Marwa is a Registered Psychologist in Alberta and holds a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology. In addition to training with CTRI, she is a Mental Health Therapist, providing triage and assessment to people struggling with addiction and mental health concerns. She also has a private practice where she works with families around various issues including anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, and family relationships. Additionally, Marwa consults with community and faith-based organizations on topics related to mental health. As a clinician she believes that people are the experts in their own lives and have within them the strength and capacity to enact change. Marwa approaches her work through an attachment and developmental lens and sees that her role as a therapist is to help empower people to write their own life stories, explore their own values and beliefs about how the world works, and develop authentic, fulfilling relationships. She is also a contributing author of CTRI’s book, Counselling in Relationships, and is the author or editor of several of CTRI’s training materials, including those on the topics of attachment and counselling in relationships. As a trainer she brings warmth and humour and draws on her varied experiences to make for an engaging, relevant training experience. Read blogs written by Marwa here.
