Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Psychotherapy & Consulting in Beirut, Lebanon

Welcome!

I’m a US licensed clinical psychologist based in Beirut Lebanon.  I provide individual psychotherapy in Arabic and/or English to adults struggling with various concerns.

My style of therapy is warm, supportive, interactive, and sprinkled with a little humor.  At the same time I gently challenge clients to develop and grow in the directions that they seek.

I seek to hold a space for my clients that feels empathic, respectful, encouraging of their autonomy and choice, and free from judgment. In that space, we reflect together on their lives, and understand and work through the painful parts.

I have experience helping people with various kinds of emotional pain and difficulties relating to depression, anxiety, trauma, stress, grief, family and relationship issues, etc.  At the same time, therapy is not only for mental health problems, but can also be a very helpful space for developing clarity, connectedness, meaning, and an overall sense of wholeness in our lives. 

I have an integrative approach to psychotherapy, whereby I interweave elements from various psychological perspectives including: relational, psychodynamic, trauma, and cognitive behavioral. 

My approach to therapy emphasizes depth, insight, understanding patterns past and present, and the importance of emotional experiencing and human relationships.

I also provide supervision and consultation to other psychotherapists.
