Best way for potential clients to contact you


Hi! I'm Dr. Tameer a licensed clinical psychologist. I believe the foundation of a helping relationship lies in fostering a safe space in which a person can show up as they are and reveal their vulnerabilities in the presence of a therapist who holds them in positive regard, while highlighting their strengths and exploring together areas of growth. Within this therapeutic space, I work collaboratively with individuals and witness their transformative self-healing as they learn to tap into reservoirs of inner strength, courage, and self-care.

What is a superpower folks with ADHD have?

Individuals with ADHD often possess the superpower of hyperfocus. When they are truly engaged with something that captivates their interest, their concentration can become laser-sharp, allowing them to be extraordinarily creative and productive. Think of it as having a mental turbo button!

What is a superpower folks with anxiety have?

Those with anxiety frequently have an incredible ability for empathy and sensitivity towards others. Their acute awareness of emotions can make them exceptional at connecting with people, making them the superheroes of understanding and relational depth.

Why do you refer clients to focused space?

I refer clients to focused because it’s like having a gym membership, but for your brain. It offers tools and spaces that help strengthen mental muscles in ways that are both structured and supportive—perfect for those looking to enhance their mental fitness outside of therapy sessions.

What do you recommend to help clients focus on their work?

Focusing can be as challenging as listening to a symphony in a room full of squeaky toys. One strategy I often recommend is the "Pomodoro Technique": short bursts of focused work followed by brief breaks. It’s like interval training for your brain, helping you to not only maintain concentration but also to appreciate those well-deserved pauses! Another effective approach I recommend is harnessing the power of accountability and social-emotional support in the presence of others. This is where platforms like Focused shine. They offer a community environment that bolsters individual efforts with the support and motivation of others. It's akin to rowing in a crew team—everyone's oars hitting the water together not only propels the boat forward but also keeps each rower in sync and focused on the collective goal. This kind of group dynamic can significantly amplify personal commitment and success, creating a shared journey toward improved focus and mental resilience.

How would you describe your unique style of working with clients?

My style is a bit like jazz music—improvisational yet deeply attentive to the rhythm of each client’s needs. I blend traditional techniques with spontaneous adjustments based on real-time feedback, creating a therapeutic experience that is both dynamic and finely tuned to each individual’s journey.

Is there a recent testimonial you'd like to share from a client?

Best to hear from clients directly on Zocdoc here.

What does mental wellbeing mean to you?

To me, mental wellbeing is the art of balancing life’s complexities with a sense of peace and self-compassion. It’s about having the tools and support to dance gracefully—even when the music changes suddenly. It’s not just about surviving; it’s about thriving, enjoying life’s ups and downs with resilience and maybe even a smile (:

Treatment Approach

Therapy can be a transformative healing experience, and I strive to treat it as such, with deep compassion, non-judgment, and empathic attunement. It’s my goal to offer practical resources that clients can put into practice immediately in their lives. I use both modern approaches and tried and true methods to fit each client’s individual needs. Everyone can achieve more personal growth and strength, and it’s an honor to work on that together.
