I am a US-trained, doctoral-level Clinical Neuropsychologist, practicing in Dubai, UAE. My services are threefold and include assessments, psychotherapeutic interventions, and developmental support.
In psychotherapy, I use a patient-specific and culturally-sensitive integration of psychodynamic, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), mindfulness, attachment, and trauma-informed approaches. The support I offer in psychotherapy is both to repair current difficulties and prevent future problems, all of which is based on an understanding of the person, their circumstances, and what influences their experiences. My patients value the safe space I provide to help them reflect on their experiences and work through their problems. Through insight-building conversations, feeling through or regulating emotions, and/or identifying coping skills, my clients are able to reestablish a sense of control, capability, and connection with themselves, their values, emotions, thoughts, behaviors, and relationships. When appropriate, I also offer caregiver support alongside sessions with the patient.
For those interested in an objective and comprehensive understanding of their cognitive and psychological functioning, I provide comprehensive neuropsychological, psychoeducational, and psychological assessments. These assessments are for those who have questions about their attention, intelligence, memory, language, visual spatial functioning, executive functioning skills, psychomotor functioning, emotions, behaviors, and personality. The outcome of these assessments are useful in establishing a person’s cognitive baseline, clarifying diagnoses, and identify evidence-based and tailored interventions and strategies.
Alongside assessments and psychotherapy, I offer developmental services including consultations and review of film and entertainment projects from a psychological perspective, psychoeducation (in the form of workshops, seminars, media support), academic supervision, and clinical peer consultations, and research.
