Hello! I am Fariha Newaz (Fah-ree-ha, she/her/hers)
I am a therapist that works with teens and adults. Come with me on this topsy-turvy adventure of therapy that explores shame, boundaries (what are those?!), and how your emotions impact every aspect of your life. Let’s look at patterns, challenge belief systems, learn about how our intergenerational trauma shapes us, and create new narratives. I live for plot twists, and the latest news in your life. We start where you are and only by getting to know the most real version of you can we navigate the therapy world. And we do it together. I’m also here to celebrate your wins, big and small! I am a CIS gendered, first generation, South Asian woman.
I love working with:
- Teens with anxiety and depression and substance use
- Young adults struggling with life’s transitions
- Adults just trying to get through the day
- New mom’s adjusting to being a mom
- Children of Immigrants/ first generation
- South Asian identifying clients
Some of my approaches include:
HOW I HELP
The relationship between us is going to be the strongest tool we have. I believe that you have the power and strength to grow and change from within. I provide a safe, nonjudgmental space where you can explore your fears and worries. I trust that our relationship will help you stay accountable to your own goals. Your most authentic self is what I ask of you and I know it can take some time to get there, that’s okay. I am invested in you and as you commit to your own growth, you will learn tools to overcome obstacles. The goal isn’t that hard things won’t happen, but that when they do, you have the skills to work through them. You are not defined by what brings you into counseling and together we can help you be the best you.
