Taking a moment to think about yourself is the first step towards greater insight, so congratulations on taking your first major step towards your self-understanding journey! In life, we all face personal challenges and difficult experiences that can lead to overwhelming feelings, especially when we struggle with them alone.
As your multicultural competent therapist, I create a supportive, confidential environment where I assist in guiding you as you take steps towards positive life changes, healing, and a healthy mind. Through this empathetic space, you (the client) will feel safe to explore your thoughts and feelings at your own pace. I believe that you are the expert in your life, and I am here to guide you in the process of self-discovery, growth, and understanding with compassion, directness, and empathy. My style is one of openness and non-judgmental acceptance. I utilize an eclectic therapy approach, which draws upon multiple theories and styles such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, and various other tools to address your unique needs and to assist you in reaching your goals and finding balance in life.
I believe in collaborating with my clients in sessions to help them with their areas of need while empowering them to use their strengths and learned tools to overcome difficulties. I work with individuals, couples, and families from diverse backgrounds in both English and Arabic. Some of my areas of specialization include Addiction, Depression, Anxiety, Stress-Related Concerns, Trauma, Grief, Parenting, Life Transitions, Personality Disorders, OCD, Sexual/Emotional/Physical Abuse, Codependency, Women’s Issues, and Relationship Issues. I graduated with a Masters Degree in Mental Health Counseling from the University of Florida. I look forward to meeting you and supporting you on this journey!
