Throughout my own upbringing as the eldest daughter of immigrant parents from the Middle East, I have learned to appreciate the difficulty in assimilating two cultural dynamics together. I have experience working with immigrants from various regions as well as other underrepresented groups ranging in age from adolescents to adults. I believe that the client is the expert in their own lives, and when working with disadvantaged communities, it is necessary to recognize the systemic issues they may face in order to be an advocate and provide fully encompassing care while also allowing them to maintain a sense of autonomy.

I’m honored to help others along their path of self-discovery and change. Having worked in the field for 15 years, I’ve gained a wealth of information and experience working with those with chronic medical concerns, grief and loss, trauma, and addictions (active and in recovery). I’ve learned that a strength of mine is supporting others with anxiety, depression, trauma, life stressors and transitions, and relationship concerns. I'll work with you to identify your goals and develop a plan that will support, maintain, and continue positive changes, even after our work is completed.

Everyone experiences times when difficulties in love and work or feelings of sadness and anxiety are too difficult to navigate alone. Together, we will explore what is causing you to feel stuck, depressed or alienated in your life. Therapy is a way to uncover the hidden barriers and self-defeating patterns that are preventing you from creating the change you want. It can be daunting to begin therapy, but the process will lead to a life lived with greater satisfaction and meaning.

Although beginning therapy and delving deeper into the inner workings of your life can initially be fearful, it is a courageous act and an opportunity for growth and a new understanding of who you are. I believe that the foundation of any effective therapeutic work is a genuine therapeutic relationship based on trust, honesty, and empathy. I value creating a non-judgmental environment where you feel seen, accepted, and understood and can safely explore difficult emotions and relational patterns that may have previously felt too overwhelming to embark on alone.

Feelings of depression and anxiety, or family and work conflicts can become overwhelming. Talking about your thoughts, feelings, dreams and experiences during the therapy hour helps relieve emotional suffering and increases your capacity to tolerate and manage difficult feelings such as anger, panic, grief and a sense of isolation.

The search for a therapist is never easy and I believe fit and comfort are essential in providing effective therapy. I strive to make coming to therapy a comfortable experience and to provide a safe space. I work with people wanting to reduce their anxiety and depression to build skills, gain insight, and increase self-awareness. I find that life transitions, big or small, can have a resounding effect on a person’s well being. Finding balance and building on personal strengths in order to achieve identified goals becomes important in these moments, as well understanding the importance of self-confidence. I strive to work with clients to find themselves and their individual nature that can help them through whatever they may face.

My approach to therapy is empathic, strength-based and interactive. I believe that a safe, trusting therapeutic relationship while empowering the client is imperative for change. I have been providing therapy since 2000 for adults, couples, and children. My main approach to therapy is to utilize cognitive behavioral theory (CBT) in order to process thoughts, feelings, and beliefs that contribute to distorted thinking and behavior, therefore affecting emotional well-being. The goal is to challenge and reframe so that the client achieves their personal goals, to cope with life transitions and obstacles, and improve mental health

Are you on a path to parenthood or adjusting to life while pregnant or post-partum? Maybe you've had a pregnancy loss or things haven't gone the way you expected along the way. Are IVF, ART, or TFMR part of your story? Perhaps you have experienced grief connected to being a parent or with your own parents. You may be navigating your journey alone or with a chosen family. Pregnant people and their non-birthing partners need support during these important life changes. If any of this resonates with you, time and space to talk about it can be helpful. From there, changes and next steps on your path may seem more attainable.

Hello there! I would love to hear from you about what's going on, and I think I can help. I am a licensed clinical professional counselor specializing in child, adolescent, adult, family, and couples psychotherapy. I provide treatment for psychological and emotional issues using an integrative Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) approach combined with a psychodynamic perspective. During crisis, it is important for my clients to have the skills to gracefully endure their suffering (the DBT component)--all the while keeping in mind the harder to see big picture where deeper issues occur at an unconscious level (the psychodynamic component).

What type of Chicago 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Chicago?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
