Mona Lee Yousef Practice Description
I have worked intensively and extensively with those struggling with (and/or recovering from) all forms of addictive disorders: alcohol/drugs, sexual compulsivity, eating disorders, gambling. In addition, I am strongly experienced in and sensitive to issues of grief/loss, sexual abuse/trauma, identity concerns, chronic illness (especially HIV/AIDS) and a myriad of relational/attachment and sexual concerns. Throughout my 28 years in practice, I have treated an adult clientele of diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds as well as all sexual and gender identifications. I believe that each person's therapeutic journey is unique; my commitment is to fostering a safe and supportive connection between us where all thoughts, feelings, issues and dysfunctional patterns may be honestly, creatively and compassionately explored.
