On the inside, you are confused, hurting, and you don't like to feel this way. You feel free when you become intoxicated, binged, yell at those closest to you, sometimes, you find yourself alone staring and thinking. You feel something, you are just not able to say exactly what's bothering you. The more you try to pretend everything is okay, the more you see yourself losing your grip on things around you. You tell yourself, things will get better, you put your best smile on for the world, it continues to get worse.
All individuals and relationships have unique challenges and strengths. My goals is to help you focus on your strengths and work on those things that threatened the vitality of it. The difficulties we experience, and despite what we may have been taught to believe, are sometimes really our friend.
In this Collaborative therapy, which means I take the stance that you are the expert about your lived experiences and my teacher. It is an invitation that I am willing to learn and participate with you in your story.

Nadirah was very helpful and insightful. She helped give me clarity on several different issues that I was struggling with. She's patient and gives useful tools.
I’ve only had a few sessions and Nadirah has always been supportive and helpful. She checks in with me frequently just to see how I’m doing. She has been wonderful!
Very helpful and would definitely recommend her
I appreciate my counselor checking in with me once a week since I’ll usually only feel inclined to message her when something goes terribly wrong and I feel out of control. Her messaging me to check in reminds me that she’s there and that I do have someone to go to now that I can trust and confide in
