Encouraged by her own family’s struggles with wellness, Isma earned her M.D. from the UNIBE School of Medicine. During her time in the Dominican Republic, Isma volunteered with Boston’s Brigham & Women’s Hospital to provide free prosthetics and knee replacement surgeries to the underprivileged. She also worked in Haiti after the tragic earthquake in 2010, and provided medical aid to those in need. There, she witnessed the psychological impact the disaster had on the people of Haiti, which sparked her interest into the field of Psychiatry and the Neuroscience.
Isma has since pursued her passion for the field at the Amen Clinics. She has taken part in trainings with Joel Lubar, Ph.D., BCIA-EEG Senior Fellow, and QEEG Diplomate. She particularly enjoys working with children, adolescents, and adults who suffer with ADHD, anxiety, and depression. Isma is currently providing qEEG’s and Neurofeedback therapy at the Amen Clinics in Reston and is additionally pursuing her BCIA certification.
