Daliah Altal is a graduate student pursuing a Ph.D. in Clinical and Community Psychology at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. She has trained at the UMBC Psychology Training Clinic, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy of Maryland, and at the Palestinian Counseling Center in Palestine. Passionate about working with underserved communities, Daliah seeks out equitable and decolonial practices in her training and education. She relies primarily on CBT, ACT, and mindfulness techniques in her practice, while ensuring to use culturally relevant adaptations when necessary. 

 

Daliah finds that each client's unique circumstances, context, and worldview are important to understand and take into account during the therapeutic process. She believes that therapy must be a collaborative and non-judgmental experience that emphasizes clients' strengths to increase their trust in themselves and to help them to increase coping skills. Daliah is passionate about healing both personally and professionally. She rejuvenates herself in nature, with animals, and in exploring different cuisines.
