About me

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the States of Florida and Texas. I graduated in 2009 from Nova Southeastern University in Florida. I speak English, Spanish and Arabic. I maintain a general practice working mainly with adults. I identify myself as a brief systemic solution oriented therapist.
As a professional, I am intensely interested in a lifelong learning and continuing to master the healing arts of therapy. I am curious about people and their stories, their strengths , their struggles and their resources.
My strength as a therapist is in being empathetic and intuitively sensitive to my client's needs. My treatment philosophy is that I find each person and each situation different. I believe that people have internal resources that are available to help bring about a successful resolution to life's challenges. I approach my clients with warmth and a non-judgmental style. I work collaboratively with my clients to understand their unique qualities and concerns. Together, we discuss goals and needs and develop plans accordingly.

Jinan is the best therapist I’ve had. She’s made me feel safe and I admire how much she cares. I can be very stubborn but she’s guided me to a better path. I never thought I’d be able to truly open up in therapy but she made it possible. I’m grateful for her being my therapist, I feel like I’ve gotten hope and I’ve felt at peace in a way I never have before thanks to her advice and our sessions.

Jinan has be doing a great job helping me with my situation. I appreciate what she has done so far & I'd definitely recommend her to others.

Written on Dec 05, 2022 after therapy with Jinan for 4 days on issues concerning self esteem

This is definitely not what I signed up for.
Abrupt introduction where she refused to conduct a session on the basis that I hadn't provided extra information to her. I provided sign up details when signing up with Better Help and read a confidentiality statement. I was not provided with a service that I pay for.

Jinan is very easy to work with and truly cares about you. She offered a lot of really good perspective and ways to go forth. She helped me see other side of the coin, regardless of how hard I want to avoid it. Unfortunately due to my personal flakiness and inability to communicate consistently we can’t continue anymore, even then she gave me a solution and referred me to find local therapist and support system. She is a phenomenal human being and absolute professional in her field, she will help you discover the deep part of yourself that you don’t even know to begin with.

I've been seeing Jinan for about 5/6 months now. She is a fantastic therapist and I am beyond grateful to have found her. I have learned and grown so much from seeing her. Although I still have a lot of work to do, she has helped me stop questioning myself so much, figure out what I need to work on and she has helped me gain confidence and become more content within myself. She is kind, empathetic, patient, understanding, wise & personable to name but a few. She has been invaluable and I can't thank her enough. I highly recommend!

Jinan is a wonderful therapist. She is kind and engaged and a great listener. She understands my issues and listens without judgment and always has valuable insights for how to live a better life. She is always doing her best to encourage me to continue to do work between sessions, but is patient with me when I'm unable to. I can't recommend her enough.

There's a Billie Eilish song that says, "I'm in love with my future / can't wait to meet her / And I'm in love / But not with anybody else / Just wanna get to know myself."

When I first began to meet with Jinan, I couldn't see my future. I was deep in depression and felt that it had sucked all the worth and value out of not just my life, but out of me. I felt blank and empty and disconnected. I work full time, have a husband and three kids, and a lot of responsibility that had become too heavy for me to carry. That was in November of 2021. It's the end of March 2022 and I danced into work this morning, curious to see what I could make of this day. Jinan listened, created a safe space for me to share all the ways I was selling my self short and helped reveal my cognitive distortions. She provided invaluable advice and taught me how to see myself properly. Jinan seemed to understand me and with empathy, met me at my lowest. I'm happy to say that she guided me to the highest place I've been in a long while. I don't know if therapy is supposed to be fun, but my experience leaves me with a new inner voice that supports me and loves me radically. It was FUN, finding that Jinan was right. She kept telling me over and over that depression couldn't steal who I was. And it couldn't and it can't. Therapy with Jinan-- our conversations, her insights, her pointed questions-- was one of the most rewarding relationships I've had in my life. I'm so thankful I reached out for help and I want to shout about Jinan and the professional, caring, unconditionally accepting and non-judgmental space she creates for her clients. I am becoming. When I review my therapy goals, I see how far I've come. And although I took those steps with my own feet, it was Jinan who showed me the path to take. I'm grateful for therapy. I'm in love with my future. And I can't wait to meet who I'm always becoming. Thank you, Jinan. From the bottom of my depressed, shiny and always interrupting heart. Thank you.

Jinan is a great at what she does! I was at the lowest point in my life and really needed help and guidance. I question everything and didnt believe it would get better. Jinan listened w/o judgment and made me feel heard. She kept up with me, but also included helpful worksheets- that were great for me to work on. reading material- that i also appreciated and because i needed that at that time and just overall understanding of what i was going through. I totally recommend her. 10/10

Dear Jinan,

In just a few days, I have made major discoveries of my life. On our first meeting, you challenged me. You woke me up from my life nightmare, which I was blind to see through. You disillusioned me. You are saving me and my family. How can I thank you enough? You are a gift sent to me from the universe!
