An experienced therapist who specializes in working with Black women who are struggling with anxiety, life transitions, and desire healthy relationships

My name is Fatima and I am the owner of Path of Discovery Counseling Services and Sis Heal Yourself. I am a licensed clinical social worker with a background in mental health. I have worked with a variety of populations over my career and received my degree close to a decade ago. What's most important for you to know about me though, is that I have once sat in your seat (and still!).

I have gone to therapy myself and found how beneficial it is to my life. I know what it's like to be on the other side of the chair… to pour my heart out to someone I'm not sure I should trust… to develop a meaningful therapeutic relationship… and then see the beauty unfold as I learn about myself, how to adjust my thinking and resolve issues of my past.

I am so excited to work with you, and if you're still not sure about therapy, schedule a consultation anyway. I offer coaching services as well.

One of my life's missions is to create spaces for Black women to be free to be themselves, and to be set free –from pain, heartache, insecurity, etc. Sis I want you living a life full of peace, authenticity, love, and joy!
