My Approach to Helping

Hi, my name is Afifa, and I am an LCSW in NY and a LICSW in MA. I specialize in helping individuals through life's challenges. I have a passion for helping people feel empowered to make changes in their lives, and I am dedicated to providing evidence-based treatment tailored to each individual. My client-centered approach focuses on the present with an eye toward the future. If you are looking for someone to help guide you through your journey, please feel free to reach out. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you on your path toward true healing. Thank you.

My approach to therapy is integrative and concentrates on assisting individuals to explore and challenge habits/thoughts/patterns which impact emotions, behaviors, relationships, sleep, work, energy, motivation, and goals. Work through the environmental, psychological, behavioral, interpersonal, and situational contributors to wellness. Assist with Identifying negative or distorted thinking patterns that often lead to feelings of hopelessness and helplessness. Provide psycho-education on specific life problems that may increase depression and help patients understand how to solve or improve on those problems.
