I earned my Bachelors degree in Psychology from the Lebanese American University in Beirut, Lebanon. I later moved to the United States, and earned my Masters and Ed.S. degrees in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from James Madison University. I have been immersed in the mental health field since early adulthood, during which I have gained experience in working with various populations, including college students, immigrants, forensically-involved individuals, survivors of trauma and abuse, as well as people with Serious and Persistent Mental Illness. I utilize an Integrative Approach to psychotherapy, in which I derive techniques from various schools of thought, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, instead of using a one-size-fits-all method. I specialize in the clinical areas of
Trauma and Abuse, Mood Disorders (Depression and Bipolar), and Anxiety Disorders.
