I was born and raised in New York to first generation immigrant parents. I was able to see firsthand how the topic of mental illness has always been stigmatized within these vulnerable communities. I have entered the field as a mental health counselor to shatter the barriers to mental health care and end the stigma within these communities. I believe that growing up in an immigrant family can help me understand you as a person, regardless of race, gender, or ethnicity. My multicultural competency and ability to see different perspectives enables me to meet people of all different backgrounds where they are.
I incorporate a collaborative and psychodynamic approach to psychotherapy, where we work together to understand your concerns and remove the barriers that are preventing you from flourishing. My integrative, therapeutic approach is through a social justice-oriented lens, which helps me provide you with culturally competent treatment. I will be open and nonjudgmental to your experiences and help you create and live a life you find fulfilling. My greatest strength is the ability to empathize and listen to you as the client. We will get to the root of the issue, no matter how challenging it may feel. I will guide you through the barriers in your present, as well as past events that are still holding you back. I believe that our work together can help you understand what has led you to your current circumstances, as well as what changes are possible. I will help monitor your progress toward your goals.
I have received my Bachelor’s in Public Health at SUNY Old Westbury, and also went on to receive my Master’s in Mental Health Counseling at SUNY Old Westbury. My master’s training has provided me with extensive experience helping those with anxiety, depression, substance abuse, trauma, domestic violence, adjustment and life transition issues, multicultural issues and other life situations. My previous experiences have encompassed populations that included the mentally disabled, college students, adolescents and domestic violence victims. I am fluent in English and Persian, with a working knowledge in Urdu.
