About

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.
I specialize in gender and sexuality, working through a social justice lens. Among other mental health difficulties, I have worked with people with depression, anxiety, and PTSD. I have experience working through a psychodynamic, trauma-focused, strength-based approach, and have utilized DBT, CBT and ACT throughout my work with clients.
I look forward to becoming a part of your journey!
