Mishaal Riaz


Hi, thanks for being here! My name is Mishaal and I love teaching people about their brains and bodies. I focus on creating a space that is authentic, safe, and non-judgmental. I am a culturally sensitive therapist and advocate for the mental health needs of minority groups.


Through various mental health settings, including 8 years of social work and crisis counseling, I have helped individuals with anxiety, depression, Bipolar Disorder, ADHD, Schizophrenia, substance abuse and domestic violence. This included both group and individual therapy, including a program for people who couldn’t access mental health services due to financial instability. Raising awareness of the importance of mental health is essential to me, and I have provided mental health education to the community through seminars and speaking engagements.


Currently in my private practice, I work with people experiencing depression and anxiety, many of whom are survivors of trauma. I help young adults navigate through the huge and sometimes scary changes that come with adulthood. We address relationship issues, family issues, and help people explore their authentic selves. I provide a safe space for minorities to work through identity issues, family relationships, and racial discrimination.


My area of specialty is trauma therapy, specifically religious trauma. I spent most of my life working in ministry and have personally seen the damage that can sometimes happen in those spaces. I support clients in their healing from experiences that may be affecting their spiritual well-being. The aim of religious trauma therapy is not to sway you towards or away from religion, but to give you a non-religious, non-judgmental space to address and heal from what you’ve experienced. In my trauma-informed practice, I use a variety of methods to help clients. Some of my favorite methods are EMDR, parts work (IFS), and radical acceptance (DBT).
