I'm told I'm warm, smart, and that I have a good sense of humor. (Sometimes my dog likes to sit in on sessions.) I believe therapy has got to change lives -- and be enjoyable. Unlike some therapists, I believe in setting goals and tracking progress. Why go to therapy without results? What's my specialty? Helping people free themselves from what holds them back. My approach combines Positive Psychology and CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) with mindfulness and a creative mix of the best approaches known to modern psychology.

You don't have to suffer from a severe psychological disorder to benefit from help. Sometimes, functional depression, anxiety, or stress can have a noticeable effect as well. You still function but life could definitely improve. It's just a little grayer, a little louder, little harder to handle. The noise in your brain may be a low chatter but it definitely takes up space. It depletes your energy and makes it just a little harder to manage. You're moody, you're tired, and you don't know how to fix it. When you spend so much time and energy managing your mental health you spend less time living. Let's change that.

Neurofeedback works best supported by Somatic Therapy. Parvin's multifaceted somatic approach with hand-on sacrocranial work and background in clinical psychology is a perfect preparation and compliment to Neurofeedback. The focus of her work is on facilitating a more balanced, wholesome state in the brain. With a new level of functioning, clients have a chance to develop new habits and accomplish new goals. Typical training sessions last 90 minutes. Sometimes shorter 50 minute sessions with only neurofeedback are warranted.

Thank you for taking a moment to read about me and my work. My approach uses insight and depth psychotherapy combined with Mindfulness within a framework of awareness of the body. When our living process becomes stuck, therapy can move it forward. If you feel stuck in repetitive behaviors, painful feelings, and recurring anxious thoughts, I want to help you to identify how you are bogged down, so you can feel better. I can help to re-focus a sense of purpose...a way to step into your life more completely. This may include taking action if feeling adrift, or bringing clarity to a relationship.

Tired of stress and worrying? Perhaps even panic? Body tension? A foggy mind? Are relationships affected? Can you imagine how freeing it would feel to be more in control of these intense thoughts/emotions? Be more at peace? These are realistic goals, which many of my clients achieve. Instead of avoiding people and situations, which limits them, they gradually start standing up for themselves. The more positive experiences they have, the more self-empowered they feel, daring to say or do things they really want to, be themselves and feel authentic. I can help you to achieve these goals in individual and/or couple sessions.
