WEJDAN ALSEQAMI, MA, LPC
Wejdan's first commitment to her clients is to create a secure and inclusive environment that serves as the foundation for growth in therapy. She believes that genuine connection is vital in fostering a safe space and a true sense of collaboration, and she starts and continues this connection by presenting her authentic self. As a first-generation immigrant, Wejdan recognizes the value and significance of culturally competent practices. With this in mind, she aims to cultivate an atmosphere conducive to the flourishing of individuals from diverse cultural backgrounds.
Wejdan utilizes several evidence-based approaches in therapy, including Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), and Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT). She also integrates aspects of Solution Focused therapy, Mindfulness, and Motivational Interviewing. She is mindful of tailoring her approaches in therapy to the unique needs of her clients, rather than taking a "one-size fits all" approach.
Her extensive professional background includes experience in a hospital setting in Saudi Arabia, where she conducted neuropsychological assessments. In the United States, she has worked in residential treatment, partial hospitalization programs, and intensive outpatient programs focused on eating disorders and co-occurring disorders. Her areas of clinical specialization and interest include eating disorders, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder, and substance use. She works with adolescents ages 13+ as well as adults.
Wejdan earned her Bachelor's degree in Psychology from King Abdulaziz University (B.A.) and her Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from Cardinal Stritch University (M.A.).
