Taking the first step to seek therapy may be a stressful process, but it can also be one of the most empowering decisions you make in your life. My goal is to help make your experience in therapy a liberating one.
Perhaps you’ve thought about therapy, but are worried that people would judge you or perceive you differently if they found out you were seeking support. Perhaps you’re being too hard on yourself for wanting help.
But what if therapy is a space for you to slow down, process, and refocus? What if it’s an opportunity to explore yourself in a supportive and non-judgmental environment? My hope is to inspire you to discover your strengths, improve and deepen your relationships, and achieve your lifetime goals. Fulfilling your dreams is possible.
Counseling Through a Holistic Lens
Since 2016, I have been providing individual, couples, and group therapy services to people from diverse racial, ethnic, gender, socioeconomic, sexual orientation, age, and religious backgrounds. I work closely with clients who face challenges with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, substance abuse and addictions, self-esteem, life transitions, and trauma.
As a Pakistani Muslim who grew up in the United States, I am sensitive to cultural, contextual, and sociopolitical factors that impact the experiences of South Asians, Muslims, and people of color. I am committed to a therapeutic framework that advocates social justice counseling principles and addresses issues involving racism-related stress, oppression-based trauma, discrimination, microaggressions, and racial/ethnic identity development. I utilize a person-centered and solution-focused approach to make therapy a collaborative process that focuses on your needs and goals.
Instilling Hope in Relationships
Healthy communication is undoubtedly one of the most important qualities of a satisfying and fulfilling relationship. At the same time, what’s often overlooked is the importance of connection. Feeling connected to your partner not only requires good communication, but also a strong foundation of respect, compassion, and trust. Connection is feeling that you and your partner are on the same side and not in competition with one another.
It is understandable that challenges in a relationship lead to feelings of disconnection or even hopelessness. Utilizing the Gottman Method, I will work with you to learn new ways of communicating as well as revive your sense of connection and solidarity as a couple.
Life can be overwhelming and filled with uncertainty, but you don’t have to navigate through it on your own. My goal as a therapist is not only to support you in your journey but to empower you to find the path you envision for yourself. I look forward to working with you.
