Kareen Elie Bekhazi

Ms. Kareen was born and raised in Lebanon, before pursuing my studies in Psychology in the United States. From there, ambitious and forward-looking, I dedicated my career to the de-stigmatization of mental illness, in the US, the UAE, and Lebanon. With specializations in substance use and addictive disorders and couples therapy I support and guide my clients through their journeys towards mental wellbeing and emotional fulfillment. In addition, I have extensive training in mood disorders, anxiety disorders, and personality disorders. Throughout my career, I have learned to believe and understand that the light enters through the cracks, and have thus used this mantra in the process of psychotherapy, and constantly learning that there is always meaning in pain and growth in conflict.
