About me

Hello and welcome! My name is Shahreen and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the State of New York and Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of New Jersey. Therapy is a bridge of communication that fosters healing, growth and insight. It’s important for clients to feel safe and to have their voice heard and truly be seen.

I’ve worked with individuals who are experiencing life’s stressors, addictions, depression, anxiety, trauma and more. I also assist clients who are struggling with losses, interpersonal relationships, stress, anger and self-esteem. I’m flexible in my treatment approach and have a collaborative approach to help achieve your goals.

My theoretical orientation is an integrative approach that incorporates humanistic, psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral ideologies, which allows me the flexibility to give individualized care. Clients are encouraged to develop goals they hope to accomplish; explore their thoughts & feelings & the root causes of their core beliefs; learning to challenge themselves; & create healthy coping tools to assist in their healing process. I am a certified in Grief Recovery Method, a training designed specifically to assist individuals who wish to heal and cope with loss through group and individual counseling. I am also trained in assisting clients who have symptoms of trauma, utilizing Trauma-Informed Treatment Protocol to assist clients in addressing and coping with trauma, in addition to utilizing Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), which further alleviates symptoms and emotional distress resulting from disturbing life experiences.

Let’s work together and help you live your best life and accomplish goals you set out for yourself. My goal is to provide you with a safe and calm (with sprinkles of humor) environment that will allow yourself to speak freely and overcome barriers. I’m here for you and it is my commitment to come alongside, challenge, and encourage you to be physically, mentally, and emotionally equipped to deal with life stressors, while also developing a deeper understanding of one’s self. You got this! I’m here for you!
