Noor Zibdeh, LMSW

“Will I ever be happy again?”

“My past is haunting me.”

“He/She does not love me anymore.”

“I cannot focus or concentrate.”

“I forgot who I am, and I just don’t like myself.”

“I feel so guilty that I can’t breathe.”

“I absolutely hate my job.”

These are just a few common phrases I have heard over the years throughout my career. While you might relate to some of these phrases, each of our stories are unique. Our personal lives and situations are all different due to our environment, experiences, and personal dynamics in the workplace, with friends, or at home. Culture, religion, bullying, and social media can also shape the way we approach and view life.

I know how absolutely frightening it can be to share intimate details or discuss repressed feelings to a stranger. Or to take a leap to make the changes you want in your life when you feel like you don’t even know where to begin. Perhaps therapy is not new to you at all. Maybe you have taken enough steps to feel like you have walked around this earth a couple of times. But I must tell you just how brave and strong you are to come here today. Yes, I can say this without even having met you!

Whether we are meeting one on one in-person or having a remote session, I open my doors to you with dignity, respect, non-judgment, warm, safety, and a genuine environment. Therapy can feel like a difficult expedition at times, but my goal is to make sure that you find that hidden treasure that is there within you. As a Chinese proverb says, “A gem is not polished without rubbing, nor a man perfected without trials.”

About me: I obtained my Master’s in Social Work from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2009. My background has involved working in micro and macro settings. I have worked with victims of human trafficking and trauma, refugees both foreign and domestic, elders, people with dementia, and people with mental health and substance abuse concerns. I love working with individuals and couples. I have a strong passion for Mental Health Awareness and Anti-Bullying. Big fan of laughter, jokes, travel, movies, and music.

I cannot wait to meet you and I’m already excited about taking this journey together.
