My name is Mohammadee (She/Her), and I'm a first-generation South Asian, Indian Muslim woman. I am a relational, trauma, and dissociation-informed therapist, committed to understanding the impact that interpersonal, systemic, and intergenerational trauma can have on our sense of self and safety in the world.
Over the years, I have worked with survivors of intergenerational, sexual, and developmental/childhood trauma, and have learned how our early childhood experiences and environment shape the ways we show up in adulthood. I believe that the development of our internal world is reflected by our early relationships, and to understand what has happened then requires a collaborative, open, and curious relationship in the now.
I view Psychotherapy as another method of Storytelling, a dynamic space where we can think, imagine, create, wonder, question, challenge, and notice the clues of our daily experiences. I recognize that processing trauma looks different for each person, so I mindfully integrate different approaches to help each client heal and connect with their mind, body, intuition, and emotions.
We are all complex human beings on a constant journey to return home to ourselves. My approach is tailored to support you in reconnecting with yourself so you can work towards creating a meaningful and lasting change in your life. I am committed to earning your trust and exploring your journey, reflecting with you on how you relate and react to different aspects of yourself, while considering the generational ways you've adapted to moments of pain, overwhelm, and trauma.
