About Amira

Amira is originally from a small town in Oregon, but spent the majority of her childhood and adolescence growing up in sunny San Diego, CA. She moved to Tacoma in 1996 to attend the University of Puget Sound, where she studied Rhetoric and African-American Studies. 


After her undergraduate education, Amira earned a Master's degree in Education from Seattle University, and has been a member of the faculty at Tacoma Community College, Tacoma Community House, and Courage 360 (a local non-profit agency). Amira has also served as a chaplain at the University of Puget Sound and as a workshop facilitator and guest lecturer at Pacific Lutheran University and The University of Washington, Tacoma.

As an educator, Amira became passionate about the idea of helping others identify and utilize their strengths, overcome barriers, and achieve their goals. As a therapist, she brings the patience, compassion, humor, and problem-solving strategies from her classroom into the therapy room, providing her clients with the tools they need to uncover their potential, lead more meaningful, authentic lives, and build healthier, more fulfilling relationships with partners and family members.
