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!
