Frequently Asked Questions - Muslim Women Therapists

What is a Female Muslim Therapist?

A female Muslim therapist is somebody who understands the unique set of challenges that Muslims face. They have likely experienced many of the same struggles themselves and can provide empathy and guidance during therapy sessions. Ultimately, if you are looking for support in a confidential and safe setting with someone you don’t have to explain your religious stance to, then a therapist may be the right choice for you.

  • Working through relationship issues
  • Dealing with family conflict

Why Consider Seeing a Female Muslim Therapist?

If you’re looking for a muslim therapist who understands your culture and your religious values, then a female Muslim therapist may be the right fit for you. Many individuals complain of not being understood, or having to explain their religious or cultural values. Seeing a Muslim therapist allows one to come into therapy with the confidence that their worldview is already known and accepted. In addition, female Muslim therapists often use Islamic concepts and methods in their treatment, which can be very beneficial for Muslim women.

At Cedarway Therapy all of our female Muslim mental health professionals specialize in social work and counselling to help you address issues related to anxiety, depression and various other mental health issues. Having said that, if you have been looking for a safe space to discuss your faith based related issues, schedule a consultation today and let’s work together to support one another.
