English and Arabic
I am a licensed clinical social worker with significant experience working with ethnically and culturally diverse populations.
I like working with couples from various backgrounds to create and maintain safe, secure and healthy partnership. I have spent the past nineteen years working in a pediatric center with children and their families. In that time I have developed skills in adjustment to illness, grief and loss, anxiety, depression, life transition and family relations issues.
Additionally, I worked internationally and have acquired training from the University of Washington in working with culturally diverse populations. My expertise, although applicable to other cultures, is particularly relevant to working with Arab American individuals and families and professionals working with Arab American individuals. I am bilingual and can use my Arabic language competency to meet the needs of that population.
My style of counseling is interactive, engaging and supportive. I incorporates multiple intervention modalities to personalize client experience and growth. My system’s training and therapeutic approach focuses on providing support with helpful and practical feedback to build on clouple’s strengths to attain personal growth they identify and commit to accomplish.
