Nadine Bouz, PsyD

Nadine Bouz, PsyD Hello, I'm Nadine Bouz, a Syrian American with a strong passion for psychology and a commitment to providing comprehensive care to individuals and families. My journey into the field of psychology was sparked by witnessing the transformative power it holds in healing the mind, body, and spirit. Growing up as the child of immigrant parents, I was acutely aware of the limited access to psychological care in many communities, including during my visits to Syria.
My approach to psychology is rooted in a holistic perspective, taking into account the biopsychosocial factors that shape an individual's development and presentation. I firmly believe that a person's socioeconomic status, medical history, and cultural background play vital roles in understanding their psychological needs. To provide effective care, I draw from evidence-based psychotherapy practices, particularly cognitive-behavioral principles, which I tailor to be culturally appropriate and responsive to each individual's unique circumstances. Additionally, I incorporate attachment-based principles to gain insights into the obstacles hindering my clients' development and their ability to connect with others. I work with clients to help recognize behaviors in a non-judgmental and compassionate therapeutic environment, in order to reduce shame and guilt, empowering clients to make more informed choices. 

My goal as a psychologist is to help clients build a repertoire of healthy coping mechanisms and adaptive behaviors that serve them well in managing stress, emotions, and life's challenges. I am dedicated to fostering a compassionate and culturally sensitive therapeutic environment where individuals can explore their inner worlds and embark on a journey toward personal growth and healing.
