To reintroduce myself:
Hello, my name is Habiba Jessica Zaman! I have a master’s degree in professional counseling from Georgia State University.
I view my clients as those in search of some type of change in their lives. Together we work towards growth by identifying the issues involved, establishing goals, and becoming increasingly aware of reoccurring patterns that prevent growth. As awareness of one’s fears, perception, desires and strengths increase, we are able to make successful life changes. Self-awareness by becoming more honest with ourselves, can initiate the authenticity that often results in healing, transformation and a fuller life. As individuals exist within cultural contexts which heavily influence all facets of who we are including our world view, relationships, decision making and identity, I strive to utilize cultural sensitivity in my practice.
My primary style is trauma focused therapy and solution focused therapy with adults and adolescents to empower and directly address each individual needs. I often utilize play therapy for children to help better understand their own ability to solve problems and find their potential. I provide a safe, nurturing and judgment free environment for my clients because I believe a good relationship and trust are essential for change and growth. I work successfully with clients addressing most life issues including family and relationship problems, self growth, depression and anxiety, life changes and adjustments, grief, abuse and trauma.
