Qualifications and Experience
The decision to seek individual therapy can be an uncomfortable one for many. As a clinician, I deeply respect my clients for the strength and resilience that it takes to seek the help of a professional. Engagement in therapy is a journey, a process- one that I would like to embark on with you. As a client, it is important for you to know that you are not alone. The therapeutic process is a unique and collaborative one in which you are the expert of your experience. I will help equip you with tools to enhance your experience, while working toward your goals. I believe this is achieved through a strong client/therapist relationship, evidenced based interventions and appreciation for diversity. I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy techniques while working from a Person-Centered lens. As a clinician, it is important for me to see each person as an individual, using a compassionate and nonjudgmental approach. I am also a strong proponent that one size does not fit all. Thus, treatment planning is a joint effort in which you and I work together to develop and cater treatment specific to you and your needs. You have taken the first difficult step in searching for a helping professional in hopes of meeting your overall goals. Together you and I will travel your journey to conquer your challenges toward living your best experience

Hanifa has a wonderful bedside manner and I enjoyed my time in her cozy office. Just starting treatment for an anxiety disorder. Her advice has been helpful so far.
She’s amazing! Patient, thorough, and willing to listen! Definitely recommend seeing her!!
Hanifa is a wonderful, sensitive and insightful therapist. My husband and I have been seeing her for couples therapy, and we both agree that we are very lucky to have found her. I can’t recommend her enough.
Hanifa is an extremely pleasant therapist. She listens very well and makes it clear what the goal of each session is while giving you time to share your thoughts. I've visited other therapists before and none of them made me feel as comfortable as Hanifa.
