Allowing yourself to be supported and uplifted during times of unease is the first step towards becoming your best self. However, without adequate support, overcoming feelings of overwhelm, sadness, disconnection, or insecurity can be an isolating and exhausting experience. This why I understand the importance of finding the right therapist.

You may be seeking to feel truly heard and understood without judgment by someone you can truly trust to help you feel more grounded, confident, and satisfied in your everyday life. As a therapist, my main goal is to create that safe and trusting relationship to guide and empower you towards achieving ultimate personal growth and to begin feeling like the best version of yourself. Together, as a team, we will utilize our relationship as a solid foundation to explore and tackle your greatest hopes and challenges, with a bit humor and lots of compassion along the way. I also understand that suffering and healing looks different for everyone. For this reason, I utilize a culturally-sensitive, personalized blend of therapeutic approaches that best fits your unique needs.

I am extremely passionate about working with young adults and adults from diverse cultural backgrounds who may struggle with a sense of otherness and never fully feeling understood, with a specialization in Arab-American and Muslim mental health. I also love helping people overcome relationship difficulties, identity and self-esteem concerns, adjustment issues and major life transitions, trauma, anxiety, and depression.

You're taking the first steps to change, and a better understanding of yourself and others. Relief may happen more quickly than you ever imagined, or, it could occur over a longer period of time. The great thing about therapy is we will take whatever time you need to accomplish your goals.

Hi there, I believe that everyone has their own inner ‘garden,’ which has the potential to be bountiful, beautiful, and serene. If we want to maintain our gardens and have them represent the most beautiful aspects of our lives, we need to nourish them and water them regularly. Keeping our gardens beautiful and vibrant does take work, but it is work that makes life more joyous and manageable. I view psychotherapy as a practice that can help you to support your garden so that it, and you, can flourish. Helping individuals and families tend to their gardens, remove weeds, and plant new seeds: this is my greatest purpose.

I look forward to helping you manifest your garden.

My approach relies on collaboration with my clients in order to develop individual treatment plans.

I believe the answers to many of our worries lie within us, yet often life events make finding clarity problematic. My goal is for clients to learn how to navigate their current experiences and find balance and peace within their lives.

I see my role as a facilitator where the focus is assisting my clients in achieving integrated and progressive healing. Our work together is based on safely addressing issues of concern while finding a path to healthy and stable choices that work for your life and circumstances. Each step forward of unwinding the challenges you are facing leads to healthy choices that enhance and improve your life.

Relationships are the food for our soul. Sometimes, our relationships nurture us, bring us joy and provide us with a foundation to grow. Sometimes we find ourselves in relationships that are consistently not fulfilling or even worse, hurtful. This can be an individual occurrence, or part of a larger repetitive pattern. Either way, when our relationships are out of sync, we need to look at what changes need to be made, both in ourselves, in our choices of the people we fill our lives with and in our way of communicating with others.

I am dedicated to meeting the emotional and psychological needs of my clients. My approach is to be caring and compassionate, while also trying to be direct in guiding clients through their process. I believe that counseling can help individuals and families move in new directions, fostering growth and a sense of well-being. I work with people from all walks of life. Change is possible; what we long for is not beyond reach.
My goal in working with clients is to help them gain the skills needed to cope effectively with life’s stressors, engage meaningfully with others, manage distressing feelings, regulate emotions, reduce impulsivity, increase self-confidence, communicate effectively, and to learn to express their needs successfully. I am a firm believer that we all want to do well.

I want you to know that I am here and appreciate the anxieties and/or hesitation in beginning the therapeutic journey. I want to tell you to trust how you feel in the room with someone and to take your time in finding what works for you. I also would like the opportunity to help and have the tools to do so. Together, we can figure out some things and help find you relief. It can get better. You are enough and everything you need may already be inside of you—we just may need to help you bring it out.
