In the busy, hectic and somewhat nonsensical world of today, you can feel lost, confused, or stuck. I want to be there with you as you navigate these frustrating times. My clients are determined to work on the unanswered questions that life has thrown their way. Maybe you feel stuck in relationships – at work or in your personal life. Maybe society has made it incredibly unbearable for you to be you. Or perhaps you are going through a specific challenge that is making you feel helpless. It is in our nature to want to improve, to heal and move forward and upward. We are wired to survive. As Rumi says, what you are seeking, you already are. And you already have all the survival tools that you require to reshape your life the way you want it to be. In our work together, we will identify your goals in your life and in your relationships and work towards achieving them. We will tap into your strengths and together we will look for options that fit best for you.
Change is hard. You don’t have to do it alone. Working with a caring, supportive, and compassionate therapist can help you to examine problems from a new light, identify solutions, and make the changes that are right for you. In our work together, I will get to know who you are, how you got here, and where you would like to go. My job is to be with you and to share the knowledge, experiences, tools and resources that can help you get there. I offer approaches such as narrative therapy, schema therapy, psychodynamic, CBT, and other modalities. As we work together, we will create a treatment plan tailor made for you.
As a new Canadian and a Middle-Eastern woman of colour with experience living under an oppressive radical theocracy, my therapeutic approach is deeply rooted in having empathy towards those who find themselves stuck. We don’t all get to enjoy the privileges of race, wealth, health, or peace. Despite that, therapy can help us look at the narrative of our lives with compassion and empathy for ourselves. I am excited and passionate about helping you to reshape your story and find more peace.
