Academic and Professional Profile
I completed my PhD in counselling psychology at the University of British Columbia, with an accredited internship at the University of California at Berkeley, Counselling and Psychological Services. I am also a registered psychologist with the College of Psychologists of BC that enables me to provide therapy for clients presenting with a range of mental health concerns.
In 1996, as a refugee from Afghanistan, I was selected by the World University Services of Canada to settle in Canada based on my academic excellence. WUSC is an agency that enables refugee students fleeing war to pursue higher education. Coming to Canada exposed me not only to a journey of reconciling my multiple cultural identities but also shaped my choice of a career in psychology and the helping profession.
