Kadir values the therapeutic relationship and sees it as a central component of the work that he does with his clients. His warm, collaborative, and non-judgemental approach to psychotherapy nurtures a safe and supportive environment where clients can process their experiences and engage in self exploration which he believes promotes insight and fosters growth.

Most recently he received clinical training at Pathstone Mental Health where he conducted psycho-educational assessments for children and adolescents that were experiencing mental health concerns, behavioral challenges or learning difficulties. He wrote clinical reports that provided interpretations of results, clinical implications that identified treatment needs as well as recommendations that can be used for treatment planning.
