I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC 008061).
- I received a Bachelor’s degree from Georgia State University in 2006.
- I have a Masters in Community Counseling from Argosy University in 2010.
- I am trained intensively in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).
- I am a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist (CCH).
I am an American-Muslim, of South-Asian descent and I’m culturally aware. I understand the challenges families and individuals experience when major life transitions (e.g., marriage, divorce, death, relocating, etc.) happen. I’m also able to relate to people of different faiths, ethnicity, race and background.
I enjoy working with adult and adolescent females (ages 13+) who struggle with suicidal ideations/thoughts, self-harm or bodily harm, depression, anxiety, anger, relationship issues and other life or mental health concerns. The interventions I use are based in DBT but I’m eclectic in my approach.
“I absolutely love and enjoy what I do. My ultimate goal is to help the community in ending mental health stigma. Taking care of your mind is as important as taking care of your body. I understand that talking to a random stranger can be scary; however there are times when we need to talk to someone who is going to be nonjudgmental, empathetic and provide the support we need. I work together with my clients in helping them solve their problems, listen to them and live a life they desire.”
