Kareen Elie Bekhazi

Ms. Kareen Bekhazi was born and raised in Lebanon before pursuing studies in Psychology in the United States. From there, ambitious and forward-looking, she dedicated her career to the de-stigmatization of mental illness, in the US, the UAE, and Lebanon. With specializations in substance use, addictive disorders, and couples therapy she supports and guides her clients through the complex journey towards mental wellbeing and emotional fulfillment. In addition, Ms. Bekhazi has extensive training in mood disorders, anxiety disorders, and personality disorders. Through her experience over the years, she has learned to believe that the light enters through the cracks, and understand there is often meaning in pain and growth in conflict. She uses this mantra in the psychotherapeutic process in addition to the latest evidence-based techniques.
