Faiza Samad, Therapist
(AR License P1509106)
I believe we are all good people who face tough challenges. Helping others is my calling. I have worked with numerous populations including; families/couples, as well as individually with children, adolescents, and adults who struggle with anxiety (stress), depression (sadness), grief, and trauma. I have experience with eating disorders and post-bariatric care. I have also completed a one-year fellowship with children diagnosed with autism from the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston.
My theoretical approach to counseling is predominantly cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) with influences from client-centered (Rogerian Therapy). I create a warm, caring, non-judgmental, motivating and often humorous environment that fosters trust and hope. It is my desire to help my clients reach their full potential. I am also skilled at helping clients with goal setting.
In my free time, I enjoy traveling, adventure and spending time with my family.
