About

Are anxiety or depression getting in the way of your relationships or career? Have you experienced trauma or abuse? Have you been struggling after a major change in your life? Are you a first responder or front-line worker exposed to intense stress? Is your marriage plagued by fighting and mistrust? You can get out of feeling stuck or feeling tense and on edge. In therapy, we will work towards building practical coping skills that will improve your everyday life. You can start feeling less anxious, more motivated, more effective as a parent and a partner. Together we will gain insight and build strength for a more satisfying life.
In a safe, non-judgmental atmosphere, we will work to develop the skills that best support your needs and your goals. Based on your needs, we may draw from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness-based stress reduction, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and other solutions-focused tools.
You can expect expert care with compassion and simplicity. Life is hard, parenting is never easy, relationships are fraught, and trauma can hold you back. Fortunately, evidence-based tools can help you grow and thrive. We can work together to help you gain calm, confidence, the respect of your children, and real connection with your spouse.

Zahra Kolahdouz's Groups

Online DBT Skills Training for ages 16+

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is a well researched, evidence-based treatment originally designed for Borderline Personality Disorder. This therapy blends Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), focusing on our thoughts and actions, and Zen Buddhism which focuses on becoming a mindful observer of one’s experiences. This program can be an excellent addition to your current therapy or as done as a self-help program. It's a 24 week long program focused on teaching these 4 modules: Mindfulness, Emotion Regulation, Interpersonal Effectiveness & Distress Tolerance Online Classes run in repeated cycles, so you can start at different times of the year.
