Hi there! Thank you for taking the time to explore my profile; I am grateful!
My approach to counseling high school students for over 10 years, was based on solution-focused brief counseling, reality and cognitive-behavioral counseling theories. Services delivered included group counseling, individual counseling, classroom guidance lessons, consultation, and collaboration. By using one of the theories and services, I helped students identify and develop plans to confront issues, thoughts, and/or emotions that may interfere with their educational goals. Additionally, I prepared students for life after high school with academic planning and career advisement. As a licensed clinical mental health counselor, my approach to counseling continues to be solution focused and from a strengths-based approach. I believe the clients with whom I have the honor of working, have the answers within them and my role is to partner with them in identifying the solution so they can live more aligned and joyful lives.
My experiences have afforded me the opportunity to work closely with individuals to provide support and counseling to young people and adults in the areas of, depression, self-esteem, family/life stress, anxiety as well as emotional management. As a counselor, my desire is to support individuals as they work toward wellness.
I am currently a PhD student at North Carolina State University. My decision to pursue a doctoral degree was fueled by my desire to be as equipped as possible to best serve each person with whom I work.

Karimah helps me balance the ins and outs of my life and is great to talk to. I feel like she genuinely cares about me and wants to help me think through ways I can better myself and my life
Karimah has been working with my son for a couple of months and I’ve seen a noticeable difference in his mood during this time. He’s more engaged, interested and positive than I’ve seen him in awhile. He looks forward to their chats! She’s responsive to us and I’m exceptionally grateful for her expertise, care and concern.
I have really meshed well with Karimah. I feel grateful that she made me at ease from the get-go. She has a way of directing me to my own answers: to see my own truth. She is very compassionate, patient, personable, observant; all the things a good counselor should be.
Karimah has been a great support in helping me work through some of the challenges I've set in front of me. She's thoughtful, warm, and focussed on helping me examine the lenses through which I'm viewing situations so that they can best serve me in positive ways. I'm so grateful to be working with her!
Karimah has been great with my boyfriend and I! Being that we are in a long distance relationship, she allows me to facetime him while we are in our session so he can be in our the session. It’s been amazing and it’s really helping us grow.
Karimah is really helping me navigate my anxiety and depression.
