About Me

On the inside, you are confused, hurting, and you don't like to feel this way. You feel free when you become intoxicated, binged, yell at those closest to you, sometimes, you find yourself alone staring and thinking. You feel something, you are just not able to say exactly what's bothering you. The more you try to pretend everything is okay, the more you see yourself losing your grip on things around you. You tell yourself, things will get better, you put your best smile on for the world, it continues to get worse.

All individuals and relationships have unique challenges and strengths. My goals is to help you focus on your strengths and work on those things that threatened the vitality of it. The difficulties we experience, and despite what we may have been taught to believe, are sometimes really our friend.

It is an invitation that I am willing to learn and participate with you in your story. I want to learn and understand your perspective and preferences, your lived experience and the meanings and understandings associated with your lived experience,s your future goals by emphasizing the whole person.

My therapeutic goal is to convey to you that you are valued as a unique human being. That you have something worthy of saying and hearing. This means, I will respect and honor the way you choose to tell your story, what parts you prefer to share and the knowledge you desire or wish to convey. My goal is to engage in a dialogue with you not a monologue; yet, not expect certain types of answers and information, make judgments or attempt to direct your answers to what I believe they should be.

Nadirah is helping us getting to the root of our issues. She is very knowledgeable, communicates in a timely manner, and is also very patient with us. We appreciate all these qualities in our counselor!

Nadirah has been very accommodating to our schedules and available times because of our kids and work which is the only reason we have been able to schedule any sessions. She seems very good at what she does, knows when to listen, when to interrupt, when to talk and when to instruct. We are still young in therapy but I can say it's helped in the short time we have gone which has been invaluable to us. One late session we had Nadirah stayed over an hour and a half past the scheduled time because we were making progress and it was obvious she genuinely cared about helping us, it wasn't just about collecting a paycheck. We are thankful and will continue to work with Nadirah as long as she will have us.

Mrs Muhammad is very patient and understanding. She is an excellent listener and does a wonderful job guiding my husband and I through the process of addressing the origins of our issues. She has given us tools to demonstrate how to overcome our individual issues in order to effectively communicate and be better as a couple.

Nadirah is very patient and understanding. She has given us so many tools to help with our communication. She is great about remaining balanced/neutral and not placing any blame but just offering guidance on how to improve our communication and marriage.
