Seema Shah, P.h.D
My role as your therapist is to carefully guide you to a resolution of the issues you present in therapy. I believe in a supportive solution-focused modality of therapy that will allow you to empower yourself to find a new and different way to handle the challenges you face. I provide a confidential and safe environment where you are able to discuss and work on issues pertaining to your presenting problem.
Though I have experience in working with a wide range of psychological problems, I have a special interest in working with patients dealing with anxiety and mood disorders including but not limited to panic disorder, OCD, postpartum depression, anger management, and self-esteem.
Given my Asian Indian-American nationality, my experience in understanding diversity and providing multicultural counseling to various ethnic clients, I am able to offer a special sensitivity to those patients with issues pertaining to their specific cultural values.
