Working with me one on one:
I work with many different people who are looking for additional support in their lives. Whether it’s symptoms of anxiety or depression, sorting out unhelpful patterns and thoughts, or working through some big changes- I’m here to take that journey with you. Here are a few things I specialize in:
So, lets just be done with anxiety...
- Racing thoughts? Check.
- Trouble sleeping? Check.
- Intrusive and repetitive negative thoughts? Check and check.
But it IS manageable and it doesn’t have to rule your life.
If you struggle with depression you aren’t alone. You aren’t broken. Being depressed does NOT define you (even though sometimes I know it feels like it does). Depression CAN be treated effectively. I have worked with many people of all ages and backgrounds, who have struggled with depression and have been able to make awesome improvements.
Of course, there are many factors involved- and I’m going to tell you a secret- I’m not a miracle worker or a magician. I’m not going to claim that I can make your depression disappear with the wave of a wand, some magic words, or a special product to buy (and you should be cautious of anyone who tells you they can).
But what I can promise is that I will work hard alongside you, as you take the journey towards a life with more joy, meaning and laughter. I’ll bring my experience and education in working with depressed people like you to the table as I help support you as you learn the best ways to manage your feelings and thoughts.
Racial and Multicultural Issues
It’s easy to feel like therapy is set up for white, heteronormative, Western clients- and well… it has been traditionally.
I specialize in working with multicultural issues- specifically those related to Arab Americans. I understand that it can feel daunting to have to not only find a therapist, but then have to try and explain your non traditional family or background. With both lived experience and additional education and skills related to multicultural therapy, I offer my clients a safe, understanding, and nonjudgmental space to work with the issues they bring into therapy.
