This is a great first step into getting what you want out of life.  It is so important to feel you have found someone with whom you can speak openly and freely. During our free initial consultation, I’ll answer any questions you have about therapy and explore what methods might be appropriate for you given your situation. The most important part of therapy is recognizing that you are on the right track to making progress towards your goals.

We’ll go over your goals and desires and how to evaluate reaching them. In the process, you’ll experience my style as a therapist and my commitment to helping you reach your personal therapy goals.

Difficulties do not have to hold us back. I work with my clients to transform their setbacks into constructive, empowering, life enhancing experiences. I provide therapy for creating permanent change in the way a person handles challenges and help them to find solutions for reaching their goals.

My approach is supportive yet directive and I encourage my clients to gradually step out of their comfort zone. I believe the best way to ensure progress is to get comfortable being uncomfortable so that you can be comfortable again! Whether it’s stress, anxiety, racing thoughts, pain, or all of the above, my goal with every client is to help them better understand how to use their brain to their advantage so that they can achieve their goals.

Please don't hesitate to reach out and schedule a complimentary phone consultation to see if my services are right for you. I look forward to hearing from you!

I truly understand what it's like to try to do everything well despite everyday frustrations and running on fumes between work and home. I urge you...take that one crucial step forward and give me a call. Let's partner up, build you up and reignite your purpose in life so you can continue doing what you do best!! I'm here with you on this life-long journey to healing.

To give a disclaimer, getting help isn't easy...neither is doing the work to feel and be better. The great news is that I've dedicated my life's work to helping people like us come out of that dark place and begin to see that sliver of hope amidst the storm clouds. Let's do it together and enjoy the transformation.

Motherhood is a transformational experience. We need connection and support while we navigate this new terrain to feel validated and to learn new tools for dealing with the parts of the journey that test us most. Becoming a parent has a tremendous impact on our identity and very concept of selfhood. It has great potential to reshape our understanding of ourselves and help us heal. I feel passionate about helping parents of all kinds to navigate pregnancy and the post-birth journey. Sharing our stories breaks the stigma around the psychological, emotional, physical, and spiritual strains of parenting.

I’m passionate about navigating pre-pregnancy, pregnancy, and the postpartum journey, and helping all parents develop healthy attachment with their children. I especially like to work with women in the transitional spaces, addressing identity shifts, ideas of mothering, wellness issues, and challenges. I work with parents who have experienced loss and NICU.

As a mother and stepmother, I understand just how much support parents need. I'm here to encourage honest conversations about the joys and difficult realities of parenting. To deepen the work in individual therapy, I also offer a pregnancy and postpartum therapy group.

As a naturalized American citizen of Iranian origin, I have a deep understanding of cross-cultural relationships and raising children with an emphasis on bicultural awareness. Identity is an important part of my work, and I welcome bicultural folxs from all life stages.

If you are viewing this profile, then there is a great likelihood that you, or someone you love, are in need of some help, whether that is because of addiction, loneliness, anxiety, or something else.

You are not alone!

Unfortunately, tens of millions of others in the US and around the world are facing similar circumstances either presently or in their past. Those who have sought help have usually fared better than those who have tried to go it alone. You're here, so you understand that and are seeking help.

I have created this profile so that I can make myself available to a larger number of people, and it is my goal to be able to help you not need my services.

That may sound strange, but like parents, whose goal is to prepare their children for life without them, a therapist's goal is the same. To help you find the resources both internally and externally, that you need to help you navigate life successfully. There is hope, and there are people available to help. Please don’t try to go it alone.

Every client is unique – and one of the reasons I love my profession is that I get to meet and work with such a wide variety of incredible people. The human condition is a complex one, and our personalities are a combination of internal reactions based on chemicals, emotions/feelings, intellectual, and the unexplained. It brings me great joy to assist a client in the pursuit of their hopes and dreams, and to mend their individual hearts and spirits, as well as their family's.

I work with couples who want to stay together but argue too frequently. Using a unique combination of inner process work and communication skills, using an intimacy based process, I help you make meaningful contact within and with your partner.

Many of us ignore our thoughts and feelings, trying to do the right thing in order to get along with others. This often leads to resentment and resignation. Learn how to connect within and express yourself while remaining connected to the other in non blaming ways. This creates an inner aliveness that changes the quality of your experience of life in the ever evolving present moment. Learn how to be selfish in healthy ways. I offer Gottman Couples Check up for $39. Discover the areas of strength and areas where attention is needed. Build your relationship satisfaction and send of aliveness that takes on average 3-6 months.

Some therapists focus on “problems,” “disorders” or what’s “wrong” with people—I do things a little differently. I help you identify your strengths and support your capability to design and achieve new outcomes for yourself.

I don’t pretend to have the answers to all life’s questions. I am, however, prepared to create a safe environment where you can gain insight into your life, discover new possibilities and make new choices to create the life you want.

Although it can be difficult to reach out for help, I believe we are most fully alive when we embrace our potential for growth. Often the desire to make more informed choices and gain a deeper understanding of who you are leads to increased self regard and less fear. Feeling fearful while moving forward is possible; the first step may be making the call to begin the process.

Whatever brought you here, it shows acknowledgement that we are human and awareness of our ability to work through our pains. It takes courage to recognize that additional help is needed and to try something different than you may be used to. Take a moment and appreciate your bravery; this is you trying something new, something you may not have thought about before! I believe we all experience pain in life; what’s important is to identify the healthiest ways to manage it and how to stay present. We can learn to channel our energy into valued living and be productive with our pain. I hope to encourage you to embrace life’s challenges, using your own strengths and internal resources, to move in the direction of growth and valued living. My intention is to provide a safe and motivating space to nurture insight, confidence, and readiness to take action in your life; to build a life you are proud and inspired to live.

Uncertain of what the future holds? Seemingly you have it all together, but deep down you’re filled with worry. You feel out of control and try everything possible to regain control, but it’s not working! Whether you feel pressured by societal expectations or are your own worst critic; life’s ups & downs can feel like a never-ending ride. Maybe it's self-esteem; maybe it's body image; maybe it's relationships or just overwhelming stress... Imagine if you felt balanced again; comfortable in your own skin. Imagine feeling confident and ready to embrace life’s chaos in the healthiest of ways. I can help.

I believe that you can live the life you desire. It starts with awareness that something is ‘stuck’, not working in the way we hoped it would, and willingness to acknowledge the need to reassess and try something different. Yes, it may be easier said than done; however, when you expand awareness of how your inner world is impacting your outer world (and vice versa) it opens up countless directions to choose from, creating opportunities for change and to build the life you truly want to live. When we learn to embrace the rollercoaster of life and to navigate its challenges in healthy ways, we have more energy to act in ways we value and to move in directions of our choice. When we are present, confident to take on the good and the bad, we have the ability, power, and space to create a life that is meaningful, joyful, and genuine. I hope to support you in your journey, providing you with the skills and insight needed, to grow and achieve your goals!
