She creates a safe space where clients can determine their needs and objectives, facilitating self-discovery and positive growth. Fatima uses a holistic approach, incorporating various therapeutic techniques to address each client’s unique needs. Person-Centered Therapy (PCT) understands the client’s experience from their perspective, promoting the innate ability to change and grow. Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) focuses on setting realistic, identifiable goals and finding solutions in the present time. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) challenges negative thoughts and distortions in thinking to change patterns and improve feelings and behaviors. Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) identifies and replaces self-defeating thoughts and feelings with healthier, more productive beliefs.

She is also well-versed in addressing cultural and generational differences impacting young adults’ mental health.

In her free time, Fatima enjoys exploring challenging recipes from different cultures, watching criminal documentaries, and visiting new coffee shops with family and friends. She looks forward to starting this journey with you to achieve your goals and become the best version of yourself.
