A bit about my approach to therapy
" I strongly believe that no one knows your body as good as you. What may work for one cleint may not work for you. So my approach with you will be that of a partnership. Through headway, I only see a limited number of clients in a week, due to my other academic, and coaching/consulting obligations" .
" DR. RIYAZ DOES NOT PRESCRIBE CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES LIKE STIMULANTS OR BENZODIAZEPINES LIKE XANAX, ATIVAN ETC AT THIS TIME"
What you can expect from our first session
"I will ensure that you feel heard. We will first get a detailed history. I will then go over the diagnosis, prognosis, and together we will come up with a treatment plan, that will help you in managing your illness to the best of your ability. Sometimes it does take us a couple of different sessions to come up with a proper diagnosis, and a proper treatment plan. I do use a lot of Motivational interviewing and some Life coaching skills when it comes to setting goals for your recovery"
