She is an Associate Member of the Canadian Association for Marriage & Family Therapy (CAMFT) and the International Center for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy (ICEEFT), and is trained in multiple therapeutic models, predominantly using attachment-based interventions and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) in her practice. Yasmin began her career working with individuals in private practices and psychiatric facilities in Egypt and continued her education and clinical training in Canada and the US. Her breadth of experience both clinically and culturally allows her to effectively work with individuals from diverse backgrounds.
Yasmin began her training with EFT in Canada in 2016 where she trained with Sue Johnson & Gail Palmer and grew a deep connection to the model from the immediate results she experienced both on a personal level and professionally in her work with couples. She is very eager to help bring EFT to the Egyptian community and believes that this groundbreaking model will bring profound results in therapists’ sessions.
In her sessions, Yasmin works gently and compassionately and uses clinically tested and evidence-based interventions to help enhance relationships and overcome obstacles that get in the way of connection and bonding.
