She has two master’s degrees: A Master of Arts in Sociology-Anthropology from the American University in Cairo and a Master of Science in Educational Psychology from the Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich.
Previously, Doaa has served as an adjunct instructor at the American University in Cairo and a teacher of High School Psychology. Doaa was also the Social Science Residential Fellow and Research Coordinator at the Cairo Institute for Liberal Arts and Social Sciences. Her former teaching and research background in school settings, institutes, and universities provides her with valuable insights into the rich lived experiences of young adolescents and familial concerns and challenges during this critical stage of their personal development.
Doaa has a deep interest in working with neurodivergent individuals who don’t necessarily feel understood or fit societal norms and expectations. She is in training for providing an existentially informed client-centered approach to people struggling to adapt or adjust to everyday life.
Doaa’s style is warm, empathic, authentic, and playful. She believes in building positive relationships with her clients and introduces suitable therapeutic tools to promote ongoing growth and development.
