Co-founder & Psychotherapist
In working together, you will find that my approach to therapy is collaborative, client-centred, trauma-informed, anti-oppressive/racist & queer positive. I have extensive training in Dialectical Behaviour Therapy & Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, as well as training in Sensorimotor & Somatic Psychotherapies. As a certified applied mindfulness meditation specialist from the University of Toronto, I have facilitated various mindfulness-based therapy programs at Toronto Western Hospital, Southlake Regional Health Centre, and Stevenson Memorial Hospital.
I completed my B.Sc. from the University of Toronto, focusing on Neuroscience and Psychology, and later obtained my Masters of Social Work from the University of Toronto. In addition to my private practice, I am currently working at Toronto Western Hospital as a mental health clinician and continue to be involved in research & community engagement projects that aim to support the mental health & well-being of individuals & families.
My experience combined with my education and training has allowed me to support clients cultivate wellness in a compassionate and non-judgmental space. I have supported individuals and couples with various issues, including, but not limited to: anxiety, depression, grief and loss, trauma, post-traumatic stress, relationship challenges and life transitions, burn out and stress and perfectionism & being a “workaholic.”
I provide faith-based therapy to clients who identify as Muslim and can provide services in English and Arabic.
I am a member of the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers, and of the Ontario Association of Social Workers. As well, I am a Certified Yoga Teacher (CYT ~300 hrs).
