Announcement icon No Waitlist. Unlimited Free Sessions offered by clinical interns (click free sessions tab) at my NGO: forasaferspace.org. Virtual Chat Only.
****No Waitlist, unlimited free sessions offered by my clinical interns at https://www.forasaferspace.org/free-sessions.html**** I have obtained the knowledge and clinical experience in working with culturally diverse populations with varying types and severities of emotional and mental health concerns, such as PTSD, anxiety, and depression. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Religion, Sexual Diversity Studies, Women and Gender Studies and Jewish Studies and a Master of Science in Social Work from Columbia University. I will attend Queen's University for my Second Master's degree in Business Management.
I went to many psychotherapy trainings when I was a student in Columbia and I got more than 15 certificates of completion in a very diverse range of psychotherapy modalities such as complicated grief, acceptance and commitment therapy, etc. As an international social work graduate, I am devoted to practice in a culturally sensitive approach.
I am a long-time LGBTQ+ advocate and intersectional feminist. "We are more alike my friend than we are unalike." - Maya Angelou
