I am a Mental Health Counselor- LP with experience utilizing an integrative Person Centered approach pulling from aspects of CBT, ACT, relational, trauma-informed, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness, and Play Therapy. I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults in group and individual sessions in outpatient, private practice, inpatient long term care, and community residential settings. I have experience working with those struggling to deal with sadness, stress, relationship issues, and loss. I also have knowledge and experience working with the LGBTQ+ community and understand the unique challenges that this population faces.
I have been trained through a multicultural perspective and my therapeutic style is one of a person centered approach. This means that I take into account your unique perspective of the world and work with you to create the best possible healing space for you personally. My work focuses on helping you gain insight while together we work collaboratively towards growth, understanding, healing.
Beginning your journey towards improving your mental wellbeing can be overwhelming but my approach to therapy is to meet you where you are and support your healing. Therapy provides you with a safe, non-judgmental space to process and feel heard while supporting you to gain the means and tools to cope with life.
I am a Mental Health Counselor - LP. I graduated from Chicago's Adler University with a Master's of Art in Counseling: Art Therapy. My therapeutic approach is tailored to each person's needs and strengths, as I have experience working with a diverse group of clients and families, and believe no two clients or families are the same. I assist clients in processing mental health needs (anxiety, depression, personality disorders, substance use, trauma, crisis, etc.) as well as everyday concerns (school or work, relationships, communication skills, life transitions, self-care, and overall self-esteem).
My approach empowers individuals to take an active role within their treatment and be the expert in their own process. I provide support through discussion-based counseling, and am here to guide you through your journey by utilizing various exercises, skills, and coping techniques. Additionally, if conversation seems intimidating or difficult, I am trained to integrate creative arts therapies in session to offer a safe environment where clients can express themselves freely without judgement.
My goal is to allow clients and their families to utilize our sessions to comfortably communicate and process their needs, and further develop skills that reinforce their continued growth outside of therapy.
My name is Chris and I am a Mental Health Counselor-LP. I graduated from John Jay College of Criminal Justice where I received my Master’s in Forensic Mental Health Counseling. I specialized in trauma and counseling survivors of traumatic experiences. I have experience treating depression, anxiety, PTSD, mood disorders, personality disorders and schizophrenia. I have provided counseling for people from all walks of life. I practice with cultural humility meaning I aim to fully understand all the facets of one’s identity and how they interact with the world around them. All clients may have their own stories but they all work towards a similar goal: to lead a happier and healthier life. We work together to get to that point. I trained using the cognitive-behavioral approach to therapy but have incorporated elements of other approaches in order to have a more comprehensive therapeutic style. This style allows me to use a wide array of techniques to better tailor therapy sessions towards an individual client’s needs. Together we will build the skills necessary to navigate life in a fulfilling and healthy way.
My name is Ramsha and I am a Mental Health Counseling Intern. My goal is to help you heal your relationships, reclaim your freedom and find fulfillment in life.
I have extensive experience working with individuals, couples and
children. I am the eldest daughter of immigrants, and I have grown up in a
South Asian Muslim family. My belief is that all of us have the ability to create lasting change and fulfillment for ourselves and within our relationships. However, in order to do that we are called to make the darkness conscious via self-awareness and ultimately, self-transcendence.
The energy I bring to therapy is infused with intuitive guidance, compassion, vulnerability and optimism; it is a collaborative, tailor-made approach to every client that enlightens each individual story. My commitment to being a lifelong advocate for those who are looking for support with the desire to heal is what drew me to become a therapist. As an avid reader, author and curious poet, I am always seeking innovative applications that continuously enhance the therapeutic process for my clients.
