Fatima Wasim, PhD NCC LPC​

ENAYA COUNSELING & CONSULTING LLC

Personally and professionally, I strive to create a safe, warm, and inviting place for clients where they can be who they are and feel empowered to set and achieve their goals. Many times in our lives, we know what we need to do to help ourselves but have a hard time accessing the internal wisdom which gets quieted by the daily stressors, or situational distress, unsupportive/toxic environments or significant negative events in life.

My approach is to empower my clients to better understand themselves, their problems, and to have the skills to make healthier and more productive life decisions. This is achieved through creating greater self-awareness of underlying motivations and barriers that maintain unhealthy behaviors and thought patterns. I believe issues need to be addressed at the root for change to be sustainable over time.

Bhavana Goel

Pine River Psychotherapy and Associates

On our journey of life, sometimes we reach a point where it seems as if, we have hit the end of the road. Thoughts like, "I feel stuck", “Life is so meaningless” or “Will my relationships ever improve?”, can leave us feeling overwhelmed and drained. A deep sense of sadness, anger and frustration can get in way of our everyday functioning.
