You did it! You are here. Now take a deep breath. Great, now let's talk. Let me guess, you are here because you are hoping to get to a healthier you and healthier thoughts but, you are not sure how. You feel stuck. Maybe you are here for your child in hopes that you will find someone who can help them feel better and teach them skills so they can continue on in a positive way at school, home, and with friends. Maybe you are a clinician seeking supervision services. Whatever it is, I am glad that you are here and I look forward to hearing all about your why and supporting you.

My name is Najlah. I am not sure what you are in need of right now. The one thing that I do know, is that you are here for a reason. Looks like we have the same common goal. That is, Change. Things are hard right now. You're confused, you want clarity on where you are and how you got there. The advice from friends and family is no longer enough. Come chat with me, a licensed mental health counselor. Allow me to provide a safe space where you can utilize the proper skills to lead you into a more comfortable place in life. A place where happiness has new meaning. Where you can learn how to challenge your negative thoughts.

As a service provider for over 20 years, while having the pleasure of working with diverse populations, I have learned many valuable lessons are learned. As a service provider, more than the intent of creating positive change in the lives of those served may be needed. As a QTBIPOC service recipient and clinician, I understand the importance of having access to safe and affirming service spaces. Services that actively understand the power behind intersectionality. If services are inequitable for some, they fail all of us. Together we are strong.

In life we all need hope, validation, just to know that today, "this too shall pass." I strive to connect with individuals with honesty, warmth, and empathy. When one makes that decision to seek emotional guidance, I understand the vulnerability and the bravery of that moment. While allowing one to take the time they need to reach their desires of the heart and/or identify what one desires through a space of compassion and mindfulness.

Do you struggle to feel satisfied in your personal or professional life? If so, you're certainly not alone. In striving for personal and professional success, it’s easy to become disconnected from yourself and the relationships that matter most. As pressure and stress build, you may find yourself feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, or struggling to remain present. I enjoy helping students and working professionals face the demands of high-pressure environments without losing connection to themselves or the people they care about most.

Therapy should be a space to explore, understand and transcend. As a therapist of color, I value creating a safe space where clients can be their full authentic self. For the last 8 years, I have done community mental health work in the greater Boston area with late teens, adults, elderly, and the LBGTQ+ community. I work with individuals experiencing anxiety and depression to unpack trauma, build self-esteem and a sense of self-worth, and identify/accomplish life goals.

When will you realize you are worthy of being a priority? You always put others first and you wear that as a badge of honor. You believe that it is your job to always be available to others, always be willing and barely having your needs met. You are the “responsible” one so everyone in your life always counts on you. You have always been the go-to person for your family and friends. You are used to being the “strong” friend or are perceived as having it all together. If we are being honest that makes you feel good about yourself. Other’s needing you have made you feel wanted and seen. But what happens when that stops,

We are a multiethnic and multiracial group practice that centralizes care for BIPoC and LGBTQIA+ communities. Clients who come to us are working though life challenges related to their identities. They are often in a process of self-exploration, working to make sense of their place and identity in the world where they are made to feel like "the other" and have been marginalized, traumatized, and blatantly microaggressed. We recognize the importance of finding providers who get it, from a shared and lived experience. Here, our aim is connect communities of color and queer communities with providers of color and queer providers.
