About Fatima – CBT and Neurotherapist in Whitby ON
Since before my career began, I have been a self-motivated advocate for marginalized communities. I started working about 8 years ago in the field as a Child and Youth Care Worker in residential, school-based, and youth justice settings. More recently, I have obtained my Master of Social Work (MSW) from York University, which has led me to working with adults as a psychotherapist at Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences.
I am an empathetic and caring therapist that focuses on delivering the best outcomes for my clients. I can personally connect to barriers and frustrations that many people may experience when accessing supports and services. I strive to create a therapeutic relationship based on mutual trust and commitment so that our sessions are relaxed and soothing and can actually produce the change you are looking to see.
I work with teens and adults using Cognitive Behavioral Therapies such as: CBT, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Processing (a brief form of therapy) and LENS Neurofeedback in order to help increase awareness and control of patterns of thoughts, body reactions, and emotions that keep symptoms in place. I may also use the Safe and Sound Protocol for clients presenting issues related to trauma, inattention and social anxiety.
