(Pronouns: she/her/hers)

I am a licensed clinical psychologist (CA PSY 31326) with experience in a variety of settings including community mental health, university and college counseling and end-of-life psychotherapy in and outside of the hospital environment.

I completed my doctoral internship at Johns Hopkins University Counseling Center and my post-doctoral fellowship at Princeton University’s Counseling and Psychological Services. Along with my private practice, I am a staff psychologist and clinical supervisor at UCLA’s Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS).

I identify as a cis gender, Muslim, South Asian, able bodied woman. I was born in Apartheid era South Africa and raised between Johannesburg and the unceded territory of the Tongva people, Southern California. I offer services only in English. I practice from a feminist, multicultural , decolonial and relational lens and consider myself to be an advocate for systemic change and liberation of all oppressed people..
