Why Choose Me?

Addiction Recovery

There is hope for full recovery from your addiction! Muna works along side her clients to help them find and maintain recovery.

Treatment is based upon research that is proven to maintain sobriety: individual counseling including trauma recovery therapy, along with support groups (like 12-step meetings).

Sexual addiction and its compulsions create overwhelming shame, especially for women struggling with the addiction. Muna cares about your recovery and her desire is to help you reach your full potential, while redeeming your sexuality and finding freedom from the shame and the addiction.

Trauma, Anxiety and Powerful Therapeutic Tools

Muna uses research based therapeutic tools to reach the desired growth goals of each client, such as Art Therapy and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).

Art Therapy is the creative process of art making, and is used to access new areas of our process that talk therapy does not reach. Muna uses art therapy to improve and enhance her client’s mental and emotional stability and well-being. 

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma and anxiety. EMDR reactivates different parts of disturbing memories and allows the brain to reprocess the experience.

Partners of Sex Addicts

Muna works with partners of sex addicts to help them find comfort and healing from the crisis that they are facing. The partner’s experience is traumatizing and leaves the partner confused, anxious, and emotionally distressed. Muna creates an environment for the partner to heal from the relational trauma, and experience personal growth and rebuild trust with their partner (the sex addict).

Young Adults

Young adults are faced with many transitions and new awareness to themselves, family, work, and relationships, which can cause distress and discomfort. Muna guides and helps her clients to reach their desired goals.

Muna also enjoys working with young adult couples in pre-engagement, pre-marital, or marital therapy. Muna’s goal for each couple is to develop healthy communication, boundaries, and trust, which creates spiritual, emotional, and physical health in relationships.
