Message to clients

In sessions with me, no topic is off limits, and nothing is “too big” or “too small” to talk about. All thoughts, beliefs, and feelings are welcome.

If you are someone who is interested to better understand yourself, your relationship with friends or lovers, or are going through a difficult life change, my approach may be a good fit for you. Whether you’re facing a new problem or an older one, I would love to be here for you to listen and to help.

Working with me, you will find me to be curious, warm, and direct at times. You will be at the center, and my approach will be tailored to your worldview, challenges, and strengths. This is why we take a unique approach at The Flatiron Center, where all new clients start by completing a personality profile that will inform our goals moving forward. My clients will discover that as I a therapist, I hope to be supportive and collaborative in helping you pave a happier and healthier life.

As a Bahraini-American binational, I have a deep curiosity and appreciation for cultural lived experiences. I have committed much of my clinical practice thus far to working with diverse or international clients. Therapy can sometimes feel like an alien space, which mirrors the isolation and confusion you might feel in your daily life. My goal is to make therapy a space that feels right and safe for you.
