About Me

Yasmin Abdi profile picture

Hello! My name is Yasmin Abdi (she/her) and I am a first-generation, Latina-Arab American. I graduated with my Masters in Clinical Psychology from San Jose State University. While my clinical work began in 2012 as a Rape Crisis Advocate in Riverside, CA, my passion and interest in therapy and mental health began much earlier.

As a first-generation and only daughter to hard working immigrant parents, I grew up with many privileges that my parents did not, and I also internalized many of the messages and expectations that came with this identity. I understand the pain and impact that culture, intergenerational trauma, and family dynamics can have on our mental health. Which is why I am passionate about de-stigmatizing mental health and exploring these topics with my clients.

Outside of my identity as a therapist, I am a daughter to immigrant parents from Guatemala and Lebanon, an advocate and ally, a partner, and a friend. In my free time, I love being in the beautiful outdoors of Northern California, learning and growing as a person, trying new restaurants, tapping into my creative side, and enjoying a good laugh.

I know how hard it can be to take the first step to seeking help. As someone who has been “on the other side of the couch”, I deeply value creating a safe and caring space for my clients. I take a collaborative approach to my work. My clients learn from me, and I also learn from and with them.

I am honored and humbled when my clients trust me to walk alongside them on their journey and this is something I hold sacred and near to my heart.
