About

My clients have survived traumas big and small and have had experiences that no one should have. Now, they find themselves drained of the strengths they once drew from. Whether you are struggling with impostor syndrome, stuck in a life situation that you can't seem to get out of, or are confused or overwhelmed about the depth of your grief, you sense that you are ready to sit, heal, and move forward. While many around you know you as the strong one, this time, you don't think you can. You want a therapist who gets you, your struggle, and your resilience. You want healing on your own terms and I can fully facilitate that.
Some of my most meaningful work is with parents who come to therapy because they are worried their relationships with their parents is impacting their relationships with their child(ren). They are worried of harming their children in a similar way their parents harm them, or conversely that their fears might harmed their children in a different way.
My space is non-judgmental and accepting. My treatment specialization includes: Therapy for depression and anxiety, parenting struggles, struggles in relationships, work and career issues, stress management and conflict resolution

Dara Javid's Groups

Parents Group

This group supports parents who are trying to parent differently than they were parented. This includes helping break repetitive patterns of intergenerational trauma, and facilitating a nurturing, loving relationship with your children that is honest and committed to communication rather than punishment. If you feel motivated to build a loving and healthy relationship with your children, one that is different from your own childhood, this group is for you. Group therapy is a highly effective form of therapy. The group meets twice a week on Tuesdays 5:30 to 7 pm and Fridays from 12:00 to 1:30 pm.
