Announcement icon In these uncertain times, I am available for teletherapy via video chat. Please reach out if you need support.
I believe the core of human development is physiological, psychological and spiritual. Supportive therapy can help awaken an individual's dormant spirit and guide them through profound personal transformations. I work with children, teens, adults, couples, and groups. I apply client-centered Lifespan Integration (LI) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). In addition, I add a Cross-Cultural approach when working with my immigrant clients (Iranians & other immigrant communities). LI: The human mind develops interactively in response to the early childhood environment. The developing neural system "hardwire" interprets events and stays with individuals throughout their lifetime.
Low self-image, chronic anxiety and triggered negative thoughts lead individuals to feel hopeless, which prevents them from forming a unified self. Through constructing the clients' autobiographical narratives, LI gives the client a chance to improve self-regulating abilities, heal anxiety and trauma (PTSD), as well as build a more solid self.
CBT: Goal-setting, monitoring automatic thoughts, looking at biases in thinking, and overcoming negative outlooks are the major areas of CBT. Cross-Cultural Approach: alienation, withdrawal & separation in new environments can be smoothed over by strengthening an individual's personal and cultural identity.
