You don't like your current state. You don't like your mood swings, you don't like your insecurity, you don't like that you feel stuck both physically and emotionally now in this pandemic. The world is changing so rapidly and everything is different. You know you're not the only one who's struggling and you want to be more positive, yet it still feels like you're the only one who’s out of place, left behind, and failing. You want to stop feeling this way, you want to change.

You’re drowning. The waves of life are crashing down hard, and every time you gasp for air, another wave is only seconds away. You thought you’d have it together by now. That you’d be happy, excited and know what you’re doing with your life, or at least have a clue where you’re going. Instead, you’re struggling to find the strength to get out of bed and to keep it together. You’re forcing smiles and niceties so often, friends would never know something was wrong – but most of the time, you’re hanging by a thread, bracing for the next thing that’ll send you into a spiral so deep and dark you’re never going to return.

We are at a time where compassion towards self is more important than ever. Life is overwhelming and complicated. Maybe you "have it all" but feel like something is missing or you are having issues communicating your needs. Many struggle with the idea of having symptoms of depression and anxiety internalizing the symptoms with being "crazy". I am here to remove the labels and have individuals be more aware of the symptoms you experience (fear, poor sleep and appetite, nervousness, sadness, negative thoughts, etc.) and treat them with compassion, reframing and safe coping skills to better improve your life.

Let’s begin working together towards change and finding new direction to your mental health growth. “Whenever you catch the fish it is fresh.” Persian proverb. I believe people deserve to be heard about their challenges, regardless of when they ask for help. I have always been fascinated with three main parts of human body: Brain, heart, and kidneys. My passion for therapy started when I was pursuing a career in nursing back in community college. During my first psychology course, it was evident to me that a healthy mind supersedes a healthy body. I’m an Associate Clinical Social Worker fluent in English, Armenian, and Farsi.

Therapy is an opportunity to rediscover what it feels like to be at home in yourself. It is a process of making the road by walking—of taking step after step to explore your experiences, beliefs, inner knowing, pain and hope in order to create a more meaningful and authentic life. My aim is to support you on this path through grounded presence, honesty and deep care.

I'm a licensed clinical psychologist, clinical supervisor, and psychoanalyst-in-training. I find great satisfaction in helping my patients connect with, and have compassion for, their deepest authentic selves. Many of my patients are adult children of parents with mood or personality disorders, addictions, or who for other reasons were neglectful, rageful, or highly critical and pressuring. While my specialties include working with other mental health professionals, enhancing creative performance in artists and lapsed artists, chronic illness, and trauma/PTSD, I truly enjoy working with a diverse spectrum of people and issues.

The human spirit has an amazing capacity for resilience, but sometimes it's too hard to access it on your own. When we encounter challenges and problems in relationships, in our workplaces, in our families, we can feel overwhelmed, hopeless, & stuck. It's not uncommon to feel depressed or anxious, or seek out unhealthy ways to function that mask the hurt. It's in situations like these that it takes great strength to reach out and ask for help--to seek someone to come alongside and enter into your experience; help shoulder the burden, and rediscover and connect with that resiliency.

I am a licensed clinical psychologist with 20+ years of experience who specializes in helping families cope with divorce. I also treat trauma victims from the perspective of helping them put the trauma within the narrative of their life, and understanding its' impact. It's important to understand the blueprint that is laid down early in our lives, and how we continue to operate consciously and unconsciously off that blueprint. Cultural differences on many levels are very important to understand and address in therapy. I work with children as well as adults.

Life is difficult. A dramatic life event, a body ravaged by addiction or illness, a symptom that defies an easy cure, a trauma that never quite allows life to move forward, or an emptiness that cannot be filled in the outer world may have forced you to go inward, searching for what is lost. It takes courage to reach out for help. I have been counseling people for over 30 years, and during our work together you will have the opportunity to touch into places where old wounds and new potential reside.

To put it simply, I love people. And what inspires me as a therapist is the opportunity to serve others through authentic connection and collaborative insight into clients' thoughts, feelings and actions. While drawn to cognitive behavioral and Mindfulness interventions, for me, providing a safe, warm and open relational component is key. Whether working with couples, individual adults or adolescents, and issues ranging from anxiety, depression, trauma, or sexuality, intimacy and interpersonal functioning, it is a privilege to hold your confidence and assist you in your journey towards integration and wellness.

What type of South Pasadena mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in South Pasadena?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
