Shireen Omar

I am a licensed psychologist specialized in Neuropsychology (mainly Neurodevelopmental disorders). My area of expertise includes diagnosis of psychological disorders, counseling, Ego state therapy, psychometric testing, and CBT. As a psychologist, I am experienced in treating any kind of psychological issues ranging from depression, anxiety disorders, eating disorders, sleep disorders, PTSD, fear phobias, bereavement issues, anger management to any psychosomatic problems.

I prefer tailoring my treatment plan on a case to case basis. My style of counseling and therapy integrates various approaches in accordance to what suits the issue at hand in the most effective of ways.

As a diagnostic specialist, I am particularly trained in ADOS and ADI-R, the gold standard diagnostic assessment used worldwide for the diagnosis of Autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

The focus of my treatment remains to help children and adults overcome, deal with, and resolve any psychological or mental health problems that would help improve their quality of life.
