How can I help you? Was there a crisis, or an unexpected, yet, traumatic event that has happened in your life?

As your Therapist I will listen, be supportive, and help you deal with the crisis, trauma, and stressors in your life. I provide a warm, inviting, safe, and non-judgmental space where you and your healing are my main focus.
Do you battle with feeling anxious, panicky, sad, trapped, or helpless? Is it hard to enjoy things that you used to do? Anxiety and depression can affect every aspect of your life - your relationships and family life, your work or schooling, even your self-care and physical well-being. Since 1990 I have helped hundreds of people find greater understanding of their frightening or demoralizing feelings and learn the skills they need to become confident, engaged, and even passionate about life. There are things in life you can't control...anxiety and depression are not among them.

Welcome and congratulations on taking the first step toward gaining essential tools to help you during life's challenging breakdowns. I am here to help you build an amazing set of "tools" to use when you have to navigate through rough terrain in your life. I am particularly passionate about working with you surrounding addiction issues of yours or a loved one.
There are times in life when our paths lead us off course and we find ourselves struggling with serious issues like negativity, depression, worry, anxiety, interpersonal relational issues, difficulty with co-workers or unfulfilling marriages. Some of us struggle with unresolved trauma from our past, leaving us feeling distant, disconnected and alone. No matter how difficult your current situation seems, I believe that it is always possible to get back on track and feel better. In my years specializing in domestic violence, eating disorders and trauma related therapy, I have helped individuals, couples and families overcome multiple obstacles.
Greetings with love! I'm Dr. Arayeh! I have a Ph.D. in psychology with a focus on mindfulness. I'm a certified transformational coach and speaker in personal healing, relationships, conscious parenting, corporate mindfulness training, and an international bestselling co-author. I help you transform anger, overwhelm, and other low-vibration habits, so you can live from the place of love and joy instead of lack and fear and build harmonious relationships within yourself and with your loved ones. I do believe joy is our birthright, and we can learn how to claim it.
We live in very challenging times, and that affects our mood, our sense of security and our capacity to deal with everyday life issues. Many of us are experiencing anxiety and depression which impact relationships. Are you finding that you and your partner get stuck in conflict or feeling distant from one another? Are you struggling with job or parenting issues? I can help you get to the root of the problem by offering guidance, help you find remedies, and create a plan of action to start you in a new direction.
My focus is working with adults who are striving towards a healthier and happier version of themselves. In many cases life stressors, major changes, and relationship stress can impact our overall wellbeing and can lead to feeling overwhelmed and lost. My goal is to work along side you to build confidence, identify unhealthy patterns, learn to cope with difficult life transitions, and to incorporate healthy lifestyle changes into your daily life. I work primarily with adults who are experiencing anxiety, depression, shame, low self-esteem, and relationship issues.
Marriage & Family Therapist Associate, MA, AMFT, APCC
I work with a wide variety of people with varying mental health conditions. With individuals, I work with people experiencing effects of trauma, anxiety, phase of life changes, men's topics, depression, and anyone who is interested in deeper self reflection and understanding of self. With couples, I work with people struggling with communication, attuning and understanding one another, affairs/infidelity, sex and sexuality, and pre-marital counseling. If you are searching for relief from current symptoms and are seeking a deeper understanding of your self or your partner then I can help.
I have been working as a therapist in Southern California for eight years. I have worked with with a variety of cultures, ethnicities and socioeconomic statuses. Most of my experience has been working with the Hispanic/Latin American population. Previously I have worked with victims of violent crimes, childhood trauma and stress caused by transitions in life. Therefore I have experience working with dyads such as parent-child and couples. Also I have worked with adolescents and children.
Imagine for a moment feeling more calm and at ease, connected to your body-feeling like you understand yourself and can meet your own needs. What if you didn't have to hide or feel small anymore? Instead of the constant chatter that you are not good enough or the never ending battle with your nerves, consider what it would feel like to experience a calm body and quiet mind all while feeling energized, trusting yourself, sleeping great, feeling good in your body, and feeling more connected in your relationships.
Are you experiencing anxiety, depression or feeling lost? Are feelings of codependency, addiction or preoccupation crippling your ability to live your life to the fullest? Are you feeling overwhelmed and cannot currently identify your emotions? I am here to support you in self discovery and finding a way together to explore what may be blocking you from living your most authentic life.
Do you have losses that are causing pain? Losing a loved one, a relationship, a job, a home, a sense of self, a dream or good health brings a variety of challenging feelings. I can help. I provide a welcoming, warm and safe environment where you can process your feelings and begin to move forward.
There are many reasons why you might be looking for a therapist: help with a long term struggle, support during a current life situation, and/or your personal growth. Whatever your reasons, I know how important it is to find a therapist you can develop a solid relationship with.
In our work together we will come to understand more about what isn't working. You may be feeling stuck, sad, alone, consumed by rage, or unsatisfied.
You and I will work together to build a trusting and non-judgmental relationship where you feel safe to talk about yourself openly.
I work with people to help them create meaning and connection in their lives to achieve their goals. Each person has unique desires, goals, and values that are meaningful for them and contribute to their behavior. Human beings also share the same basic needs for living a life that is sustaining for health, safety, and wellbeing. A healthy curiosity to understand the reason for the development of our thinking patterns, respect for our feelings, and a willingness be open to new experiences with kindness to ourselves gives us courage to grow and change.
