Professional statement

Nisreen believes that we long to be ourselves in a society that socializes us to feel and internalize inadequacy. We often find ourselves recreating patterns as a means to cope. Perhaps you have done some self-reflection and are seeking a deeper understanding or have not yet had the opportunity to explore and bring these patterns into awareness at all. In joining with you wherever you may be, she aims to help you strengthen your emotional awareness and develop a greater sense of introspection. Through your work together, she will support you on your journey back to your authentic self. Nisreen's goal is to empower you with the self-confidence and self-compassion to live a life that serves the most inherent version of you, trusting that you are already whole and complete.

Nisreen received a dual master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling from Columbia University, and is currently completing post-graduate training in eating disorders at the Center for the Study of Anorexia & Bulimia (CSAB). She takes great pride in prioritizing ongoing extensive training in psychodynamic and behavioral therapies (DBT, RODBT). At Aurora, she works with adults and adolescents around various interrelated concerns including disordered eating, body image, depression, self-worth, anxiety, sexuality, and gender identity.

Message to clients

I am a middle eastern, queer, woman who recognizes that we do not leave our social identities at the door before we enter therapy. Utilizing an intersectional, anti-racist, and anti-oppressive approach to counseling, I strive to create an empowering therapeutic environment for those who are marginalized and have been historically excluded from such spaces. Showing up can feel challenging but doing so is the first step to healing, resilience, and insight. I invite you to reach out with any questions regarding treatment style and services.
