Humaira Naushad, LMHC, Registered Psychotherapist in New York & Ontario

Ethnicity: Sri Lankan

My clients describe me as someone who is warm, empathetic, understanding and insightful. I work with students and working professionals who reside in New York experiencing various mental health issues such as anxiety, trauma, life transitions, relationship issues and racial/cultural identity issues. My sessions are tailored to your needs and goals. As a client you will gain more insight about how thoughts and emotions affect your behavior in ways that you may not have understood before.

My main approaches in therapy are Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy although I derive from other modalities based on your goals and needs. CBT is an evidence-based approach that helps clients understand how their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are interconnected. Psychodynamic therapy aims to uncover emotions, thoughts, beliefs and early life experiences that may affect one’s worldview and relationships with others. I challenge clients to explore the root cause of their symptoms which allows them to gain awareness about their emotions, feelings, behaviors, relationships, etc. I motivate my clients to implement coping skills and techniques that they have learned in session to utilize throughout their life.
