About

The willingness to seek support is a courageous step in acknowledging the strength of our vulnerability. Humans were meant to heal together. It is in relation with one another that we discover the necessary connection and compassion to heal past wounds and navigate the challenging circumstances of an unjust society. Unfortunately many of us are also hurt in relationships and struggle to feel safe with others or even know what safety looks like. Therefore, in our sessions we will work together to build a safe and compassionate environment where we can feel heard and seen as we move through our pain accompanied by another.
As a Palestinian-American and first-generation immigrant, I specialize in working with people of color, immigrants, refugees, and multicultural individuals. I work with adults who have experienced trauma, including childhood abuse/neglect, narcissistic abuse, domestic violence, migration-related trauma, Complex PTSD, and anxiety and depression.
I am a relational therapist and draw from several approaches, including interpersonal neurobiology, attachment theory, narrative therapy, and anti-oppressive practice. I view healing as a process of increasing awareness, understanding, and compassion towards ourselves and cultivating authenticity and strength.
