SRI Psychological Services in Jenkintown highlights therapist Mushiyrah Sharif, LMFT

SRI Psychological Services, a private practice in Jenkintown since 1995, is highlighting therapist Mushiyrah Sharif, LMFT.

Hi, my name is Mushiyrah and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I earned my master’s degree at LaSalle University in 2016. I have been working in the field since I have worked with adults, couples, children and families. I currently see individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, relationship challenges, issues surrounding separation and divorce, substance abuse, and trauma. I also have experience working with first responders (police, fire, corrections, military, and emergency services professionals) struggling with addiction and mental health challenges.

I believe in helping individuals to utilize their strengths and resources. I utilize a narrative approach which allows clients the space to share their experiences and begin to think about new and more healthier ways to develop their preferred narratives. I also frequently pull from cognitive behavioral, and dialectical behavioral approaches. I also examine the multigenerational patterns that influence and inform clients’ thinking and behaviors. In addition, I consider and explore the impact of racial and gender inequalities with my clients, and the impact this has on their mental health.

Lastly, but most importantly, I never take it lightly that reaching out for help is sometimes the most difficult step. For that reason, I approach each client with empathy and compassion.
