Sound Heart Integrative Counseling uses an integrative approach to counseling that is rooted in Islamic psychology and utilizes components of cognitive and behavioral therapies (ACT, CBT, and DBT), somatic experiencing (SE), attachment work, eye movement and desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), emotionally focused therapy (EFT), internal family systems (IFS), and other modalities to fit your particular needs.
We believe that the heart is the core of our being. This faculty is not limited to only the physical heart, but includes a spiritual dimension. The heart is our greatest source of connection to The Divine and has its own unique way of feeling, knowing, and processing. When our hearts are sick we suffer, and when our hearts are sound we thrive. We focus on heart work, while integrating all aspects of the human experience, to support clients in their journey toward healing and positive transformation.
“Truly in the body is a piece of flesh, if it is sound the entire body is sound and if it is corrupt the entire body is corrupt, truly it is the heart.”~ Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of God be upon him)
