Life can feel like an emotional rollercoaster, filled with ups and downs that leave us feeling lost or overwhelmed. If you struggle with difficult emotions like anxiety, sadness, or stress, know that you're not alone. In therapy, I offer a warm and welcoming space where you can share your story without fear of judgment. I understand that reaching out for help can be daunting, but know that you're taking a courageous step toward healing and growth. Together, we'll embark on a journey of self-discovery and healing, where your feelings are honored and your experiences are met with empathy.
My approach to therapy is rooted in compassion and understanding. I incorporate mindfulness, interpersonal techniques, and stress management to enhance your quality of life. Raised Muslim, I empathize with cultural barriers to mental health and draw from that to help you feel empowered and comfortable through this process.
Drawing from diverse perspectives and client-centered methods, I'm mindful of societal influences on your life. My practice embraces liberation on issues of gender, sexuality, race, culture, and more, fostering a safe and inclusive space for your journey. I work with adults and adolescents particularly those of BIPOC and marginalized communities.
