Naeema Akter, PsyD
When disconnected and overwhelmed by the world and those around you, you may experience feeling dissatisfied or drained with your relationships, occupation and other aspects of your life. Or you may be curious about your inner experiences and want to learn more about yourself in order to become more self-aware, present, and adept at handling life’s troubles. I believe psychotherapy is a collaborative approach, where I am open and nonjudgmental to your experiences and help you create and live a life you find fulfilling.
My doctoral training and years of delivering psychotherapy have provided me with extensive experience helping adults with anxiety, depression, substance abuse, trauma, identity exploration, adjustment and life transition issues, and other life situations. I have experience in outpatient and inpatient hospitals and community mental health clinics. My integrative approach is well-suited for addressing interpersonal and multicultural issues. I work from a social justice-oriented and trauma-informed lens to provide you with culturally competent treatment.
