My Ideal Client

You might be feeling more sad, angry, worried, or lonely than usual. If you are Black, Indigenous, a person of color, queer, trans, gender expansive, or live with a disability, you may be tired of being strong. You may notice certain spaces where you don’t feel comfortable being your full self. Your child may be struggling in school or adjusting to a big family change or loss. You may be frustrated with behavior and discipline and wish for a closer bond with your child. I'm here for you!

My Background and Approach

I believe each client has the capacity for healing and self-actualization. I bring genuine empathy, acceptance, curiosity, and hope into my relationship with clients so they may feel understood, valued, and empowered to move towards growth at every point in the lifespan. I celebrate my clients’ unique culture, wisdom, strengths, and identities. I collaborate with clients to explore how systems of power and oppression impact their well-being. I support clients in making meaning in their lives and relationships. I provide individual counseling, play therapy, and child-parent relationship therapy. I also provide group therapy for women of color. My approach is informed by Existential-Humanism, feminism, and multiculturalism. I hold a master’s degree in Clinical Rehabilitation Counseling from Portland State University with a focus in chronic illness and disability.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

​I am a passionate advocate and community leader. I am the founding President of the Oregon Association for Multicultural Counseling and Development, serve as the Secretary of the Oregon Counseling Association, and served on the American Counseling Association Anti-Racism Taskforce in 2020. I am a woman of color, proud daughter of Muslim immigrants, and a first-generation college student. Schedule a free 20-minute video consultation so we can get to know one another and find out if we are a good fit! I am currently accepting new private pay clients and do not accept insurance at this time. I have a waitlist for sliding-scale clients.

Techniques I Use

Specialties

  • Play Therapy  External link

    Play is the language of childhood. Young children respond to stress and change differently than adults do, and they communicate differently, too. As a play therapist, I provide a safe environment where children can express their emotions, learn coping skills, develop self-control, and build self-esteem in a way that comes naturally to them. I love working with children, and would be honored to help support your family!

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) External link

    Wellness naturally arises when we experience empathy, acceptance, curiosity, and hope in relationships. I aim to bring these qualities to our therapeutic relationship, and support you in creating this kind of relationship with the important people in your life. Together we will explore your thoughts, feelings, experiences, & identities and integrate mindfulness skills into our sessions so you feel free to live a meaningful life aligned with your values and inner wisdom.

Issues I Treat

Specialties

  • Child or Adolescent Issues External link

    I love supporting parents because I know they are the most important people in their child's life. Child-Parent Relationship Therapy is an effective way to reduce behavioral, emotional, and social concerns in children age 3-10 and it decreases parental stress! When we work together, I will help you strengthen your bond with your child, teach you developmentally-appropriate skills to make playtime more meaningful and discipline more effective, and provide you with emotional support along the way.

  • Racial Identity External link

    If you are Black, Indigenous, a person of color, queer, trans, gender expansive, or live with a disability, you may be tired of being strong. You may notice certain spaces and people where you don’t feel comfortable being your full self. ​In therapy you can feel understood, valued, and empowered to heal and grow. In therapy you can explore and celebrate your culture, your wisdom, your strengths, and your identities.
