I also utilize an informed Internal Family Systems (IFS) approach that views the mind as made up of relatively discrete sub-personalities, each with its own unique viewpoint and qualities.
I hope to partner with you toward increased self-awareness, better coping skills, opportunities for growth, empowerment, self-compassion, transforming difficult emotions, responding vs. reacting, and increased control in your life, work, and relationships. My approach is client-centered, individualizing a treatment plan according to your unique needs, and joining you on an internal excavation of the obstacles that keep you from reaching your full potential.

Are you a couple, individual or family in need of new coping skills? Due to the pandemic you may be experiencing more uncertainty, fear, and sadness. Perhaps you're overwhelmed with family dynamics and re-entry. So much of our collective experience has changed in a short period and you may need help processing it all. If you are feeling a bit lost, or experiencing symptoms of depression and anxiety, you may benefit from therapy now.

As a graduate of Pepperdine University’s Marriage & Family Therapy Master’s program with an array of clinical experience, I have worked with children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families to create a more balanced, fulfilled life for each client.
Starting therapy can be overwhelming. My goal is to eliminate that stress and create a space for adolescents, adults, couples, and families to process emotions and explore their identities and their relationships in a non-judgmental, safe environment. We all undergo transitions and experiences that require additional support from an objective third party to allow us to thrive personally and interpersonally. I utilize individualized, evidence-based approaches to foster a collaborative environment that produces long-term change.

My foundation in, attachment, trauma, and family dynamics allows me to partner with you, adapt my clinical expertise to meet your individual needs, and hold a safe place for you to discover your truest potential.
Do you feel disconnected from living a vibrant and engaged life? Do the simplest tasks stand before you like an ocean? Are relationships a source of emotional pain in your life? Our ability to make sense of our emotional experiences can be the key to releasing emotional pain and suffering. Often times, our own cultural perceptions of mental health can prevent us from seeking the help that we need. My personal and professional experiences have influenced my understanding of the value of promoting mental health and how simple changes can have a profound effect on our lives.

I utilize tools from Psychodynamic, Relational, Internal family systems, somatic experience, EMDR, and creative modalities (virtual sand play, art, music).
I believe therapy is a container for self-expression where you can show up exactly as you are. As a person with lived experience of being queer, Arab, Non-binary, and Muslim, I have seen first hand how difficult it is to find someone whose values align around the importance of community and is committed to a trauma-informed framework. Growing up in a world that constantly feeds us narratives such as “healing happens alone” and “we are solely responsible for the state of our own wellbeing” can be deeply challenging and frustrating. Together, we will dismantle the notion of isolation as a symbol of strength.

My private practice focuses on individuals, families, couples and children. Working with children almost always involves the family as well. My approach is psycho-dynamic, yet I understand that it is through self awareness combined with the small decisions we make on a daily basis that change takes place. The past informs the present, but the goal is to create a present that better serves us. A comfortable therapeutic relationship, along with a client's motivation, are crucial for the success of the process. Working with individuals or the complexities of couples and family groups is very satisfying for me. .

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
