My Therapy Style

I have a down-to-earth, warm, and compassionate style in sessions. I consider it a great privilege to be part of someone's healing. be invited into some of people's most difficult moments, and create a space where they are free to be wholly human. I provide trauma-informed, Strength-based, culturally competent, and socially conscious therapy through a social justice framework. I believe the personal is political, and therefore, believe that therapy is inherently apolitical. I have experience working in both a school-based and private practice setting and have worked with adolescents, adults, and couples.

Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I recognized that seeking therapy can have stigmas attached to it among some marginalized and minority communities that might feel unheard or misunderstood by therapists who might not fully understand their values, experiences, or background. I'm committed to breaking through these stigmas and barriers coming from these communities myself as a Muslim and child of immigrants. I aim to bridge the gap I see in representation in the mental health field among these communities.

What are your interests outside of work?

I enjoy being in nature, spending time with friends and family, reading, poetry, and watching stand-up comedy.

What is one thing you do daily that supports your well-being?

I take time to rest and decompress daily and like to practice gratitude journaling.

How do you recharge?

I like to recharge by going on a long walk or being in nature.
