Are you not quite sure what’s wrong? I’m here to work with you. My approach to therapy is eclectic and based on you and your goals.

How do you know if your sexual behavior is out of control? It's a subjective question that many men unfortunately wait until relationship, occupational or medical consequences accumulate before considering. I believe the most important person to evaluate concerns with regulating sexual behavior is the man experiencing the dilemma. I start with two basic questions: "What is your conflict with your sexual behavior?" and "What is your vision for your sexual health?" Since 2001, I have provided a safe, informed and confidential space for sexual health conversations with heterosexual, gay and bisexual men.

**Currently at capacity. Check back here for updates.** Rarely do we live life through a linear narrative. The highs and lows that we endure are all a part of the human experience. But for survivors of abuse, the low moments may be felt more often than not. Abuse-related trauma can have lasting effects on one’s mental wellbeing and hinder the ability to cope with stress, form positive relationships, and face challenges that lie ahead. Additionally, survivors may feel a sense of hopelessness when it comes to healing from the aftermath of trauma.

Hi, my name is Efraim Eshaghian. I have been in therapy myself, and I have come to realize what allows one to live the life he would like to live. We work on allowing the client to recognize his/her own solutions and path to greatness.
Welcome! I offer services related to psychotherapy, assessment, and consultation. I work with children, adolescents, and adults in a warm and supportive therapeutic relationship. Although I take an eclectic approach to therapy, my primary orientation is cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) with a focus on person-centered care. I also specialize in services related to psychological testing and assessment for children, adolescents and adults.
Supporting, encouraging, and comforting others has been an integral part of my journey, leading me on a path to a rich and rewarding career as a clinical social worker. I am passionate about supporting individuals reach their behavioral health, relational and spiritual goals! I have a special interest in working with women who are seeking support for depression, anxiety, trauma, loss, and grief (relationships, miscarriage, death of a loved one), low self-esteem, parenting, establishing healthy boundaries, spiritual issues, and relationships.
Life can be challenging at times. Whether it’s from patterns of thinking or behaving we’ve carried with us since childhood, or relationship dynamics we’ve forged, or hurdles we’ve encountered in our day-to-day journey, or lingering trauma, sometimes we can feel stuck. We may even lose a sense of our own identity along the way, and that “lost” feeling brings experiences of anxiety, stress, sadness, fear, physical struggles, or more. It can be helpful to find a safe space to explore our thoughts and feelings, and counseling can offer an objective perspective, thought-provoking questions, and help in discovering the way forward.
I offer a warmly collaborative, open, and at times, gently challenging approach to help you enhance your quality of life. My clients are busy, driven adults who feel "stuck" in their relationships and careers, and disconnected from themselves and others who matter most. Many report experiencing anxiety in various forms, imposter syndrome, excessive worry, and burnout. Since 2013, I have compassionately guided clients toward a higher sense of fulfillment, well-being, and overall functioning. Using integrative clinical approaches tailored to your specific needs, I will partner with you to create positive change.
