Credentials and Certifications:
Social Worker, Licensed Clinical (LCSW)

I am a licensed clinical social worker. My work experience is diverse and extensive with a focus on working with families from various ethnic backgrounds. I have spent the past fifteen years working in a pediatric transplant 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. Also, I worked internationally and have acquired training from the University of Washington in working with culturally diverse populations, Bio Medical Ethics and more recently, Divorce Mediation. 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 practice and philosophy is influenced by the believe that our present is highly influenced by our past experiences, therefore understanding our life experiences and taking the responsibility to change our present is the ultimate goal in therapy. I use systematic, cognitive and behavioral modification approach to understanding current concerns and encouraging change. My style is engaging, dynamic, direct and collaborative. In my experience, the best outcome is accomplished when direct; trusting and honest relationship is developed. Your commitment to making an effort to change despite the challenges will always be valued and respected.
