"I am committed to guiding your journey towards healing and reaching your individual potential using self-awareness, compassion, and expert clinical skills."
I am a US-trained psychologist with extensive experience working with individuals suffering from grief and loss, trauma, illness adjustment, disability, caregiver burnout, and major depression.
I was driven to become a clinical social counsellor by an early fascination with human experiences of thought and emotion. During my studies, I worked with juvenile delinquent girls, providing individual and group treatment for self-esteem and self-harming issues. Moving forward, I spent time researching the effects of social exclusion and depression amongst Muslim adults.
I have also worked in collaboration with national healthcare quality improvement organisations in the US towards implementing programmes that better meet the needs of individuals with psychiatric problems; this has included educating other healthcare professionals on best practices surrounding clinical services.
I believe that it takes great strength to seek support for any psychological or emotional issue – and I have tremendous respect for anyone who has the strength to do so.
