Announcement icon I am a telehealth therapist accepting new clients.
Those I collaborate with have unique lived experiences connected to a variety of complex histories, outcomes, dynamics, and adaptive responses. They’re in search of a therapist who is resonant, attuned, and with the times; someone who can meet them in their intricacies and provide a safe space devoted to the exploration of their inner and outer worlds. My goal is to offer just that: to co-create therapeutic experiences that fully honor the entirety of a persons being - not just their symptoms, identified labels, and categorizations.
I operate from a trauma-informed, harm-reduction, social justice, and diversity-affirming lens. My specialities include (but are not limited to): trauma & complex trauma, addiction/substance use, anxiety, depression, identity-related concerns, relational volatility, depression, life transitions, mood instability, and spiritual/existential concerns.
One of the most sacred aspects of entering a therapeutic relationship is confidentiality. Offering a safe space to be authentically as you are without consequence is not only important to me as your therapist, but is essential to your healing journey. Please feel free to visit my website to learn more about me, my experience, focuses, and approaches.

Shayan Salar's Groups

Addiction Process Group

Addiction can be viewed along a spectrum of impulsive and compulsive behaviors that are consequential to several domains of a person's life. This is a 90-minute virtual process group specific to this idea. The identification with being an "addict" is not a requirement to enter. Discussions may include: past/present behavior, life events, trauma, exploration of ways to reduce harm, useful skills to incorporate, the healing process, coping with every-day stressors, self-help group values & experiences, clarification of personal values, community resources, and examination of the various functions of addiction. Please inquire for more details and to determine appropriateness for this group.
