About me

Hi, I’m Nadia. I’m glad you are here.

Perhaps you’re familiar with this immigration story. Members of my family have lived in four different countries over three generations, at times continents apart and others at the same address. My grandparents were subjects of the British Raj in India. After a bloody Partition, my parents were born in Pakistan. Both held Bangladeshi passports when they immigrated to Los Angeles shortly after the Liberation War won their motherland its independence.

I know what it’s like to be among the first Americans to arrive in your extended family. How acculturation can lead to choices about work and love that confuse those whose acceptance we crave, inspiring feelings of guilt or shame. These feelings can harden into anger, anxiety, and depression.

I joined my group psychotherapy practice because I recognize how hard it is not only to find a therapist who looks (more) like you but also understands what it means to negotiate life as an individual or within a family who identifies with an-other culture, religion, or both.

My practice uses evidence-informed approaches to heal interpersonal conflict, burnout, and trauma. I see you, and I want to make sure that you see you. No matter the loss or experience you are going through, I will work with you to create the sort of development in your life that will help you move forward and prepare for what is to come. Positivity doesn’t mean that things will turn out the way you want every time, but it does mean that you can find the best way forward.

Our mantra will be progress rather than perfection. I believe there is a solution to every problem. It starts by determining which are yours to solve. May all beings everywhere be happy and free. I am here for you. And I am ready to help you through the path of positivity and growth to achieve what you want most. Please call or email to schedule a free 15-minute consultation when you’re ready to start.
