It can be very challenging to see things clearly in life. I help individuals re-adjust their way of looking at themselves, their relationships, and the world. Through psycho-dynamic exploration, I come alongside in the discovery of what is possible, as it is my belief that the most crucial part of therapy is the relationship that builds between patient and therapist. It is often easier to shine a light into uncertain areas of one's heart and mind when someone else is holding the flashlight.

Therapy can be one of the bravest and most life-changing experiences you can engage in. It's a personal journey of self-awareness and healing. A key aspect of that process is finding the appropriate therapist to support you on that journey. The right fit is important. My belief is that each person has within them the wisdom to know how to heal. My job as therapist is to help people connect with that inner wisdom and utilize the person's strengths to address the challenges they are currently facing.

Whether you are coming to therapy because you are battling addiction, have relationship issues, unresolved trauma, or are striving for more balance in your life, I am here to help. Making an appointment with a therapist takes courage and is the first step toward personal growth and change. Some people come to therapy to improve their communication skills while others come to explore their unresolved pain that may show up in various symptoms such as, depression, anxiety, or substance abuse. If the underlying pain is not dealt with, life can seem difficult and maybe even unbearable. There is no need to suffer. There is hope.

I see therapy as a powerful process because of the collaborative relationship between the therapist and the client. When a person chooses to begin the therapeutic process, they enter into a safe space in which they can begin to free themselves from that which has become constricted or blocked in their life. In this process, I offer companionship, interest, support, and alliance. Your life narrative becomes our focus, with sustained curiosity, attention and empathy. As a client, you then can become more curious, attentive, and empathic towards yourself.

Karima Shamma is not currently taking new clients. Life satisfaction hinges on the quality of past & current relationships because we grow in relationship with others. This is what therapy is all about. I work with adults, adolescents, college and transitional-aged to unearth the roots of inner distress, expand awareness, curiosity, energy and empowerment. Life is not rigid, it flexibly ebbs & flows. Growth, while scary demands a surrender of outdated beliefs and behaviors, leaving a familiar comfort zone. But guess what? You will not be alone.

No matter how rewarding, being a parent can be extremely difficult. And amidst a global pandemic, support may be limited and anxieties high. Even in "normal" times, we can struggle to balance our needs with those of our children, to figure out how to discipline in a loving and effective way, and to help our kids develop and thrive. Through exploring one’s own childhood and relationships, a parent can better understand challenges surfacing around parenting, and achieve greater clarity and ownership in parenting decisions. My therapeutic approach helps parents work through challenges mindfully, with love and with confidence.
