About me

Born in Canada with a Persian-Polish background, I moved around quite often from a young age, jumping from Canada, the USA, Poland, the UAE, and Spain, finally settling in Warsaw, Poland.

I understand the potential challenges of navigating multiple cultures, being uprooted, and questioning a sense of identity and belonging. Between social expectations, communities, and building your own identity among sometimes conflicting factors, I believe we all have the ability to find self-acceptance and peace within ourselves, as well as finding the opportunity for growth.

I graduated as a Clinical Psychologist in the University of Warsaw, with my specialization being in neuropsychology.

Apart from navigating through our external and social world, I also support individuals with psychedelic integration from past (both positive and negative) experiences they may have had. I provide a safe space to those who feel like they may struggle with substance addiction.

My approach

In my psychological sessions, I draw from a combination of evidence-based therapies, including solution-focused therapy, ACT, and some elements of CBT. I customize my approach to suit the specific needs and goals of each individual. Through our collaboration, I aim to help you cultivate greater self-awareness, build resilience, and create a more meaningful and fulfilling life.
