I believe that therapy is like building a warm and safe sanctuary together. A therapeutic space is one where we can comfortably be ourselves and process our past and present lives. Drawing from my South Asian and Muslim background, I bring an integrative and culturally sensitive approach to healing, rooted in trauma-informed practices. My aim is to provide you with a safe and non-judgemental space to share your life story and work collaboratively to discover or rediscover your values and meaning in life. Picture yourself as the driver, steering your life's journey, with me as your passenger.
I specialize in working with attachment based trauma, life transitions, anxiety, self-esteem, grief & loss, and spiritual/existential struggles. I alter my approach based on your unique lived experiences, worldviews and values. I integrate techniques from Mindful Self-Compassion Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Attachment-Based Modalities.
Taking the first step to reaching out can be difficult so I want to thank you for beginning this journey towards healing. I hope to support you and make this process as comfortable as I can. I offer free 15 minute consultation as I believe that it's important for my clients to get a feel of what my presence is like.
