Dinha Farooqui, LPC, MA

Psychotherapist

Professional statement

As a professional counselor, I have a fascination with guiding my clients through various life narratives to help them create a life that cultivates empowerment, true happiness and compassion for oneself. My approach is holistic combining cognitive behavioral therapy and person-centered therapy. My philosophy helps clients develop a stronger and more positive self-concept, thus helping them achieve their truest desires. I enjoy working with children, adolescents, and adults with various issues including depression, anxiety, coping skills and building positive self-esteem. I am a strong advocate for personal growth and wholeness to encourage a confident and balanced life. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree at Loyola University Chicago in Psychology and my Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Argosy University.

Really enjoyed her, and we connected. I like her approach as it seems to be engaging vs. just having someone to listen to.

One thing they should note for this clinic is to arrive 30 min before your first appt. The paperwork was 30+ pages to fill out and definitely cut into my session time. I arrived 10-15 min early and it still cutinto my appt time (Appt was at 6pm and didn't get down to the room until past 6:20)

Dinha is very engaged throughout our sessions, great listener and demonstrates a lot of empathy. What I especially like is that she is constantly suggesting small, actionable methods for me to work on and improve. She also has a really goodread of my motivations and makes great use of that for our sessions. I will definitely keep up our relationship and see her consistently.
