Welcome and thank you for taking the time to view my profile. My name is Faith and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Indiana. I have been in the social services field for over 10 years. I have much experience working with anxiety, depression, trauma, stress management, anger management, and relationship stressors. Anyone who knows me would describe me as highly empathic, compassionate, caring and committed to making a difference in the lives of others. I have experience in both roles of therapy, as therapist and client. I understand the difficulty in seeking help, being vulnerable and facing personal struggles. I value and respect the lives of each of my clients and admire the strength and resiliency that I am privileged to see in my work every day. In our work together, I will help you connect to these strengths within you and work collaboratively to help overcome the struggles that you face. I believe that each of us has a greater purpose in this life and counseling is one of many tools to help achieve our highest potential. My counseling approach is eclectic, meaning that I draw from a combination of counseling theory and techniques. Each of us is unique in our thoughts, feelings and worldview; therefore, I believe therapy should not be a one-size-fits-all approach. I am continuously researching treatments and perspectives from professionals in the counseling field, and utilize strategies from a holistic perspective, integrating mind, body and spirit for optimum health. If you feel ready to take the next step to a more fulfilling life, I would love to accompany you along that journey!

Hi! I'm going to tell you a little bit about my background as I know choosing a counselor can be daunting. I am a licensed mental health counselor. I have an undergraduate degree in Psychology from Indiana University and a Master Degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of Louisville. I have served over the years an ethnically and culturally diverse population. I work with all ages in private practice regarding many different concerns anything from: severe mental illness, complex trauma, PTSD, struggling with life changes or direction, family related distress, Parenting and developmental concerns, and couples counseling to name a few. Over the past 5 years I have worked with students (K-12) in a school setting as well, tackling again many different concerns such as: ADHD, Autism, mood disorders, family concerns, bullying, LGBTQ+, depression, anxiety, and more. I practice trauma informed care in everything I do, as my background is in trauma treatment specifically. I am comfortable working with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders. I approach each and every client with dignity and respect. I am easy to talk to always with the goal to create a safe and non-judging environment. I want to meet clients where they are at presently and work at a pace that is comfortable for them towards their desired conclusion or goal(s). I know that trusting a stranger with your biggest struggles is a difficult thing to do. I firmly believe that a good relationship (therapeutic alliance) between the counselor and client is essential for a successful outcome. I work very hard to respect these truths and provide the help that is needed in a very authentic and genuine way.

Hey there! I'm Dr. Naz, and I offer individual therapy and wellness coaching. You'll see my degrees and licensure, but I highlight today my unique ability to connect with clients as one of the few men of color in this industry, especially since I am a neurodivergent myself. Growing up in Flint and Saginaw, Michigan, I don't rely on my education and doctorate to help my clients. I use my life experiences and deep empathy to understand what you bring to the table in therapy truly. People come to therapy for various reasons: some are looking for support, some for solutions, some for a cheerleader, and some need someone to push them. I have a unique ability to do all those things and ensure you always smile and laugh during our sessions ????. My mission in life is to help others better their lives. My specialties are working with folks of color, student-athletes, and those who are neurodivergent. For anyone who is neurodivergent or autistic reading this, you've finally found someone who not only specializes in but also deeply understands your unique perspective. Whether you're looking for explanations for your behavior, ways you interpret the world, or trying to figure out job functioning and ADHD, I'll do my best to help you with interpersonal skills, relationships, and more. I'm genuinely excited and honored to work with each of my clients and help them reach their goals in life. This isn't just my job, as all my clients will tell you—this is my passion. This is my life. I'm different from any therapist you've ever had, and together, we'll be one of the best teams. I'll be there for you through life's challenges, the ups, the downs, the hardships, the sadness, the happiest moments, the joys, and the promotions ????. If you're reading this and choose to work with me, I'm excited to see where we can go together. We'll support and empower you to be the best version of yourself, even if that best version is just not hating yourself anymore. Welcome to the Different Spectrums family! If you're curious about my style and humor, you're welcome to listen to our podcast, which has over forty thousand followers. I enjoy pickup basketball, weightlifting, and yoga outside the therapy room. I'm currently adding golf and fishing to my repertoire. I admit to a penchant for reading half-bought books and comics. To unwind, you'll catch me enjoying Netflix, Disney+, and Hulu comedies. ???????????????????? #TherapistExtraordinaire #AutisticAndProud

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Butler therapist?

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family in Butler?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Butler therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

Butler therapists in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of Butler therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Butler counselor?

Before seeing your Butler therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Butler.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice from a therapist. A Butler licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy with a Butler counselor can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health therapist has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Butler, Indiana can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions during telehealth appointments?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
