Faheda Rasool

LCSW, LMSW

About me

Hello! My name is Faheda and I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) in the state of Florida. I earned my graduate degree from Florida Gulf Coast University in 2018. I completed my internship with Lutheran Services Florida working with individuals who have experienced mental health concerns stemming from childhood trauma. Upon graduating, I became a full time, in home therapist that provided family therapy to juveniles involved in the justice system, as well as their parents and caregivers, using the FFT modality. I have since worked with the CBT, DBT, and solution focused modalities throughout my practice. I have a private practice as well, working primarily with adults facing various life transitions, in addition to individuals struggling with symptoms of anxiety, depression, relationship challenges, and more. I can help by talking through some of the specific challenges you may be facing, or by delving into past trauma and how it affects your relationships, goals, and aspirations. Together, we'll create a treatment plan with some small, obtainable goals based on what brought you to therapy. We'll follow up on these goals monthly to assess for progress. We will create some coping skills, and practice them in session via role playing and open discussions to help you feel more comfortable as you implement them in your daily routine. The idea of therapy can be nerve wracking. My goal is to make your experience as pleasant as possible, while helping to provide the necessary tools needed for successful change. Remember that therapy is a safe space for you to openly discuss the challenges you are facing. Here, there will be no judgement or biases. I look forward to working with you!

I'm thankful to have Faheda in my life now to help me navigate through some things and work through issues from my childhood. She's kind, thoughtful and a great listener.

Honestly the best experience I’ve ever had with therapy. She has helped me so much in just a short amount of time and I’m very excited to see how things go in the future!

Faheda has been the light in my darkness. I was reluctant to admit that I needed to speak to someone about me, and my life, but Faheda and how she presented herself to me from the onset, has been life changing. I never knew how to vocalize what was running through my mind until I shared my thoughts with Faheda. Her approach is inviting and comfortable and I am in a better place in my life because of her and this wonderful platform of therpy!
Thank you, sincerely!
I highly recommend Faheda Rasool!!

I was nervous about starting therapy, but had an idea of what I hoped to get out of it, and it's amazing how much Faheda is giving me exactly what I was hoping for. She listens, validates, challenges, and offers constructive paths forward to mold myself into the person I want to be. She's warm and engaging, and I feel so fortunate that I was matched with her!

Starting therapy for the first time was giving me anxiety and I wasn’t sure how I could open up to a stranger. Faheda made that so much easier with her wonderful empathy, intelligent understanding, and extraordinary listening skills. Faheda is a focused and patient listener, who gave me space to think aloud and work thru thoughts, and despite my ramblings, would respond with a thoughtful question, comment or affirmation. Her guidance and encouragement allowed me to feel more and more comfortable. She has a very calm and focused manner that truly made me feel like she was hearing me and that I was her whole focus. Remembering details of previous conversations, establishing goals she helped me come up with and work towards, and consistently reminding me of statements I didn’t know I even needed to be hearing all made my experience with wholly rewarding and valuable. I also greatly appreciated her starting sessions on time, and even allowing room for conversations to conclude at a natural point rather than just cutting me off at the end of our allotted time. I am so grateful for my experience with Faheda and highly recommend as a therapist.

This was my first experience in therapy Faheda made it such a smooth experience. I felt comfortable sharing my stories and she knew exactly what to say, something about her calming voice makes everything feel better.

Faheda is wonderful. She has a great approach that is very focused on pinpointing the essential needs of her client. After the first session, she had already drafted a comprehensive treatment plan and gave me the space to work with her to shape it exactly to my needs. She offers great tools to really guide you outside of the sessions. I have found that doing the exercises she recommends really help me improve and give us so much to work on throughout our sessions each week. Highly recommended and very appreciated.

I have felt someone who has understood me and greatly appreciated Faheda's help. I feel calmer and able to apply emotional solutions that have been talked about in sessions.

I worked with Faheda for 4 weeks and there has been so much growth in that time, in terms of confidence, self awareness and a huge reduction in my anxiety. She truly knows how to make people feel comfortable and has an exceptional approach to counselling. I will forever be grateful for her and our sessions. Thank you

I have really enjoyed working with Faheda. The counselling she gives me is good and has helped me see other perspectives but I feel there is some expertise that would benefit me personally which she doesn’t have (which tbh is very particular to my case).
This doesn’t take any merit from her, I am happy to have her as a counsellor. It’s more about being marched with a counsellor that would have this specialist need - which is rare.

Work with me!
