Hello, I am Bahiyya
I'm a Licensed Master Social Worker providing Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Recovery-Oriented Cognitive Therapy (CT-R) counseling to clients in need.
I earned my Bachelors in Psychology from Dowling College and my Masters in Social Work from Adelphi University. I've worked in many different clinical settings ever since. I am a passionate and empathetic therapist with strong counseling abilities and an understanding of interpersonal familial relationships. I have experience leading clients through PTSD and trauma related issues, sexual identification and exploration as well as family discord. Through clinical experience, compassion, and empathy I support and assist those willing to make a positive difference in their lives. I pride myself in providing a safe and supportive space, to work side by side to overcome traumas, and barriers. I specialize in addressing Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Recovery-Oriented Cognitive Therapy (CT-R). I am fully committed to listen and offer my best professional practices to help you.
I am nurturing, attentive, open to learning about your lifestyle and guiding you through decision making processes. You can count on my empathetic and person-centered approach towards every conversation we take part on. Thank you for taking the first step and for allowing me to be part of this very important journey.
