A healthy mind is something that I believe is essential to overall health and I strive to do my best to help others improve in this area. Meeting clients where they are and helping them work through their ambivalence is something that I feel is essential to the therapeutic relationship. I specialize in helping women navigate life's transitions, set boundaries, and improve their self-confidence. I have years of experience working with adult populations to help them gain tools to better manage their lives. In my sessions I promote behavioral transformation by encouraging a positive outlook and the adoption of new attitudes and reactions. In the end, making small changes to self-defeating behavior and coping with feelings of sadness, fear, and pain can bring life-altering results. In my free time I enjoy working jigsaw and Sudoku puzzles, traveling, spending time with family, and watching the HGTV network. I look forward to helping you on this journey of becoming the best version of you!

38 years of experience

Hi, I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the mental health field for the last 38 years. The first part of my career was in in Virginia working as an emergency mental health therapist in a community mental health clinic. I moved to North Carolina 30 years ago. For 16 years I worked as a mental health therapist in an inpatient psychiatric hospital. Then I went to work for the military as a mental health therapist working with the Marines and Navy servicemembers for the last 14 years. I also had a part time private practice for 23 years where I primarily worked with couples who were working on their relationship. I did not have much opportunity in my full time job to work with couples which is my passion. I was able to meet with couples in the evening to help them resolve their conflicts and develop positive coping skills as a couple. I am semi-retired and living in Florida now. I love being close to family and the beach. I love working with people to help them achieve their goals. My style is to help you develop the goals you want to change and give you the tools to achieve that goal. It is my privilege and honor to help those who are seeking help for themselves. I see my self as an integrative therapist who utilizes many tools to help my clients. I check my messages several times a day seven days a week and will get back to you within 24 hours or less.

Hello, I am Fauzia, Life challenges can be overwhelming and stressful, asking for help may not be easy but necessary if one is to overcome them. We all have experienced at some point in our lives, painful moments, found ourselves alone, perhaps no one can understand or maybe fear of being judged. It takes courage and resiliency to take the first step towards healing wounds. I understand reaching out for help is a difficult process but necessary if one is to experience joy, happiness, contentment, peace and love, one must become aware of the workings of Body Form versus the Self. Identification with one’s narratives, constructs and concepts will lead to more suffering because there is no end to thoughts and more thoughts, so on and so forth. I started my journey into the field of mental health and substance abuse in 1985. Through self-observation and mindfulness, I got to know Me, not the conditioned Me but the unconditioned Me; I found Eckhart Tolle and Kim Eng’ s teachings and mindfulness meditations most helpful in my transformation. When I am working with clients what I have found most helpful is; listening, respecting, empathizing and connecting which means I must be present to receive and to teach ways you can heal and transform, become aware of your true nature and who you truly are, free yourself from the narratives, constructs, concepts and labelling. I am big on teaching the importance of Mindfulness Meditations; through your breathing practice, bringing your attention to each breath as it travels inside your body, you will discover your self that lives within the body form and observe your thoughts, the one that is observing is You!!! Thoughts are just thoughts. The essence of you is much vast and greater than your thoughts. I am passionate about my work with my clients, it brings me so much joy and happiness when clients are able to realize there are two not one; The body form and You the consciousness. I have been practicing since 1985, I have been providing therapy to children, adolescents, adults and geriatric population for over three decades, my specialty areas are Self Care tool box, depression, Post-Traumatic stress disorder, Complex Trauma,,Anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, ADHD, codependency, addiction and many other emotional issues that impact one's daily life. Once I complete thorough evaluation, I provide recommendations based on areas you identified during the evaluation that need to be addressed in therapy. I use various interventions to help my client get the best results, each individual is different therefore not one approach works for all, I have extensive experience and training in the following interventions; CBT, coping skills, mindfulness, behavior management plans, ABC's of emotions, insight and self reflection among many others that are helpful. to develop confidence and build self-esteem, healthy coping skills, practice Self-Care. Please check out my websiteat Also please check out my YouTube Channel at Fauzia F Shah MSW, LCSW. I am accepting video and audio session . Thank you. Fauzia F Shah MSW, LCSW

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Roxobel.

