Thank you for your interest in learning more about me. My name is Farhat Hasan, and I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Texas. I have an Educational Specialist degree in Counseling from Mississippi State University and a Master of Education degree in Counseling from the University of Mississippi. I have 9 years of experience as a counselor in both face-to-face and online modalities and have provided services to clients from diverse backgrounds in a variety of settings including schools, residential drug rehabilitation centers, in-patient, outpatient, and in group homes.
My numerous professional experiences in hospitals, rehabilitation centers, clinics, and in schools have equipped me with an exceptional set of abilities and clinical expertise, which help me assist my clients in reaching their unique goals.
I have experience working with anxiety, depression, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anger management, family conflict, relationship conflicts, drug abuse, post-partum stress, and trauma/abuse. I also have experience working with depression, intellectual/developmental disabilities, mild autism, international students/spouses, and immigrant populations.
My counseling philosophy is based on accepting the individual (including/considering their background), life experiences, and personal beliefs. My counseling approach is client-centered - I work with clients together to help them develop insight and to identify their strengths, which they can use immediately to make changes. I also help them monitor that change, so that they can continue to work toward their goals. I will be there to guide, encourage and, if appropriate, challenge them, to help them see and take appropriate steps on their own to overcome their obstacles.
Most of all, I offer a listening ear to hear and authenticate client’s thoughts and emotions and help them build a plan to facilitate moving forward. Therapy can be a fun and simple journey with me, and I always work with my clients where they stand in that moment. It takes huge strength and will-power to seek help. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
