Welcome to my profile. My name is Shadan Ferdousi, and I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Licensed Professional Counselor in Austin TX. I have years of experience working in private practice as a solo practitioner. During my training, I had an opportunity to work in Alcohol recovery centers, work with the geriatric population, and children. I developed a sense of respect and admiration for people who want to change their lives, be sober, deal with trauma and pain, find a solution for their unique problems. Couple counseling is my specialty and Most of my clients are couples who want to improve their relationship.
Through many years I have received a positive review from my clients, and that makes me feel good about my abilities as a therapist/counselor. I have had the privilege of working with different clients and backgrounds. These experiences helped me to respect more for differences among people.
I help my clients with a relationship, grief, career problems, dealing with depression, adjusting to a new phase in their lives, going through separation and divorce, dealing with illness, anxiety, behavioral issues, ADHD, self-esteem, identity issues, addiction, and women’s issues.
I am a good listener, a creative person, enjoy relaxing activities, love traveling, and have a passion for cooking and baking. If you are going through some difficulties in your life, and you choose me to work with you, I will help you to achieve positive results.
Note: I will respond to your messages no later than the next 24 hours. Thank you.

Shadan is always there when I need to talk and has the most helpful and insightful advice. It’s so nice to talk with someone who is very understanding and wise.
Shedan is an amazing counselor to work with. I never want to miss my sessions with her. She's quick to listen before offering advice. She was able to help me accept the extra help from medication when I struggled to take that first step. She is patient and really worked through a tough time with me, and helped me rebuild trust and confidence in areas of my life where I felt I failed. I appreciate that she cares to see me progress through therapy. I couldn't have had a better match then Shedan. Thank you for your support and expertise.
Dr. Ferdousi is an amazing listener and is patient and kind. She really takes the time to see whats important and gives you a few different ways you can work through your problems and always follows up to see if any more improvment can be achived to reach your personal goal or even if it was working how and has you talk through the process so you can see for yourself why it was sucessful.
She’s kind, knowledgeable and very helpful!
Awesome fast and good contact with counselor
I began working with her during the pandemic. My initial reason for beginning therapy was to save a failing relationship. The relationship failed, but that’s okay. It failing was the catalyst for self-healing. Shadan Ferdousi helped me through it. She is a warm, kind spirited person. Completely non judgmental. I know that people say its a two way street to figuring yourself out in therapy but she definitely had a way of helping me figure myself out in ways I couldn’t do on my own. In our sessions together it didn’t take very long for us to get into the issues that were really bothering me as opposed to surface deep issues. Huge positive leaps in anger management, estranged relationships with family healed, establishing healthy boundaries with friends and family, addictions (love or substance) made manageable; I would still be working with her if it wasn’t for law restrictions prohibiting therapists from practicing outside of their state license. It grieves me to end our sessions, but I’m thankful for her help when she was permitted to give it.
Shadan is such a lovely counselor! I greatly appreciate her thoughtfulness and encouragement to “enjoy” my life.
Sharon help me in dyer need, she listen, she was accompanied to my ends when I needed it the most.
She’s amazing, and great at what she does
For our first session it was amazing. She payed close attention to me and seem to really want to help me and work with me. I’m very excited to continue to grow with her.
She is a wonderful counselor. I have only had two sessions with her, but she has made a difference. She has given me things to think about and she has helped me be able to see things differently. I feel heard and understood. I highly recommend her.
I have only just begun sessions with Shadan however right away I felt acknowledged, understood and genuinely cared for. Shadan provided multiple tools for me to utilize outside of our sessions and they helped me get through tough moments. Shadan checked in with me in between sessions through the messaging system and that made me feel I was cared for and was greatly appreciated! I highly recommend Shadan Ferdousi.
Shaden listens and makes sure she’s understanding the root of the problems you’re facing. She emphasizes, guides you, and gives you tools to help you even outside of your counseling session. I appreciate her so much!
Very helpful and understanding, you can tell she is here for YOU
Shadan has been a wonderful support system for me
I have loved every session with Shadan. She understands my issues and she's extremely knowledgeable. I feel very comfortable with her and she's made my first ever therapy/counseling sessions an amazing experience.
She was very helpful and she gave me some stuff to do so we can work threw under lying problems not just what I am doing but why I am doing it.
Shadan lent her ear to me and was able to pin point a lot of the current issues i am currently experiencing. Her way and cadence in speaking is relaxing. She provided me with ways to immediately cope and solve my issues.
It has only been one session so far but I am looking forward to working with her more and more as this counselling progresses.
Shadan in just a short period of time has a great grasp on the situation that we are discussing. Makes the process even easier. Thank you!
Shadan listens to my concerns and offers good advice. I have learned coping strategies and appreciate our sessions.
