may affect one’s worldview and relationships with others. Humaira challenges clients to explore the root cause of their symptoms, gaining new awareness into their emotional and relationship patterns. She provides a safe space for clients to feel heard and work on themselves in session. Humaira motivates clients to implement coping skills and techniques that they have learned in session to utilize throughout their life.
