Fatim Sankare


About Me

My name is Fatim and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with five years of experience working with clients in the New York City area. In my experience I have worked with young adults (20s-30s) individuals and groups in a variety of settings. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, career challenges, and navigating self-esteem. I also have experience working with unique populations and identities such as women, people of color and members of the LGBT community.

As a Therapist, I use a holistic person-centered approach and I believe that you have the answers to important questions in your life. I am there to help you get closer to making sense of this process. I have a counseling style that is warm, supportive, encouraging and interactive. I believe building trust with each client is essential to the growth and development of the therapeutic relationship. Throughout our sessions, I aim to provide a safe space for you to share your thoughts, ask questions and try out new techniques. I use a person centered approach along with evidence-based interventions to help you get closer to reach your goals.

As a therapist, I believe in working together to get a better understanding of who you are and how you can reach your goals. I want to help you get ready for that next step.

It takes bravery and courage to ask for help. If you are ready to take that next step, I am here to support you.

I really appreciate all the help I've received talking with Fatim, I know we never actually had a real session but we did chat a lot and it gave me a place to vent without judgement. Fatim helped me with quite a bit of self realization in the process. So for that I thank you.

I think Fatim was very patient and understanding with me, and I felt like she was able to sympathize and empathize with my situation very much. She was warm and caring. The materials she provided for me was also very helpful, and she was always very responsive and available for the times I needed to talk to her. I would definitely recommend the services she provides to others.
