Clinical Therapist, Residential Program

Haneen holds a Master’s degree in Clinical and Counselling Psychology and is a professional member in good standing with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA).

More +

Some of her experience includes working with clients dealing with addictions, family issues, grief, women’s issues, mood disorders, anxiety, self-esteem, stress, relationship issues, trauma, among other challenges.  As such, she uses a variety of culturally sensitive and linguistically appropriate approaches (e.g., extensive use of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Psychoeducation, Motivational Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Focused Family Therapy and Couple Therapy, to name a few)  to assist clients, depending on their individual and unique needs.

Haneen’s greatest reward as a clinical therapist is empowering individuals to overcome personal obstacles to improve their quality of life through self-reflection and exploring ways to make the changes in their lives that will allow them to look forward to the future with hope.  She provides clients with a warm, safe and non-judgmental environment to explore the issues that may be preventing them from living the life they want.

If you feel that you are ready to commit to bringing about positive change in your life, we encourage you to take that first step and contact us.Close –
