About Me

 

I’m a queer Muslim(-ish) femme and settler of colour with ancestral roots in Iran. My journey to healing-oriented work began over ten years ago with feminist, community-based organizing. Those years were the beginnings of language-ing my own grief, my own rage, and my own joy. It was through the communities I walked within, and the powerful writings of feminist and critical race theorists that I arrived here, to therapy.

 

My therapeutic work is politicized, embodied, slow, and creative. To learn more about my approach, click here.
