I'm honored you're considering going on your healing journey with me. I am confident I can assist you in reaching your therapy goals to live a happier and healthier life. I have 8 years of experience providing group and individual therapy. My focus is in helping adults recover from childhood attachment traumas that manifest as anxiety, depression, overwhelm, and adjustment issues. I am also a certified yoga instructor (YTT 200), in which I incorporate into treatment. Together, we'll create a plan for healing that makes you feel witnessed and safe.
The treatment modalities I use are Internal Family Systems (IFS), Yoga, EMDR, & cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). I can help with integration of psychedelic experiences (MAPS trained) and offer treatment through a spiritual lens if applicable. During our time together you will find that my approach to therapy always centers around a trauma informed lens.
I provide a judgement free space for you to be able to make the positive changes you are seeking. I can't wait to meet you! Note: I do not condone or support the use of illegal substances. I only offer integration of prior psychedelic experiences.

Mahjabeen is trauma informed and trained in Accelerated Resolution Therapy. She has clinical experience in working with individuals with depression, anxiety, ADD/ADHD, physical abuse, emotional abuse, emotional neglect, and sexual abuse. In this, she utilizes a “non-pathologizing” model and enjoys collaboratively and empathetically working with clients to help them develop a deeper understanding of their personhood and their stories, with the goal of empowering them to rewrite those stories as needed so that they can experience true connectedness with themselves, others, and the world. Connection is a central aspect of her work as human beings are wired for connection and trauma is often the result of both real and perceived disconnection.
Furthermore, in her work, she integrates multiple theoretical viewpoints (Existential therapy, Dialectical Behavior therapy, Acceptance and Commitment therapy, and Relational Cultural therapy) to help clients understand the universal life conditions that all human beings experience, in conjunction with helping them understand and clarify their own individual values, beliefs, and attachment styles. She also provides tools to help clients regulate themselves and increase their internal safety and security so that they can begin to be radically honest with themselves and thus have a necessary foundation for creating lasting, meaningful, personally aligned changes in their lives. Throughout her work with clients, she remains committed to a high level of both multicultural competency and an awareness of the myriad of systemic disparities and how they adversely impact/ present barriers to the healthy development of individual psyches across various intersectional identities.

Have you already tried traditional talk therapy and felt disappointed by it? Perhaps you are skeptical about trying therapy at all. Either way, I am here to help by holding a safe space for you to explore your inner world with the use of EMDR therapy. Many of the clients I work with suffer from trauma, anxiety, depression, PTSD, life transitions, and come from all walks of life. With clients, I have a compassionate approachable demeanor. Clients warm up to me quickly and I enjoy helping them to reach their goals.
I am here to tell you EMDR therapy is a key ingredient for finally finding some relief! Utilizing bilateral stimulation, we allow the brain to do its work to process memories that become “stuck”, causing fears, anxiety, and depression in our present day lives.
After addressing the past and present we will take control of the future and run protocols to assist with any worry about tomorrow. This amazing work is also easily completed virtually.
