About me

 

 

As we tread through life’s challenges and its ups and downs, seeking support can often feel overwhelming without trusted guidance. As you take the first steps in reaching out for help, I want to recognize and celebrate your courage and commitment towards creating positive changes in your life! Whether you have experienced deep-rooted trauma, are contemplating pieces of your identity, struggling with clashing of cultural expectations and identity development, or are coping with major life changes and transitions, I am here for you. I am dedicated towards creating a safe, warm, open, and empathetic space for us to navigate through your feelings of anger, sadness, shame, guilt, or even confusion. When we let our fears overcome our self-worth, we tend to feel self-defeated. Together, we will work to reframe these feelings that often deplete our energy and highlight the pieces that make you, YOU.

 

I approach counseling and implement skills and techniques from various theories, including Adlerian, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Gestalt counseling. I help to strengthen your self-awareness and individuality to establish authenticity in all areas of your life. As an American-Pakistani Muslim, I have vast experience working with clients from a wide-range of experiences and background, including immigrants, first-generation Americans, and victims of domestic violence. I have a passion to connect with other South Asian individuals in the DFW area, to address the inherent struggles of being a person of color in the U.S. and learn techniques and skills to cope with the concerns of juggling multiple identities. I believe that representation is important and advocating for your mental health when intertwined with your cultural identity is at the crux of my counseling philosophy.

 

I see clients who experience general, social, and cultural-based anxiety, depression, addiction, grief, and major life transitions. I specialize in trauma-informed counseling and working with children, adolescents and adults to face their concerns in a collaborative, encouraging, and relational manner. Appointments are available at both Mighty Oaks Counseling and Wellness and Mindful Journey Counseling and Wellness in Plano. Reach out today and let’s work together to heal.
