Mahshad Aryafar is not currently accepting new clients.
I work primarily with adults seeking to improve their mental health, overcome destructive or addictive behavioural patterns, creative block, recover from trauma, burnout or stressful life situations, make life or career transitions, and enhance relationships, so that they can live a more enriched and meaningful life. Furthermore, as a therapist who has gone through immigration experience, I help my clients build bridges between the different cultures they navigate in, and to create a unique and cohesive cultural identity and sense of self. I conduct therapy sessions in both English and Farsi.
I am a trauma informed, integrative psychotherapist, drawing on a variety of therapeutic techniques such as psychodynamic, attachment, trauma theory, and mindfulness. Within a compassionate therapeutic space, we explore and make sense of distressing thoughts, emotions, and experiences. We make short-term goals and achieve lasting outcomes that work for you.
I work with clients of diverse identity and cultural backgrounds with an understanding that culture and identity are an integral part of an individual's place in the world. In an open and empathic therapeutic space, together we navigate the identity and cultural map of your life toward a more meaningful and cohesive sense of self.