Each type of therapy can offer various benefits and address or treat different disorders. If you're still unsure or are new to counseling in Roxobel, feel free to contact the provider via email to find out which methods they practice.

It is also important to understand that mental health professionals in the United States are accredited to provide care, helping individuals and couples, with a variety of licenses. These include licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW), and clinical psychologist or doctor of psychology (PsyD). Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

Mental health professionals working through their own in- person therapy practice in Roxobel or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, or change in negative thinking patterns. They may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain.

  • CBT
  • DBT
  • Substance use therapy
  • Couples therapy

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the Roxobel area can be found below:

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

The average price of an in-person therapy session in the US is $100 to $200 per hour. These prices may be higher in Roxobel due to a higher cost of living. The price also depends on the type of provider you are looking for. See the following average prices for various mental health providers without insurance:

  • Counseling with a psychiatrist: $150-$500
  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300
  • Therapy with a psychologist: $100

While many psychologists in Roxobel may not take health insurance, some in the state of North Carolina may work on a sliding scale, meaning they'll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session. With BetterHelp or clinicians throughout the state of North Carolina you can expect significantly more affordable options, with sessions ranging from $65 to $100 per week (billed every four weeks).

How is a licensed therapist on this online therapy platform verified?

Therapists in Roxobel, North Carolina working on BetterHelp are licensed, trained, experienced, and accredited as a doctor of psychology (PhD / PsyD), licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW / LICSW), or licensed professional counselors (LPC). All of these psychology clinicians have a Masters Degree or a Doctorate Degree in their field of psychology sciences, and follow the APA Code of Ethics. They have been qualified and certified by their state's professional board after successfully completing the necessary education, exams, training and practice with a patient, and extensive experience in a healthcare clinic or treatment centers, in order to become a mental health provider. While their lived experience, expertise, careers, and background vary, they all possess at least 3 years and 1,000 hours of hands-on experience with adult and sometimes teen patients, and have the necessary therapist credentials to provide a safe space for long lasting emotional healing in therapy. 

Please note BetterHelp does not offer or provide care from psychiatrists to prescribe a drug as treatment, or perform psychological assessments.

How does working with a counselor in BetterHelp online therapy sessions work?

BetterHelp clinicians treat clients online across the United States (individuals and couples) through life transitions, inner child exploration, long term depression or anxiety, and more. An online mental health professional, including the therapists in Roxobel above, can work with young adults, children, adolescents, and adults virtually as an accredited licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) or licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT). You do not have to commute to a an office as a psychotherapy client.

Through BetterHelp therapy, you can partake in video, phone, or live chat therapy sessions with your licensed therapist. You can work through various symptoms, use the in app journaling feature, and receive worksheets. You'll also find support groups or group therapy lead by a therapist in Roxobel helping individuals on topics including managing life transitions, symptoms affecting sexual health, behavioral health, coping skills for anxiety or depression, trauma, stress, marriage counseling, and more. 

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

BetterHelp's verified Roxobel therapists specialize and have clinical experience in a wide range of mental health issues and modalities, helping clients to feel better and improve their lives every day. See below for examples.

Specialties on BetterHelp include:

You may also be struggling with relationship problems that could be addressed in couples therapy or with a sex therapist. In that case, you may choose to work with one of BetterHelp's experienced cognitive-behavioral therapists or licensed marriage family therapists (LMFT) who work with clients in relationships. You can also try a Roxobel therapy provider through BetterHelp's sister platform, ReGain, which is dedicated to couples and spouses worldwide. 

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a 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.

A psychologist 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 therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

Many people have sensitive topics that they may feel ashamed to discuss with their friends or partner. A Roxobel therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support. There are also many types of therapy, such as art therapy, where you may find you can express yourself through creativity instead of words.

With a lot of people in NC, providers may be booked out with clients. Through the list of profiles above and others within BetterHelp's team, you may be able to find a psychologist within 24 to 48 hours. If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 27872 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

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

Before seeing your 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. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist 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. A Roxobel 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 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.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy 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 professional 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 Roxobel, North Carolina 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.

Roxobel has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey. If you opt into online therapy, you might also be able to meet with providers all over the United States and change therapists easily at any time. 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?

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.
