Ms. Abugideiri practices therapy guided by Islamic ethics and values, while also adhering to the highest professional standards. Being Muslim does not prevent people from having problems in their lives; however, counseling can help clients access resources from within their faith and religious teachings to help overcome and better cope with these challenges. In addition, clients can learn many skills and tools to resolve conflicts, improve communication, and improve emotional well-being.
