For 7 years, I have had the privilege to work with clients dealing with a variety of struggles like depression, anxiety, relationship issues, domestic/sexual violence, trauma, grief, and loss. I work with children, adolescents, and adults through individual and group settings across all faiths including Islam, Christianity, Judaism, and Hinduism. I utilize a combination of cognitive-behavioral (CBT) and psychoanalytic approaches. I believe people have the power to change, and I am merely a key to help provide clarity, process moments and offer guidance. This is your time and together we can be a great team in working towards your success!
I help clients understand how thoughts and feelings can influence their choices, and identify emotional and behavioral challenges to establish goals that will lead to change. Through emotional healing and mindful choices, you can find meaning and power to rise and be your best!
Beyond therapy, I serve as an advisory council member for Aid to Victims of Domestic Abuse and Olive Branch Muslim Family Services. Additionally, I am a peer reviewer for the Journal of Muslim Mental Health, and a contributing author for SEEMA, a mental health advocacy group. Helping you is my passion, and I encourage you to find the strength within!
Super easy to talk to and not once did she come off as condescending or as if she was judging me. Very important imo.
I was intimidated by the whole experience at first. It was unnerving having to tell a stranger about my darkest thoughts, but when I walked into her office.... it just felt peaceful. It was easy and it was natural. Thank you Mrs. Sara for helping me through a difficult time in my life.
I communicate better with my Husband and I am now aware of finding the bright side of things. Acknowledging my feelings and moving on. I am very satisfied with my therapist and would recommend her to others.
Getting started is easy! Registration forms are emailed to you. Simply, bring the completed forms to your first appointment. Instead of spending 15-20 minutes going through paperwork, we can get it done in 5-10 minutes, and the rest of the time is spent talking about you!
