Announcement icon I am providing HIPPA compliant video/teletherapy to clients as well as phone sessions when that is preferable to clients.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, by the State Board of Marriage and Family Therapy Examiners of the State of New Jersey. I hold a Master degree in Clinical Counseling from William Paterson University. Providing a supportive and safe space for the process of healing to occur is of the utmost importance to me as a therapist. I serve adults and adolescents who may be be struggling with mood and/or personality disorders. Those include but are not limited to: depression, anxiety, adjustment disorders including PTSD, substance use, grief and loss, self-growth, relationships and interpersonal stressors and domestic violence.
My approach is client-centered and is based in existential therapy. I also use cognitive behavior therapy, psychodynamic skills as well as dialectical behavior therapy including mindfulness, emotion regulation, and distress tolerance. My goal is to provide clients with a personalized approach, a safe and supportive space, that is free of judgement.
I am part of Wayne Behavioral Service, a multi-disciplinary psychiatric practice that provides a full spectrum of services, for children, adults, families and geriatric clients. I conduct therapy in English and Arabic. For appointments and more information about my practice and Wayne Behavioral Service please contact me at (973)790-9222.
