I am mental health expert working in United Arab of Emirate, under ministry of health and prevention, particularly in primary health care sector. I earned my master’s degree in psychiatric mental health nursing from the university of Jordan, and I have been working with adolescents and young adults for the past 6 years. I have been recognized in establishing the role of advanced practice mental health nurse in Jordan in a tertiary hospital.

Mental health expert is a specialized area of practice that is committed to promoting mental health well being through working with individuals, families, groups, and communities to assess their mental health needs, screen for mental health problems, develop initial diagnoses and plan of care, implement treatment plans, conduct cognitive behavioral therapy and evaluate it for effectiveness.

The targeted Populations include healthy clients for mental health promotion and psychoeducational purposes, clients in crisis and distress, clients with common chronic mental illnesses such as depression and anxiety, clients needing support to manage serious, chronic, and persistent medical illness, and other populations; clients needing support to fight obesity, pregnant women, newly diagnosed with chronic medical disease such as diabetes, HTN, etc.

My holistic approach is adaptive. No two individuals are the same, and so my approach to therapy is very much in keeping with the ability to be authentically flexible throughout our sessions.

Training at the Beck Institute for Cognitive Behavioral Therapy has solidified my understanding and implementation of CBT. Becoming a Beck Institute CBT Certified Clinician has been the culmination of my experiences and passion toward cognitive behavioral therapy approach.

I believe that learning and refining skills should be an ongoing process. For that,  mindfulness based cognitive therapy is the field of my interest where I would like to expand my knowledge and skills.  For that,  frequently  I attend  internationally sponsored CBT conferences to learn new cutting-edge practices and methods in the field as well as to experience varying cultural perspectives.
