My aim in therapy is to help people reach their full potential in life. I do this through developing a strong relationship with those I work with. Through this working relationship, it is my goal to assist individuals in breaking free of past conditioning through self-discovery and self-awareness. I help individuals, discover their strengths, make better choices, and transition from their internal critical conversation to an accepting and nurturing voice of confidence and love.

Seeking out therapy can feel intimidating, especially if you are often misunderstood, underrepresented, and encounter threats to your wellbeing due to intersecting forms of oppression. That’s why I aim to create a safe and validating therapeutic space that invites you to bring all aspects of your lived experiences without fear of judgment or ignorance. As the firstborn daughter of Arab and South Asian immigrants, I truly believe that clients deserve therapists who have prior understanding of their cultural backgrounds, the impact of sociopolitical factors, and their vulnerabilities to oppressive systems.

I believe that there is nothing more important to your well-being than the health of your intimate relationships, including the one with yourself! I’m passionate about working with couples, individuals, and other relationships to explore your connection with yourself, your body, your partner(s), and the larger societal systems that influence how you behave and think about intimacy. Together, we have the opportunity to challenge dominant narratives about what sex and relationships "should" look like to embrace your unique perspectives and desires so that you can live your most fulfilling life.

As a psychotherapist, I recognize the intersectionality of the identities that we hold and its impact on how we move through the world. My work is rooted in affirming the experiences of individuals who identify as queer, transgender/GNC, sex workers, non-monogamous/polyamorous, and disabled. Body neutrality, Health At Every Size (HAES), and sex positivity are core values of my clinical practice. I specialize in working with folks who have experienced trauma, depression, and anxiety, with a focus on religious and sexual trauma; as well as individuals exploring their gender identity and sexuality.

Coming to seek therapy is often a difficult experience for many individuals of diverse backgrounds due to cultural stigmas and stereotypes around mental health. Trying to then find the "right" therapist can feel impossible whether it's your first time looking, or even your third, fourth, or fifth time after another not-so-great encounter. I believe that a safe therapeutic space can open up many doors for minority populations seeking to better understand and cope with their mental health when approached with multicultural and feminist perspectives, which could also allow for empathic bonding that is often unavailable in other spaces.

I encourage them to become curious about their thoughts, feelings & behaviors where shame has often kept them stuck. I provide therapy for adolescents & adults with a wide range of problems related to current life changes or longstanding issues. I will also work together with my patients to determine the underlying causes of emotional issues in order to help them cope more effectively with similar problems as they arise in the future.
