Nadia completed her undergraduate studies in International Studies at the University of North Texas. After graduation, she moved to Fort Worth to help start a non-profit that works with the homeless, refugees, and women who have been commercially sexually exploited. As Nadia worked with women incarcerated inside Tarrant County Jail, she found that she enjoyed being a safe person for individuals who are in need of feeling heard and accepted. Her experiences working with the marginalized led her to pursue her Masters in Counseling at The University of North Texas.
Nadia’s clinical training has included working with individuals with anxiety, trauma, addiction, and life-transitions. Nadia’s personal experience of struggling with anxiety in adulthood led her to go through yoga teacher training so that she could feel more equipped to heal her mind and body through health and wellness. Nadia feels passionate about seeing individuals in a holistic perspective and empowering them to change their lives.
In her spare time, Nadia enjoys traveling to unfamiliar countries to learn more about different cultures. She also spends her time volunteering with a local non-profit and teaches yoga and mindfulness classes inside Dallas County Jail.
