Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate
Are you searching for a compassionate and knowledgeable therapist in Houston, Texas? Look no further! My name is Syeda Mariam Hasnain, but you can call me Mariam. As a dedicated Marriage and Family Therapist Associate, I’m here to guide you through life’s challenges with warmth, understanding, and expertise.
I have a deep connection to Houston, where I was born and raised. My journey in mental health began with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Texas A&M University. Currently, I’m pursuing my master’s in education, focusing on Marriage and Family Therapy at Lamar University. My dedication to this field stems from a desire to diversify counseling and offer quality care to everyone, especially those who may not have historically had access to therapy services.
I chose to become a therapist because I believe in the power of change and growth. My goal is to empower you to navigate stress, anxiety, and depression, which are common challenges in our society. Together, we’ll create a safe and secure space where you can explore your unique situation and discover the strength within you.
In our sessions, whether you’re an individual, a couple, or a family, I foster an environment where you can make meaningful changes. We’ll address challenges that are specific to you and delve into their roots. I’m here to facilitate your transformation using strategies that you already possess.
