Assalamo alaikom and thank you for visiting my website.
My objective here is to provide the most effective tools, inspiration and guidance to help people overcome their difficulties, master their relationships and achieve their personal aspirations by combining my extensive training and experience in clinical psychology with sound Islamic principles.
Alhamdulillah over the past 18 years I have had the privilege of influencing thousands of people through my private practice, publications and TV show. I have worked with people with marriage problems, parenting issues, depression , anxiety, infidelity, addiction – the big one now being porn for both men and women, low self-esteem, even hopelessness & suicidal thoughts.
One of the challenges that our society faces is overcoming the stigma associated with going to a therapist. People think it’s for those who have severe psychological disorders and they think that their problems stem from a lack of faith. The reality is we all need emotional and spiritual guidance. Allah says in the Quran to ask the people of knowledge when you don’t know. It’s not a sign of weak faith to seek help – it is actually a sign of strength.
As a cognitive behavioral therapist I focus on changing your thoughts in order to achieve your desired behavior. I do short term, solution focused therapy which means that I find out your goals in therapy and I help you to achieve them in the shortest period of time.
My approach is a non-judgmental, guided therapy where I actually help you achieve your goals. Many clients complain about going to therapists that only listen and repeat their problems without any guidance. The point of therapy is to get help and guidance. It also needs to be the correct kind of help. Someone who understands your cultural background, your religious beliefs and your morals. Being a practicing Muslim therapist I will give you advice that is in sync with your religious principles and I will encourage you to realign yourself spiritually.
I have seen amazing results when my clients are consistent, receptive and have follow through. Many have made the change in as little as 4 sessions mashAllah. Of course every individual case is different.
There are many benefits to online therapy. It is accessible to everyone around the world so no matter where you are it is available to you , you can get the help you need in the comfort of your home with complete privacy, there is no commute time, it eliminates social stigma associated with getting counseling and there is full confidentiality.
I encourage you to sign up to my mailing list so that you will be the first to know about my upcoming webinars, events and programs insha’Allah.
