Faiza notes that her main philosophy is taking a person-centered approach. She believes that if a collaborative approach is taken and an individual is given the chance to direct their own journey through counseling, they will achieve the best results. She believes in adapting styles depending on the client and meeting them where they are at. Faiza notes, “I am honest and I want the best for anyone who comes through my door.”
