I use Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Internal Family Systems in my treatment approach.
My name is Shamim Sufi, a name that points to my roots in multiple cultures. Raised in India, educated in Britain (Warwick University) and the United States (Northwestern University's Family Institute), I specialize in treatment of families across cultures. As a licensed clinical social worker, I work in collaboration with my clients to maximize individual and family functioning. I create a safe, caring and non-judgmental environment for immigrant families facing intergenerational problems, marital discord, emotional and psychological problems, arising from adaptation to a foreign culture. I have considerable experience in community mental health and child welfare, helping people with complex multiple issues.

My clients are every day people trying to take care of their families, careers, health, homes, and themselves during one of the most challenging times we have been facing. They want guidance to see their through difficult situations. They want change and hope. They need someone to listen without judgment and guide them towards relief. Whether that be relief from self-doubt, fear, dread, lack of motivation, or destructive behavior. They want better relationships or health, more successful careers and academic performance. At the end of the day they want help being the best version of themselves and reach their fullest potential.

We will get to the root of the problem so you can feel better using proven techniques such as EMDR, Internal Family Systems ( IFS ) and expressive art therapy.
Aren't you tired of being told to "relax", "stop overthinking", "you are too sensitive" and "you worry too much"? People tell you this as if you don't want to relax, stop overthinking, let things get you upset and worry! If you could, you would! Hearing this from friends and family members doesn't help. In fact, it can make you feel even worse. You have tried to stop on your own but your mind continues to fill up with things that make you stressed out and you have a hard time turning it off. You are not alone! I get it and can completely relate! That is why I love helping people find relief.

I have advanced training/experience treating dissociative disorders/DID using Ego State/ IFS and EMDR therapies.
We all have the capacity to reach our fullest potential. Yet all too often we find ourselves stuck in negative patterns of thinking and acting, unable to see other possibilities. Therapy allows us to make meaning of our difficult life experiences and open up to new ways of thinking, feeling, and being. I strive to provide a safe and supportive environment where clients can learn to identify and express their emotions effectively, develop healthy ways of coping with difficult emotions, improve the quality of their relationships, and increase their self-esteem and sense of self-worth.

While not everyone needs therapy, I believe that almost everyone can benefit from it.

My areas of specialty include treating anxiety, depression, eating disorders, PTSD, and life transitions.

I use gentle but powerful methods like IFS to lift the crushing burdens of an over-scheduled life.
You are a highly capable person with a mountain of responsibilities. People depend on you, and you never fail to deliver. But there is a hidden cost to living this way, and it's starting to add up. You're burned out, depressed, and wondering "Why do I work so hard? Who am I without my work? My family duties?” Of course your mind is going to sad and dark places. Your personal priorities are at the bottom of a never-ending list of to-do’s. Oddly enough, when you think about making a change for the better - something always gets in the way. Self-doubt, another task, someone else’s problem, or an urgent deadline.

With the foundation of relationships and safety, using relational neuroscience as a foundation, I will guide you towards on your unique healing journey! I use several mind-body-spirit techniques like EMDR, EFT (tapping), SSP, IFS , and more.
Family life can be where we feel loved and supported, or we feel confusion, overwhelm, and grief. Family life is already complicated, especially when it is impacted by trauma, neurodiveristy, or adoption and foster care, or some combination of all three. Subsequently, you can feel misunderstood, alone, and "othered" by friends and family. And I see you! I provide a safe and compassionate environment through the lens of relational neuroscience, specializing in the care for adults and parents impacted by trauma, neurodiversity, adoption, and foster care.

We are able to utilize tools like Psychodynamic, Exposure Therapy, IFS , CBT, Play Therapy, and many more ways to serve our client's.
Just as we exist within an external system; family, work environments, neighborhoods, school community, we have a personal internal system within each of us. These two systems influence each other throughout every day of our lives. Just as our minds need to understand our external systems like the rules at our office or school, we need to understand the interaction of the parts within ourselves. This may be a difficult concept to wrap your mind around because we live in a world with such external rules. What would it be like if we lived by the knowledge of the internal and external systems ?

If you are looking for a traditional therapist - I am not for you. I get it; you've gone to therapy before and did not get the results you were hoping to achieve. The truth is, finding a good therapist is not easy. You want someone who can help you create the changes you have not been able to do independently. You've read self-help books, watched numerous YouTube videos, listened to dozens of podcasts, even attended retreats/seminars to level up, but the changes were not long-lasting. That is where I can help.

As a clinician, I believe experiences are stored within our bodies, and are not always readily accessible to us for various reasons. Together we will explore those experiences in a safe space while learning ways to cope life's stressors. I use an integrative approach to support my clients in achieving a higher sense of self. My passion areas are working with children, adolescents, and young adults. I have several years of working in higher levels of care ranging from inpatient, residential, and IOP/PHP prior to entering private practice.

My ideal client is an individual looking to work through their depression, anxiety, or relationship issues, or a couple seeking to find effective ways to communicate with each other to stop getting in the same negative and exhausting upsets. I think many people who see me have been individuals who need someone to help them understand and work with their place in life and in their relationships. I tend to work mostly with men who feel more comfortable with another male to make sense of the difficult area of emotions and how to communicate them well.
