Sairah Abbasi, ASW
Seeking support for your current difficulties or past experiences takes courage and strength.
Therapy is an excellent way to process life’s hardships through establishing personalized tools for change and empowerment of the self. My goal is to support you within your healing journey through a safe, comfortable, and open space to explore such hardships. I use a collaborative approach to establish goals for change and personal growth. Whether that may be improving your self-worth, managing stress, regulating difficult emotions, improving your relationships, or finding respite, this is your space.
As a therapist, I have experience working with clients experiencing Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, BPD, Bipolar Disorder, family/relationship conflict, childhood trauma, and reduced self-worth. I use an individualized approach to fit each client’s needs, drawing from therapeutic treatments such as CBT, DBT, EMDR, ACT, Strength-Based Therapy, and Mindfulness techniques.
At times it can be difficult to put ourselves first, however it is never too late to start! I work with clients from adolescence through adulthood, and couples. I also work exclusively using TeleHealth (video sessions). This is a great option for clients with busy work schedules, parenting demands, time constraints, health conditions, and travel expenses.
My educational background includes a Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Southern California, as well as a Bachelor of Arts from Montclair State University with a concentration in Gender, Sexuality & Women’s Studies. My experience includes working with survivors of domestic violence, human trafficking, and individuals who have caused harm, including experience supporting clients within a shelter setting and a community mental health center.
A fun fact about me is that I truly admire poetry! Some of my favorite poets include Rupi Kaur, Yung Pueblo, Madisen Kuhn and r.h. Sin. When I’m not at work, you can generally find me with a warm cup of coffee reading one of their poems.
