About My Clients

Do you often feel overwhelmed or anxious? Have you experienced panic attacks or relationship issues with friends, family, or significant other(s)? Maybe you are having difficulty adjusting to a life change or change in general. Sometimes experiences and situations can feel quite heavy, but I am here to tell you--you don't have to carry it alone. Together we can explore your world, and discover how you can gain relief, control, acceptance, connection, or a positive change in your life.

My Background and Approach

It is empowering to have accessible tools to utilize when you need it most. Whether you are experiencing panic attacks, anxiety, relationship issues, or adjustment difficulties, I can provide you with ways to work through those difficult moments. We will experiment to find tools that work best to give you relief from negative feelings or experiences. No two individuals are the same, so I operate from an integrative approach, drawing from cognitive behavioral, trauma and solution focused, acceptance and commitment, mindfulness and other therapies, to meet clients where they are and explore what works best for them as a unique individual. My style is directive, supportive, empathetic, and non-judgmental to build a respectful and collaborative therapeutic relationship. I will provide a safe space to express yourself authentically and process fully, while pointing out connections along the way. I provide activities for you between sessions to encourage actively working toward your goals.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe creating a warm, trusting, and supportive environment can help you to safely process your emotions and experiences, and allow you to comfortably heal and grow. Therapy looks different for each unique individual, and that is just another way to celebrate our differences. I am an LGBTQIA+ ally and supporter of the Black Lives Matter movement. I welcome clients of all backgrounds, and am committed to understanding you and your experiences to better support you on your healing journey. Growing up as a first generation Arab-American, I understand the difficulties that come with multicultural issues, from immigration, to racism, to identity conflict. I believe my exposure to these types of situations has better equipped me to work with diverse clients. While each person is unique, we can also draw upon similarities to bring communities closer and to learn how to better cope with life stressors.
