Fanai completed her Masters in Counseling Psychology at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. She values authenticity and self-actualization and believes individuals have the inherent knowledge and tools necessary to become better versions of themselves. With this, she aims to serve as a “fellow traveler” to assist clients as they navigate their unique journey. She believes a strong therapeutic relationship can serve as a springboard to emotional healing, growth and self-discovery and works to build trust and foster empathy with her clients. She embraces the ‘here and now’ and works with the client collaboratively to identify obstacles that inhibit progress while incorporating tools that allow it.
Fanai spent over 15 years working in corporate sales and marketing and draws from that experience to help clients navigate “feeling stuck”, work/life balance and/or the desire for change. Other clinical interests include depression, anxiety, trauma and relationship challenges. She enjoys spending time with friends and family, dancing and creative expression.
