Welcome! My name is Farah and I am a LCSW-C . I am here to assist you or your loved one on their own personal healing journey. I have almost 2 decades of experience working with women, children and families and feel privileged to do this work. I have my Masters Degree from Columbia University in New York, where I was born and raised. I am a South Asian, Muslim woman and mother. I have a unique set of skills working with children and adolescents who also are struggling with navigating this world of social media, being first or second generation Americans and dealing with the pressures of society.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first session together, we’ll start with brief introduction, and then dive into the specific challenges you’re facing. This will help us to create a Taylor plan for us to work through in your follow up sessions.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I am a South Asian, Muslim woman and mother. I was born and raised in New York City. Not only do I understand a lot about growing up in an immigrant family but I also uniquely relate to growing up and navigating life as a first generation American. I have a strong sense of humor and often use that in forging genuine partnerships with those I work with. I understand life can be incredibly unpredictable and stressful and my job is to help you get to where you want to be.

My treatment methods

Strength-Based

A strengths-based treatment method is an approach that focuses on identifying and leveraging an individual's strengths, resources, and capabilities to address challenges and achieve goals. Instead of solely focusing on deficits or weaknesses, this method emphasizes identifying and building upon existing strengths to promote growth, resilience, and positive change. It recognizes that every individual has unique strengths that can be utilized to improve their well-being and overcome obstacles.
