About

Life is a maze with many twists and turns. Your choices and actions will determine the next steps in life depending on which path you decide to take. In order to find a deeper meaning to understand who you are, what you want or how to build healthy relationships, it is important to have a therapist that is empathetic and understanding. A therapist who will meet you at your starting point and guide you towards fulfilling your journey. We can be our biggest critic but understanding your core values, needs, wants, and goals will help bring out the best version of YOU!
Speaking to a therapist allows you to gain insight about how your thoughts and emotions affect your behavior in ways that you may not have understood before. Some of my specialties are treating anxiety, relationship issues, trauma, and racial/cultural identity issues.
My main approaches are Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy although I derive from other modalities based on your needs and goals in therapy. I have also completed my level 1 training in EMDR. I challenge clients to explore the root cause of their symptoms, gaining new awareness into their emotional and relationship patterns.

Humaira Naushad's Groups

Intergenerational Trauma group South Asian Muslims

Growing up in NY and identifying as a Sri Lankan/American Muslim has helped me to understand how to balance two different cultures. As a therapist and with my background, knowledge and experience has allowed me to help other individuals cope and overcome issues with trauma, mental health, family dynamics, etc. This group will build awareness and understanding about intergenerational trauma as well as help clients develop coping skills, break away from unhealthy thinking and behavior patterns, and learn new ways to heal from their past trauma.
