Shadia Ibrahim


About Me

My name is Shadia Ibrahim and I am a licensed mental health counselor licensed in the state of Indiana. I have been practicing since 2010 and I work with teenagers and young adults (14-21) , women’s issues, PTSD, depression, anxiety and eating disorders.

I use a person-centered approach when in a therapeutic relationship with my clients. I make consistent efforts to meet each client "where they are" and to serve as a catalyst to each individual who is progressing through their unique process of self-discovery and self-identification.
In my work with clients, I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Group therapy and Solution-Focused Therapy. I also use Narrative, and Strategic approaches.

I feel honored to be a part of someone’s personal experiences, as our problems and feelings are unique and yet we are all one and together. I like to approach my sessions – as a team, addressing challenges together to become free from judgment, criticism, and pain; to change our negative perceptions that do not serve us well; and to live a joyful and peaceful life. I always refer myself as a passenger on your unique journey and my goal is to help you reach your destination and then you can drop me off and I will get a ride with the next person who seeks my help.

For my professional growth, I continuously read related literature, keep myself up to date with the ethical and legal guidelines in the field, and the latest research, and attend conferences and trainings.

I believe in creating a space where we can have difficult conversations, work on resolving issues and collaborate on treatment plans that are tailored to your personal needs and experiences. It takes a lot of courage and motivation to reach out for additional support. I am here for you and thank you for trusting me with your utmost personal dilemmas.

She’s not pushy but is on my time and seems to ask the right questions when we talk
