I identify as a bi-racial, Somali-Norwegian, Muslim, cis woman. I have been serving individuals
and families through various forms of therapy and community work since 2011. Through the years I have gained experience working with a wide range of ages and family make-ups. I have seen the ways in which therapy can be made to feel inaccessible, whether because of busy schedules, money/insurance, misunderstandings about what “therapy” is, or an assumption that “my problems aren’t big enough for that.” My hope is to make healing and personal growth feel accessible for everyone. If you only have time to meet remotely, we will do that. And if “therapy” feels overwhelming to think about, we will find other words that feel right.
"I typically use more solutions-focused approaches, and often incorporate CBT and mindfulness into treatment plans. I come from a narrative framework, and have been trained to provide a few evidenced based treatments (TF-CBT, Complicated Grief Treatment, Attachment
Regulation Competency Therapy)."
