As a first-generation Afghan Canadian, I have struggled with balancing cultural values, resulting in my struggle with anxiety, perfectionism, and imposter syndrome. I grew up never feeling like I fit in because I was not Canadian enough and not Afghan enough. Not knowing where I belonged and feeling like the “black sheep” was something that I struggled with constantly as a child. This lived experience has shaped how I approach therapy.
My goal is to support you from an intersectional approach. Seeking therapy can be difficult for many people and taking that first step is something that takes courage. I strive to create a safe space for you to be able to share your stories and your vulnerabilities and get through any painful experiences. Together, we can help build skills to help cope with negative feelings and to develop that resiliency that is hidden inside you.
