Quratulain also has experience leading and co-facilitating psychoeducational groups for survivors of abuse.

Quratulain believes people’s identities are formed from their vast life experiences, regardless of their numerical age. She operates from the perspective that people’s environments and genetics, both contribute to who a person becomes, what they value, and how they choose to exist in the world. Quratulain pays attention to where people are in their lives and really focuses on meeting clients where they are emotionally in that moment. She aims to create trust and hold a special space for people of all backgrounds. Quratulain believes everyone deserves a special space in which they can be, unfiltered and unapologetically themselves.
