Professional statement

Dr. Latifat Cabirou offers a warm, empathic, and collaborative therapy space that reflects her passion for helping individuals build more authentic and meaningful lives. She is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist who has worked with individuals across the lifespan and finds great joy in working with adolescents, young adults, and middle-aged adults. Dr. Cabirou has worked with clients with various presenting concerns including depression, anxiety, life transition, stress, relationship issues, identity, education/career, and family-of-origin. She has specialized training in working with college students, immigrants, and trauma survivors.

Dr. Cabirou's clinical experiences in emergency rooms, inpatient psychiatric hospitals, community counseling centers, and university counseling centers has allowed her to experience clients at different phases of their journeys through wellness. This has helped Dr. Cabirou to be well-attuned to clients' unique needs and be creative with how clients are supported in working towards therapy goals.

Dr. Cabirou's approach to therapy is rooted in existential & interpersonal therapies, which allows her and clients to focus on understanding the self and the meaning clients make out of their experiences, while attending to their interpersonal relationships and social functioning. Dr. Cabirou also regularly incorporates techniques and interventions from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to achieve therapy goals. Regardless of clients' presenting concerns, Dr. Cabirou's culture-centered approach allows her to attend to the intersections of clients' cultural identities and how it impacts their experience of the world.


Message to clients

I am committed to providing culturally responsive services to individuals from marginalized and underrepresented backgrounds, especially with regards to racial/ethnic minorities, immigrants, LGBTQ+, and Muslims. I am aware that for many people, deciding to see a therapist and selecting who to trust your life narrative with is a big decision. You are welcome to schedule a free 15-minute consultation with me to discuss how we may work together.

I respond promptly to phone calls and emails.
