Hi, my name is Zamen Abo-Zebiba, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Nationally Certified Counselor. My own cultural competency is built on a lifetime of international experiences. Growing up surrounded by cultures different from my own, I was encouraged to identify and value both the commonalities and differences of the human experience. Exposure to diverse peoples was instrumental in shaping my worldview and values. My awareness and appreciation of cross-cultural understanding grows continually. I highly respect and value individuals who come from different cultural backgrounds and faiths. I feel strongly about helping people who don’t have a voice. I want to be an advocate and pursue a role that will allow me to help as many people as I can. I chose this profession because I feel passionate about it. Not many people are fortunate enough to find a job or a career that they feel so passionately about and I am thankful for that.
I have a speciality training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). I utilize CBT as my primary theoretical orientation because I find it to be helpful with many different populations. I like that CBT is a collaboration between client and therapist and that they work together to problem-solve and there is an emphasis on treatment goals. I also have extensive training in a range of modalities which include Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) for emotional dysregulation as well as other mindfulness based therapies. I believe that it is very important for clients to be aware of their emotions and to be able to have that sense of control back. Other areas of specialty include trauma, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, self-esteem, and relationships.
Individuals need to be in an environment where they feel safe, accepted, and not judged and this is what I provide. You have already made the first step, and I would welcome the opportunity to help you in that journey.
I look forward to working with you.
