Counseling Psychology PhD Program at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana
I approach counseling using interpersonal and person-centered approaches within a feminist framework. My goal is to create a safe and collaborative space where clients can discover their strengths and learn how to utilize those strengths to create meaningful change. My clinical interests include multicultural issues, identity concerns, body image concerns, and mood disorders.
I have a strong passion for advocating for marginalized groups within my personal and professional life. I have an interest in working with and on behalf of the LGBTQ+ community. I am also interested in raising awareness on issues faced by racial and ethnic minorities in the U.S., particularly immigrant and refugee communities from the Middle East. I feel strongly about the notion that minority identities should be uplifted, both inside and outside of the therapy room, and utilized as sources of resilience.
