Thank you for your interest in learning more about me. My name is Farhat Hasan, and I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Texas. I have an Educational Specialist degree in Counseling from Mississippi State University and a Master of Education degree in Counseling from the University of Mississippi. I have 9 years of experience as a counselor in both face-to-face and online modalities and have provided services to clients from diverse backgrounds in a variety of settings including schools, residential drug rehabilitation centers, in-patient, outpatient, and in group homes.
My numerous professional experiences in hospitals, rehabilitation centers, clinics, and in schools have equipped me with an exceptional set of abilities and clinical expertise, which help me assist my clients in reaching their unique goals.
I have experience working with anxiety, depression, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anger management, family conflict, relationship conflicts, drug abuse, post-partum stress, and trauma/abuse. I also have experience working with depression, intellectual/developmental disabilities, mild autism, international students/spouses, and immigrant populations.
My counseling philosophy is based on accepting the individual (including/considering their background), life experiences, and personal beliefs. My counseling approach is client-centered - I work with clients together to help them develop insight and to identify their strengths, which they can use immediately to make changes. I also help them monitor that change, so that they can continue to work toward their goals. I will be there to guide, encourage and, if appropriate, challenge them, to help them see and take appropriate steps on their own to overcome their obstacles.
Most of all, I offer a listening ear to hear and authenticate client’s thoughts and emotions and help them build a plan to facilitate moving forward. Therapy can be a fun and simple journey with me, and I always work with my clients where they stand in that moment. It takes huge strength and will-power to seek help. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

I have had 4 sessions with Farhat and in all the 4 of them I ended up feeling better than before. Not because there were things said to me to make me feel better but because they were explained in the way that made my healing easier. It's not easy to get over any trauma but with proper counseling and support you can get out of any trauma big or small. In my sessions I learned to consider my feelings and to be true to myself. I learned to heal you have to forgive yourself for things you couldn't control and how there are all kinds of people in this world that we come across and how to deal with them. At times you feel things that you can't share with anyone because you are afraid people might judge you for feeling this way. In Farhat's sessions I could talk about my feelings without having to worry about anything.
I have greatly benefited from counseling with Farhat through addressing my experience as an immigrant and addressing my concerns with substance abuse, anxiety and self confidence. Farhat is a great counselor because she listens closely to what you are trying to address and is able to give me some insight into what I am battling within myself.
Working with Farhat is wonderful and I feel like in her work she is really helping me release old traumas and wounds that I have been wanting to look at. for a long time. Her approach is realistic and gentle but you do get answers. I would definitely recommend Farhat.
Farhat is a patient and engaging counselor. She listened to all my concerns and troubles and encouraged me to introspectively think about them and deal with them. She provided structured suggestions and feedback to solve my problem which were very helpful. She is also highly responsive and supportive as a counselor. I would highly recommend her.
Farhat has been instrumental to helping me feel good, period. There is no doubt in my mind that I would have gotten over my difficult break up on my own, but I believe it would have taken me a multiple of months longer on my own. Working with her was not easy, I found the first several sessions difficult and hurtful because I was forced to do a lot of reflecting, but now I feel good about where I am and am so grateful for her guidance and professionalism. I recommend Farhat to anyone who is grieving from a loss and needs to move on.
My experience with Farhat was very helpful and made life more positive.
I have found the support that Farhat has offered me very comforting and reassuring. She has helped me unhinge feelings that I was burying and festering by suggesting ways to move forward. I feel I can progress by acknowledging that the rift with my family has not been my choice and have been advised by Farhat how to manage the situation without being resentful or involving others. I was concerned that the mental trauma I have experienced would and could manifest itself with ill health, I now feel more positive and stronger. I will continue to use the tooIs I now have and endeavor to keep myself in a state of mind that I can manage regardless of changing situations. Thank you Farhat.
Farhat is amazing! She really opened up my mind to some things that I was not aware of. My relationship with my mother and suitor are so much better now because I understand them so much more with her help. I also have a better outlook on life, I’m sleeping better and doing better generally and I’m really just grateful she was specifically assigned to me. I love her! Thank you Farhat for caring enough to help me xxx
