In my work with clients I prefer to maintain a holistic focus on the individual. No matter what you are struggling with I find it hard to imagine that there is only one way of looking at it to understand the problem. My goal in therapy is to have my clients walk away from session with new insights and goals that allow them to orient towards creating change. Knowing what it is that you want out of life can be incredibly powerful, and therapy can be a great opportunity for growth.

In today's fast-paced society, it is hard to feel heard. Life can be tough and struggles are challenging to overcome alone. My top priority is to provide you with a safe space to find hope and relief. I believe clients play an expert role in their life. My job is to listen and make observations that will help you gain perspective. I value the combined effort between client and counselor. Together we will explore how you see the world and construct a treatment plan based on your specific goals. My approaches to counseling include cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), person-centered and solution focused therapy.

Awareness around the importance of mental health has come a long way in the last few decades. However, many people still maintain a taboo around its acceptance as a vital factor in an individual’s quality of life. I want to change that. Moving from Pakistan to the United States for my undergraduate studies has provided me with a deep understanding of working with people from diverse backgrounds, and a profound appreciation of all the cultures that make up this country. I am therefore, passionate about providing a validating space for clients from all gender, sexual, and cultural identities.

We are not what happened to us, we are not a diagnosis, but we are humans who are capable of so many great things and to live a life that we love. I went into this field not to tell people how to fix their lives (which I won’t) but how to create their own change with guidance and exploration. We are in this together and you are not alone.

It's no secret that we live in a world where finding a safe space, paired with a listening, nonjudgmental ear can be impossible to come by. Couple this absence of safety with trauma, anxiety, depression, grief and relationship challenges that impact us all, and we are left with an inability to find life satisfaction.

FAQs - About Therapy and Counseling

How can I find a therapist in 76210?

Search for nearby therapists or counselors by inputting your city, town, or suburb; or zip code; or a provider’s name into the search bar. From there, you can filter providers by the issues they treat, cost, insurance, gender, and other factors to find providers who are well-suited to your needs. To navigate between locations within the same country, enter a new city or zip code into the search bar.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors.

Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the US, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the United States could cost between $100 and $200 or more. If you have insurance, the expense of mental health care is typically lower, but it varies based on your insurance plan details and whether you choose an in-network or out-of-network mental healthcare provider.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship. Therapists in the United States are bound by the regulations set out by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), which aims to protect sensitive health information. With very few exceptions, a therapist will only discuss their client with others when the client has given their written permission. The instances in which a therapist would be required to disclose personal information are: if a client poses a danger to themselves or others, if the therapist suspects the abuse of a child or an elderly or otherwise dependent adult, or if they are legally forced to by court order. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed with a client before their first session.
