About

If life is a journey and you are at a wrong or unfamiliar juncture, I will be a trustworthy guide and companion as you chart your way to your destination. I can help with such roadblocks as depression, anxiety, fear or shame, substance abuse, difficulties in social, romantic, marital or family relationships. Other bumps in the road might involve professional or cultural issues. My promise is to support you consistently and unconditionally. Another promise is that you will (re)discover inner resources with which you can change/enhance any part(s) of your life that you are not satisfied with.
My therapeutic approach is tailored to fit each individual, situation and/or desired outcome. I use an eclectic mix: cognitive-emotive-behavioral, psychodynamic, developmental, gestalt, existential and spiritual modalities--all couched largely in the humanistic tradition. My belief is that we get stronger and wiser by meeting life's challenges.
I work with different ages and cultural backgrounds. Being bi-cultural and multi-lingual, I understand cross-cultural matters--both in the workplace and at home (inter-generational and marital communication). I speak English, Arabic, French, and German. I am intimately familiar with many cultures and religious traditions. I also do transpersonal work.

Sanaa Sharnoubi's Groups

Women in Transition

Members are all going through life transitions. The first and enduring benefit of the group is giving and receiving much needed support. Members come to realize that they are not alone in their efforts to make their lives rich and worthwhile. There is also a psychoeducational component. This includes possible stages in major life changes, what their effects may be on the individual and those close to them, and how to weather such changes on all levels: cognitively, emotionally, and spiritually. Concrete action steps are also woven into the group's task. The group itself becomes a meaningful part of life.

More about this group

Drug issues and family

The group is generally composed of family members of a drug abuser (active or in recovery). It is also open friends, co-workers, etc. This is a psychoeducational group--covering information around drugs themselves (types, dosage, dependence and abuse, psychosocial aspects, interventions, withdrawal and recovery stages). It also covers family dynamics, family systems and intergenerational history. Additionally the group provides members with strong support and validation for their experiences in the context of drug abuse and family. Finally, the group members create a safe environment in which to see the issues clearly and work to resolve them with concrete action steps.

More about this group

Parenting for all ages

The group includes parents as well as other caregivers of children ages 4-18. There is a strong psychoeducational component. Parents are taught what the basic needs of children are (secure attachment, autonomy, identity, relationship building) and what may happen if these are not met. Depending on their age, children will misbehave in different ways--all in an effort to direct attention to their unmet needs. Parents will understand the logic behind their children's apparent misbehavior. The group will also provide a forum for exploring what works to improve not only children's development but also their relationship with parents.
