Moonlight Marriage and Family Therapy

Mahnoor Rehman, LMFT

I am a passionate and trauma informed therapist operating out of the Bay Area, California. I help children, teens and adults overcome their challenges in order to live happier lives. I understand that each individual is unique, therefore I utilize therapeutic modalities that are the best fit for your and/or your child. I'll work with you to develop a customized treatment plan that supports your wellbeing through a warm and non-judgmental approach. Being a South Asian female of color it fulfills me to provide care to BIPOC, refugees and immigrant communities.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you take insurance?

Yes! I am currently paneled with Lyra, Aetna and Cigna insurance companies.

What is a typical therapy appointment?

The therapist will ask questions about your presenting concerns, as well as your history and background. Most likely, you'll find yourself talking about your current symptoms or struggles, as well saying a bit about your relationships, your interests, your strengths, and your goals.

What benefits can I expect from working with a therapist?

Therapists can provide support, problem-solving skills, and enhanced coping strategies for issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship troubles, unresolved childhood issues, grief, stress management, body image issues and creative blocks.

Will I be 'cured' after receiving a certain number of therapy sessions?

Every person along with their background, life circumstances and challenges can be so different. While there may not be a definitive answer to a patient feeling cured after a certain number of sessions, therapy can assist you in improving the quality of your life. You may find yourself being able to calm your worrying mind, identify negative self-talk, find resolutions in your relationships, feel more motivated about your future, and process past trauma. Therapy can be a continued resource which you can access in different stages of your life as you need it.
