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 with active diagnoses of anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, 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!

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.

Faheda is very insightful and a great listener.
She reads all my journal entries and provides insightful and helpful advice and support.

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.
