It’s tough when you or your relationship feel broken. I’m here to collaborate with you and figure out how to connect those pieces back together so that you feel stronger. It is natural to start questioning yourself and not feel accepted. You may start getting stressed, feeling frustrated, unhappy, and blame yourself/others because there are needs that do not feel met. There can be nagging worries you may have that are preventing you from living your full life. And if we allow ourselves to dig deeper, you may feel invisible, a burden or that maybe you don't deserve better...

Sometimes it can be really challenging to make time for ourselves and for our mental health. For some of us, it's even more difficult when our identities and culture held no space for our feelings or emotions. We may have had to put up with crossed boundaries, invalidated feelings, unrealistic expectations, and conditional love that depended on how much we have accomplished. Those difficult and maybe even traumatic experiences that we, and our families, have lived through may have been written off as "this is just how things are." Although we may want to rest and pause, we instead might begin to feel shame or guilt for doing so.

Being a Muslim American and a daughter of Lebanese immigrants, I am very passionate about serving the community and making mental health services more accessible and catered towards diverse cultural backgrounds. The way I view mental health struggles is via relationships: our relationships with ourselves, our families, our social circles, our cultural worlds, and our contexts. All these relationships have an impact on the stories we tell about ourselves and the identities we create from them, all of which impact our well-being.

Let’s be honest. Being stuck in anxiety, fear, depression, and despair is very discouraging and frustrating. It feels awful, it limits you, makes you feel hopeless, and just creates suffering and conflict in your life. So, what can we do about it? We can ignore it and hope it goes away, read a bunch of self-help books, or maybe try that 5-step plan to happiness we read about late last night. Some of these things might work but sometimes we just need help from a caring therapist who really understands you and can help guide you to a healthier and happier you. I would be honored to help you live the life you've always imagined.

Sometimes we all just need a compassionate, caring person to listen and provide informed and appropriate feedback and guidance. I believe that 90% of therapy's effectiveness is in choosing the right person. You either "click" with your therapist, or you don't. If you find a good match, you are half-way there! Please call me for a free telephone consultation, so we can discuss your concerns to see if I am a good fit for your particular needs. I look forward to your call.

I believe that the goal of "happiness" we are all striving for, is not that of elation, but inner peace. Without an understanding of this subtle difference, many of us can find ourselves on a slightly different path than we have intended. Much of my work focuses on helping my clients find acceptance in themselves in order to listen to their own voices and create a life that is fulfilling. I believe that each of my clients are the experts in their own lives. In that way, our sessions become a joint process--rather than an "expert/patient" experience.

Do you feel like you are “too sensitive for the world around you?” Are you fine one moment and then overwhelmed with emotions the next? Maybe you’re in a “good” relationship, but can’t stop wondering whether it’s right for you. It can feel scary and lonely when it seems like your life is going well on the surface, but underneath there is a different reality. Many of my clients live with trauma, anxiety, extreme stress levels, and depression. They manage to expertly float through life finding “success” while feeling empty and depleted. The good news is that the skills that have helped you come this far are already in place.

As a therapist, my goal is to provide the most effective treatment for individuals with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Hoarding, Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD), Trichotillomania (Hair Pulling), and Excoriation (Dermatillomania - Skin Picking). I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), specifically Exposure & Response Prevention to help those suffering with OCD, Hoarding, BDD, and Habit Reversal Therapy to help those with pulling, picking, and Tics, as these evidence based treatments have proven to be the most effective. I believe with the right tools and support, people can learn to address these struggles and thrive.

I offer clients a supportive, caring environment to identify solutions for growth and well-being. Together we can identify specific problems and create common sense strategies that have high probabilities of success. The areas often discussed in therapy include relationships, substance abuse, career frustrations, illness and life transitions, and one's own experience of psychological symptoms, most commonly anxiety and depression. By approaching psychotherapy through a person-centered, solution-focused, skills based perspective, I can assist individuals from diverse backgrounds.

What type of San Diego mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in San Diego?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
