هل تشعر بالإرهاق من أدوار الحياة وتوقعاتها؟ هل تشعر باليأس نتيجة للتوتر والقلق و لا يمكن السيطرة عليها؟ ربما تشعر بالضياع أو العزلة ، مما يجعلك غير متأكد من المكان الذي تنتمي إليه في المجتمع. أنا هنا لمساعدتك في العثور على مكانك ، والشعور بالاتصال ، واستعادة السيطرة على عقلك وجسمك.

أقدم علاجًا مخصصًا بشكل خاص لاحتياجات موكلي وشخصيته وكفاحه. أعتبر العلاج بمثابة تدخل تعاوني واستباقي حيث سأقوم بالتدريس والتعلم من المريض. بالإضافة إلى ذلك ، أشجع المريض على ممارسة مهارات وتقنيات جديدة داخل وخارج غرفة العلاج.

إن توفير مساحة آمنة ، مليئة بالتعاطف وعدم الحكم ، هو أساس عملي في العلاج. أهدف إلى تمكين المريض من خلال الكشف عن نقاط القوة والمرونة التي سنبني عليها فردًا أكثر ثقة وحيوية. أعتقد أننا جميعًا نتحمل أوقاتًا صعبة ، وبالتالي لدينا الأدوات البيولوجية والنفسية اللازمة للبقاء والنمو.

Have you been feeling overwhelmed by life's roles and expectations? Have you been feeling hopeless as a result of unmanageable stress and anxiety? Perhaps you feel lost or isolated leaving you unsure of where you belong in society. I am here to help you find your place, feel connected, and reclaim control of your mind and body.

I offer therapy that is specifically tailored to my client's needs, personality, and struggles. I view therapy as a collaborative and proactive intervention where I will be teaching and learning from my clients. Additionally, I encourage clients to practice new skills and techniques in-and-out of the therapy room.

Providing a safe space, filled with empathy and non-judgment, is my foundation in therapy. I aim to empower my clients by uncovering their strengths and resilience on which we will build a more confident and vivid individual. I believe that we all endure difficult times and therefore have the biological and psychological tools in place to survive and thrive.
