I became a therapist because I believe healing is imminent. Every therapy session is an opportunity to remove barriers of judgment and shame that frequently block access to self-knowledge, self-compassion, self-acceptance, and self-appreciation. I’m passionate about and experienced in working with eating disorders, body image concerns, OCD, anxiety, ADHD, depressive disorders, culture shock/cultural integration, cultural/spiritual identity, international identity, and diversity-related issues.
My view of individual psychological makeup is psychodynamic, interpersonal, and spiritual while I also frequently draw from my extensive training in CBT, DBT, ACT, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy. I am in the process of becoming a clinical hypnotherapist certified by the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis (ASCH).
In addition to seeing a large number of American clients, I am experienced working with individuals from Eastern and Western European, Balkan (i.e., Bosnia, Albania, Kosovo, Macedonia, etc. ), Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, Central Asian (i.e., Azerbaijan, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan), South Asian, and East Asian regions of the world.
