I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC). I have been working in the mental health field for the past 8 years. I am a firm believer that, with the right guidance, each individual is capable of reaching their potential and actualizing their best self. I am known for my empathic approach and insightful feedback. Some of the modalities I use are cognitive behavioral therapy, brainspotting, SEFT, client-centered approach, strength-based, and play-therapy. I also use a culturally responsive approach to incorporate the client's cultural background and uniqueness.
My areas of focus are trauma with a special emphasis on intergenerational and racial trauma, women’s issues, identity, SPMI (severe and persistent mental illness), and the unique challenges that come with being a refugee or an immigrant. I also speak Arabic and Somali.
I am deeply committed to serving marginalized and underserved communities while striving to provide exceptional therapeutic services. I am always honored when I am entrusted to be part of your healing journey and I look forward to serving you.
