Hafsa Ahmed is an Associate Professional Counselor pursuing full licensure as a Licensed Professional Counselor. She graduated from Mercer University with a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Hafsa is board certified in counseling by the National Board of Certified Counselors.
Embracing a holistic view of human psychology, Hafsa incorporates several modalities into her work with clients including CBT, solution-focused, and mindfulness-based approaches. Hafsa seeks to help individuals identify and use their own unique strengths to experience empowerment, find new ways to cope and build resiliency to stress and anxiety, all while finding meaning in their narratives and regaining control of their lives through self-care; leaving them feeling centered, balanced, and confident.
Hafsa is a compassionate, patient, easy-going, and nonjudgmental therapist with a knack for putting people at ease and is particularly skilled at engaging individuals who may feel doubtful or uncertain about therapy. She believes that the therapeutic relationship is a collaborative process in which the therapist and client work together to bring about positive change, growth, and healing. She works with her clients to support them during difficult times and in accomplishing the change they wish to see in their lives. Hafsa provides clients with tools to create healthy change in their inner dialogue, relationship to one’s body, and to cultivate compassion for oneself and others in their life. She hopes to help others find and implement self-care practices and rituals into their daily life that nourish their mind, body, and spirit.
Hafsa believes while therapy can be a lifelong journey for some, it can also mean inviting someone into one’s life for a critical period of time when they deserve the support needed to get back to their life. Hafsa works with individuals from diverse cultural and religious backgrounds while incorporating cultural sensitivity into her work to accommodate and respect differences in opinions, values, and attitudes of various cultures. She is affirming of the LGBTQTI+ community and works with individuals 13+.
