It's hard to find a Therapist with a similar lived experience especially when you have felt different most of your life. There is so much pressure that is placed to have it all together that it can feel really lonely, overwhelming, and scary. It is even harder when you try to navigate environments and relationships only to be left feeling like you don't belong or even told you are “too sensitive”. You are a giver to so many but often feel like you get so little in return and that you must be doing something wrong. That can be incredibly painful when you just want to feel confident and be heard. I can listen.
Coming from an Arab background with generalized anxiety, I know what it is like to feel "different" and to thrive in a fast paced world. Together, we can help you let go of relationships, beliefs, and coping skills that keep you feeling "stuck". I specialize in helping people "quiet" the mind, gain confidence, and learn to "trust their gut".
I would like to provide you a safe space to serve your needs in an empathic way. I use evidence based practices such as CBT/DBT, exploring your unconscious desires, and Culturally Informed EMDR practices (treatment for trauma) to help you make a change. It is important for me that you feel supported, validated, and that there is someone that hears you!
