Professional statement

Dr. Afshan Mohamedali is a licensed clinical psychologist working with both individuals and couples in Long Island, NY. She specializes in working with adults experiencing distress due to fluctuations in mood, changing life circumstances, difficult relationships, and uncertain identity.

Afshan approaches sessions with an understanding that we all have areas in our lives we are sensitive to, patterns or themes that keep coming up again. She helps patients recognize these themes and understand how they might unknowingly contribute to them. In discovering agency and power, these cycles can be interrupted and lead to the positive outcomes they’ve been hoping for.

Afshan uses her own background and experience working with minority populations in her work. She has worked with a range of patients, including college students, early professionals, new parents, and older adults. Her style integrates multiple approaches to therapy, emphasizing insight as a mechanism of change in conjunction with a thorough examination of behaviors that can get in the way.

Afshan is also a clinical supervisor to postdoctoral fellows and an adjunct professor of psychology at Adelphi University.


Message to clients

This work starts with establishing a relationship with a therapist you feel comfortable with and will respect your thoughts, feelings, and life experiences. I place a lot of emphasis on ensuring a good match between my patients and myself so that the therapeutic work can be successful. I offer a space marked by both relief from stress and challenge toward change. I encourage curiosity about the self, employ humor and metaphor in my work, and believe that authenticity is key.

I am not a silent therapist and believe that my relationships with patients should be collaborative. Please feel free to contact me to talk about how I can help you.
