I am an Australian-trained Psychologist, with over 10 years’ experience in the field. Alongside my part-time clinical work, I work full-time as an Assistant Professor of Psychology at Heriot-Watt University Dubai Campus. Prior to joining Openminds Psychiatry, Counseling and Neuroscience Center, I worked in government entities, public healthcare institutions and private clinics in Australia and the UAE. My experience has traversed across forensic, clinical, and organizational psychology. I am passionate about empowering and enabling clients to better understand and take control of their own lives, and deliver individual and couples treatment programs, as well as training courses, community outreach, and psycho-educational seminars and workshops. I completed my Master of Psychology (Forensic), and my PhD, at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Sydney, Australia. I am licensed locally by the Community Development Authority (CDA) of Dubai, as well as in Australia by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). I work with adults and older adolescents (aged 16 years and above) to help treat and manage a wide range of mental health issues such as Mood Disorders, Personality Disorders, Stress Reactions, Adjustment Disorders, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and more. I also work with couples to address couples’ difficulties and challenges.
