I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate (LPCA). I finished my dual-track (clinical mental health - school counseling) CACREP Accredited Master of Arts at the University of New Mexico. I moved to Plano, TX, and got my LPC-A license from the Texas State Board of Examiners of Professional Counselors. Prior to that I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Education from Alexandria University in Egypt.
My experience has provided me with the training and tools needed to uphold the values of the field of Counseling, including honoring the dignity and autonomy of the patients and practicing multicultural humility in my work across a widely heterogenous population. I was able to work with a diverse population (adults, children, adolescents and groups) that present with extensive psychosocial barriers to utilizing behavioral healthcare as well as complex clinical diagnoses such substance use, trauma, depression anxiety, grief, couples and groups, … etc.
I approach therapy from a cognitive-behavioral perspective. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is based on the idea that our thoughts (cognitions), how we feel (emotions), and how we act (behaviors) are all interconnected. Using CBT and other multiple evidence-based treatments such MI, CPT, ACT and SFBT, I aim to help individuals reduce their psychological distress in a non-judgmental empathetic environment and in a journey that is based on warmth respect, and flexibility that facilitate their ability to benefit from treatment.
