I have over 10 years of experience working with children, adolescents, families, and adults. I received my Bachelors degree in Psychology at Michigan State University and my Masters in Psychology at Wayne State University.


I provide an eclectic style of therapy with strong emphasis on a partnership with my clients. I am trained in CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), DBT (Dialectic Behavioral Therapy), Trauma-informed, Narrative, Mindfulness, Person Centered, and Motivational Interviewing. I have extensive experience treating Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, and ADHD.


I value the importance of personal worldview and culture in therapy. I am a first-generation immigrant that grew up in Michigan with Pakistani, Muslim, and American values. Being understood from your personal worldview and culture is an important part of our therapeutic journey.
