Licensed Clinical Psychologist
Hello and welcome to my online practice. I am a US licensed clinical psychologist and I provide online individual psychotherapy in Arabic and English to adults aged 22+ located around the world.
Since the quality of the therapeutic relationship between client and therapist is one of the most important predictors of having a meaningful therapy, I share with you below a bit about how my style as a therapist may feel to you and what it may be like for us to be in the room together.
I see the therapy I offer as a balance of contrasts;
On the one hand, my therapeutic style is sensitive, warm, holding, and nurturing, while also being interactive, direct, and able to -gently- challenge you to change and grow.
I was also a university professor and researcher for several years. I offer therapy that is thoughtful, analytic, nuanced, and anchored in a critical understanding of psychology and social science. At the same time, my approach is down to earth, intuitive, deeply heartfelt, and sprinkled with a little humor.
Through my extensive professional training and journey of self work, I seek to hold a therapeutic space that is grounded and wise, while remaining curious, humble, and open to correction.
Relational and depth therapy can offer us a space where we can discover and acknowledge previously disavowed parts of ourselves… have the space to experience and express a fuller range of emotions…allow ourselves to imagine, play, and explore with increasing freedom…figure out how to cultivate connections that feel intimate and fulfilling…experience the healing effect of a genuine therapeutic relationship…and work through the painful parts of the past to better understand patterns of the present.
