I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC). After completing my undergraduate studies in Psychology and Biology, I earned a Master of Arts degree in Mental Health Counseling from Brooklyn College of the City University of New York, graduating summa cum laude.

Since 2009, I have used my clinical psychological training as well as Islamic principles based on the Qur’an and Sunnah to inspire my clients to achieve their full potential. I provide individual, marriage, family, and group therapy to clients dealing with a wide range of concerns and diagnoses. Having worked with clients of all ages, ethnicities, and religions, I provide a non-judgmental environment to allow my clients to feel at ease.

I strive to be a compassionate, empowering, and caring clinician. I have worked with survivors of trauma and abuse as well as clients who experience anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, self-esteem and self-harming concerns, drug abuse, marital and familial issues, grief, and loss. When working with Muslim clients, I often incorporate Islamic principles and spirituality including the Quran and ahadith in order to inspire my clients to utilize their relationship with Allah as a component in their journey toward healing.

My academic activities include teaching about the intersection of Islam with psychology and counseling at Mishkah University and publishing as a Research Fellow at Yaqeen Institute where I research issues related to doubt and faith.
