Palos Heights Staff


My name is Nagla Mostafa, I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist here at Leyden Dupage Counseling. I specialize in providing psychotherapy for individuals, couples and families with a strength based approach. I also work for Timberline Knolls Residential Treatment Center and specialize in working with acute cases of mental health disorders and their families.

I went to University of Southern California for my undergraduate Business Degree then to Benedictine University in Illinois. I earned my Masters Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Northern Illinois University.

During my work at 360 Youth Services, NIU Family Therapy Clinic, Sound Hearts Therapy Inc. and Aunt Martha’s Youth Services for the past few years, I was able to gain tremendous experience in using evidence based therapy to empower people and to bring change in their lives. I am interested in working with couples, teenagers’s and young adults’ behavioral issues and families who struggle or are in crisis. I have proven competency in my clinical work because I believe in the importance of quality psychotherapy for all family members to manage crisis, improve communication and enhance quality of life.
