“I will feel better with time” is a myth we often hear. Healing is a process that starts when we acknowledge and face how we feel.
I’m a licensed clinical psychologist. I was equally interested in learning psychoanalysis and Cognitive-behavioral Therapy (CBT) . It led me to adopt an eclectic approach in therapy which allows me to adapt to every patient based on his specific needs. I later continued my training into Rational Behavioral, Emotional Therapy (REBT, CCBT, UK), and schema therapy (ISST).
I am currently working as a clinical psychologist at my private practice and bellevue medical center at the behavioral department for patients suffering from addictions, psychosis, personality disorders, major depressive episodes and other disorders. I discovered a growing interest in working with patients struggling with self-esteem, attachment/relationship difficulties, anger management, anxiety, depression, loss, identity crisis, and trauma. Also, my training and work experience led me to research more on religious coping and mental health in the middle east to understand better and address this population. For many people religion is a strength that can ease their struggles. However, it may be a source of difficulty for others that needs to be addressed. It’s my life purpose and passion to assist individuals and guide them on their inner journey towards mental well-being.
