I love working with parents and those preparing to enter that life stage. I offer support with pregnancy loss, perinatal support, postpartum mood disorders. Also, I support parents as they continue to navigate life through all the later stages of parenthood. Most parents are overstretched and under supported. We can feel we lose connection with parts of ourselves and others in the transition to parenthood. It also can bring out hard to face parts of us we did not know where there. I'm here to help you integrate and understand all the thoughts, fears, and behaviors that you may seek to change.

Hello! My name is Mushiyrah. I have experience working with clients struggling with anxiety, depression, and self-esteem challenges, as well as other issues. Teaching coping skills and helping clients utilize their strengths is important to me. It allows individuals to feel empowered and competent. The goal is not to rely on me but to learn to trust themselves and utilize new skills to manage their symptoms. It is also very important to me to give space for people of color to feel comfortable exploring issues of race.

People come to treatment for a variety of reasons.I view each person as unique and strive to assist individuals to overcome challenges and meet the goals that are important in their lives. As we work to let go of behaviors, thoughts and feelings that are not useful in the present, new healthier patterns can emerge and be adopted. Treatment is always focused on achieving a greater sense of comfort and satisfaction, psychologically, emotionally physically and spiritually.

To help you figure out what's not working, and new ways to approach old problems. Like how to avoid having the same fight over and over with a loved one.

I believe in the healing power of psychotherapy. I understand that the process might be a long one. If I take on a client, I am in it for the entire journey. Whether you facing questions about your relationship or your life path, psychotherapy can lead you towards authentic answers. I am able to use myself, along with the therapeutic relationship to allow you to find ways to live more fully. I am comfortable working to help you access the parts of yourself that feel both scary and powerful. I find that I am particularly skilled at working at the intersection of neurodivergence and queerness.

Do you find yourself struggling with interpersonal relationships, effective communication, or emotional regulation? Have you experienced traumatic or stressful events that have left you feeling overwhelmed, disconnected, or unable to move forward in your life? Do you find yourself coping in unhealthy ways such as codependent behaviors, self-harm, substance use or isolation?

Substance Use Therapists

How do substance and drug recovery or rehabilitation programs work?

In inpatient programs, individuals live in a facility with other clients in recovery; in outpatient programs, individuals reside at home. These facilities are staffed with healthcare professionals including physicians, nurses, psychologists, counselors, and psychotherapists. Staff often also includes people who have recovered themselves, serving as mentors and guides. These programs may use abstinence, harm reduction, detoxification, psychotherapy, and other methods.

How do 12-step programs combined with psychotherapy work?

Members of 12-step programs help each other reach abstinence and work to maintain it. These programs promote complete change in the individual’s emotional, mental, physical, and even spiritual perspectives. Some programs require that new members attend 90 meetings in 90 days. Many people do attend these programs in conjunction with their work in psychotherapy; the combination of therapy along with 12-step can be extremely effective.

How does harm reduction combined with psychotherapy work?

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, harm reduction prevents death, injury, disease, overdose, and substance misuse. People who choose harm reduction for substance use reduce the amount of drugs they consume. It is not abstinence-based like a 12-step program, but combining harm reduction with psychotherapy proves to be effective for many people.

Are there specific medications for substance and drug use?

There are medications approved to treat substance use disorder—such as buprenorphine, methadone, naltrexone, and acamprosate. These medications do help people cope with substance use as well as avoid the problem of relapse. Naltrexone can help reduce cravings, methadone is an opioid medication used to treat severe pain, and acamprosate may help ease symptoms like poor sleep and anxious feelings.
