Your Desi Helpline

Zulaikha Akbarzada Straight


The feedback that I regularly hear from my clients is that my ability to create a gentle, supportive environment that highlights strengths and identifies unhealthy patterns is effective in helping them move through change, even when previous therapy has been ineffective. I can help with many different issues such as Trauma, Family, Relationships, Social, Depression, Anxiety, Phobias, Stress, ADHD, and bullying. Additionally, I have a passion for working with cultural and spiritual trauma.

I have extensive training in several specialties: Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Trauma Resolution and Memory Reconsolidation, Mindfulness and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. I see adolescents as young as 14 and adults up to 80.

Please feel free to email me if you would like to follow up or have any questions. I look forward to hearing from you!
