Strengths and areas of emphasis include: An eclectic approach working with individuals, adolescents, and couples; clients involved in creative pursuits/endeavors/careers; an archetypal/alchemical approach; dreams; symbols; active imagination; meaning-focused work; depression; trauma; anxiety; relational issues; systemic and psychodynamic lenses with which to view the work.
I look forward to working with people interested in examining their past, present and future in hopes of finding greater meaning in, and understating of, all three of those aspects of their lives. Therapy can be scary, and is not without its risks, but I will provide a safe and non-judgmental container for the process. My passion is helping people interested in the examined life, and I bring much experience, both clinical and life experience, to this shared journey ahead.

In therapy, I often utilize a variety of practices depending your needs including: Individual Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic Approach, Systems Theory, Attachment Theory, Mindfulness, Art and Play Therapy.
First and foremost, congratulations for taking the first step of taking care of your needs! Starting that first step can be very daunting and to be here at this very moment, I want to take a moment to celebrate YOU. I believe strongly that in order to become the main characters of our lives—authentic to who we are and who we want to become— we have to start by allowing ourselves to explore and reflect on our current journey and if we are where we want to be. Allowing ourselves that vulnerability in self exploration, in understanding why we do what we do, is one that leads to self improvement and discovery.

My work is informed by cognitive, psychodynamic , existential, and family dynamic principles.
My own healing journey began many years ago. I know the healing power of having a trusted guide and support person. I know the power of feeling truly seen and understood by a compassionate other. In my own life, I have benefitted greatly from such an experience. As a therapist, I endeavor to provide these things to my clients. I work to provide a safe space where my clients can express their worst fears and deepest hopes, without fear of judgement or criticism. I work to understand each person's unique story and experience. Together, we can work to find a way out of your suffering.

I use modern attachment theory paired with mindfulness and compassion approaches, and I will often utilize tools from a wider variety of therapeutic approaches including CBT, DBT, solution focused psychotherapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy, and others to ensure the work we do together is a beneficial as it can be.
Maybe you're suffering deeply with something that's been with you since you were a child or difficulties that have come up just recently. Perhaps you're not sure what's wrong, but things just don't seem quite right in your life. Considering psychotherapy is brave and a sign of your potential to heal and grow. I work in partnership with my clients to help them explore what's going on in their lives, how they're thinking and feeling about those things, and take steps to change them.

I utilize a trauma-informed approach and integrate Cognitive Behavioral, Somatic, Mindfulness, Emotionally Focused, Psychodynamic and Experiential therapies.
I believe the connection you have with your therapist is essential to having a positive experience in therapy. People seek therapy for many reasons. You notice feeling sad, stressed, worried or overwhelmed; you experienced a traumatic event or a great loss; you are trying to change certain patterns in your life; you want more fulfilling relationships. Whether I am working with individuals, couples or families, I am empathic, collaborative, and provide suggestions and feedback in a safe, respectful and supportive environment.

I like to use psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral therapy approaches to therapy to set people free from the emotional chains of the past.
My goal in treatment is to provide tools and help guide people into healing from any wounds that may hinder them from fully walking in the freedom. I am committed to helping people obtain a healthy thought life and lifestyle by being renewed in the mind, becoming transformed and being set free on all levels so they may further pursue life goals and maintain healthy relationships without the hindrance of emotional burdens from the past. I am a born again Christian and I love integrating faith and spirituality in the emotional healing process.

Additionally, I draw from Family Systems, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or Psychodynamic Therapy to adequately address my client’s needs.
Do you desire to move forward but don’t understand what may be holding you back? Are you seeking a supportive partner in your healing process? What is important to you when working with a therapist? I follow the notion that the relationship is one of the most important aspects of the healing process and utilize it as one of the main tools in the work with my clients. Whether it is processing trauma, exploring anxiety or depression, addressing relationship issues, or getting through a transitional phase of life, among many other reasons, sometimes therapy with a strong therapeutic relationship as a foundation can make a difference.

It is very important to me that you get the results you are looking for in therapy and that your experience is a positive one. I am sensitive, caring and dedicated to our work together.

My approach to therapy is based out of Psychodynamic and Social Learning theories as well as evidence-based approaches.
Anxiety, depressive feelings, afraid of where the future may lead, or trying to figure out how to get over initial humps are common, but may also feel emotionally and physically draining. Therapy should be thoughtful, supportive, and provide a sense of safety for you to be yourself. This is the environment I look to create so that you can gain a deeper sense of self, and explore old thinking patterns and behaviors that may be preventing you from moving forward. I can offer a fresh perspective to help you re-frame those negative thoughts in a more productive direction.

I am influenced by ego-psychology, analytical psychology, systems, psychodynamic , and attachment theories, as well as holistic, ancestral, and indigenous wellness rituals from around the world.
My practice is rooted in the strengths-based perspective, and informed by the interconnectedness of all things. I recognize the relationship between mind, body, and spirit (or soul), and the complexity of being an individual influenced by multiple, dynamic systems. Therapy is a collaboration between client and therapist, as we are all practitioners and students in our own rights. We all have within us an innate wisdom and knowing to share and to affect positive change.

I am trained in psychodynamic , object relations and family systems theory.
Are you struggling in relationships or finding it hard to connect to others? Do you feel "stuck" or have a hard time letting go of negative thoughts? Do you repeat the same behavior/relationship patterns despite wanting to change? Childhood trauma, dysfunctional family systems, grief/loss and many other factors impact how a person experiences the world. If you are looking to heal from trauma, develop healthy boundaries, improve self-esteem and feel more connected to yourself and others, I can help.

I have experience working through a psychodynamic , trauma-focused, strength-based approach, and have utilized DBT, CBT and ACT throughout my work with clients.
As a queer Black Arab immigrant, I recognize the importance of how social identities can have a great impact on someone's mental health. Even navigating the mental health system can be exhausting and at times disappointing. In my practice, I aim to provide a safe space for people who often struggle to find one due to systemic and social injustices. I assist people in the healing of their trauma and processing difficult experiences as they navigate living in a society that is in itself in need of healing. I am passionate about my work and love being present with my clients through their journey of healing and self-discovery.

Although my core orientation is psychodynamic (relational), my practice manifests as integrative.
Life demands so much from us on a daily basis. Our bosses want more of our time, our partners are slow to show love but quick to start an argument, and our families always seem to ask for more. Therapy is your space to escape from these demands, to take a breath and realign with who you truly are. I am passionate about helping clients illuminate ways they may enhance their relationships, embrace their true self, and gain the self-confidence needed to thrive in life.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
