Chicago | Clinical Faculty, Adler Community Health Services
As an integrative systemic therapist and social justice advocate, I am committed to training socially responsible practitioners and developing accessible and culturally responsive mental health services for under-resourced communities. For over 15 years I have held clinical, administrative, and training roles in a range of community mental health, primary care, school-based, university, and private practice settings. My clinical faculty role at ACHS spans individual, couple, family, and group therapy; risk assessment and crisis management; community psychoeducation and training; individual and group clinical supervision; didactic teaching; community partnership development and management; and program design, administration, and evaluation.
As a clinician, supervisor, and educator, I approach each person in the context of the relationships and systems in which they are embedded. I strive to cultivate a collaborative learning environment that emphasizes the importance of compassion, curiosity, self-awareness, humility, and respect for diversity. I specialize in socially responsible systemic therapy with a focus on trauma-informed, strength-based, data-informed practice. My clinical interests are in areas of couple therapy, divorce and post-divorce issues, intergenerational conflict, life stage transitions, multicultural and immigration issues, spirituality, and women’s issues. I am certified in integrative primary care behavioral health and am a trained facilitator of the restorative justice practice of peacemaking circles. Outside of Adler, I maintain a private practice specialized in serving Muslim and South Asian women and couples.
