About

Hi There~ My name is Dina Bdaiwi; I am a dual registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist and Professional Clinical Counselor in CA. I also provide coaching services nationally and internationally. I provide therapy via Telehealth and in person walk and talk therapy (in Irvine, CA). I focus on  supporting adolescent and young adult clients with eating disorders, disordered eating, body image, gender identity, LGBTQ+ identities, and childhood trauma.  I am of Mexican and Syrian heritages, I am so here for all the mixed folks out there! I am also an immigrant and often support clients navigating feels regarding immigration status and mixed status families. My approaches to therapy:

  • EMDR--Trauma approach involving eye movement and the body to address traumatic experiences to decrease PTSD symptoms.
  • Feminist therapy--Co-create Space, centering your voice and views, consciousness raising, decolonizing thoughts.
  • Relational Cultural--Viewing clients in context of culture, family, history, childhood experiences, and leaning on community support.
  • Narrative--Story telling, listening and co-creating affirming stories about ourselves and the world.
  • HAES, Health At Every Size, treatment of body image concerns and disordered eating habits which I practice with clients to embrace their size and bodies as they are without feeling pressure to change.
  • Mindfulness Based Practices-- practice mindful breathing, somatic (body) practices, mindful guided meditations and visualizations--primarily used for anxiety and when in activation of traumatic symptoms.

  You are more than just your body and appearance. Given that I am passionate about healing, my words of wisdom are: Be Who You Needed When you Were Younger. Feel free to reach out and ask questions!
