I understand that beginning therapy and finding the right therapist can be an overwhelming process. With that in mind, I deeply value the importance of finding the right therapist for you. I recognize that each individual carries a unique set of stories that shape their life. As a result, therapy with me is deeply personal and tailored to your specific needs.


Informed by my own journey and experiences, I am deeply committed to providing support to individuals from diverse cultural backgrounds. I appreciate working with adults, young adults, and emerging professionals who are navigating feelings of otherness and their intersectional identities, with a specialization in Black and Muslim mental health. I am dedicated to creating a nurturing and understanding environment.


Therapy with me offers a compassionate approach tailored to your specific needs, whether you're grappling with relationship dynamics, processing trauma, or seeking guidance for anxiety and depression. When working with me, you can expect to feel supported, understood, and valued, regardless of the identities you carry. I integrate somatic and relational therapy modalities into our sessions, focusing on the mind-body connection and understanding how physical experiences impact emotional well-being.


Together, we'll explore your unique challenges and experiences, fostering meaningful relationships and promoting a holistic understanding of self. If any of this resonates with you, please don't hesitate to reach out! I'm eager to connect with you, address any questions you may have, and ensure that this process feels welcoming and supportive for you.
