I come from the world of Narrative Post Modern Psychotherapy and have a practical, down to earth style with direct, candid conversation to keep the therapeutic relationship responsive to your needs. I work together with clients when designing short and long treatment plans, according to the diverse needs of individuals, couples and families. Since I am also a certified yoga therapist I am able to combine elements of advanced breath work with tools from Cognitive Behavioral therapy. Using this evidence based combination is often highly effective.

Our lives have been turned upside down, as a nation and as human beings. It is not only the fear of contracting the COVID-19 virus, the fear that someone we care about may succumb to the virus, but also our financial stability and the upheaval to our lives, what we considered normal has been suddenly torn asunder. As a species, humans are highly adaptable. And, we will adapt to this too. Please reach out for help during these very trying times. It's better to act sooner than to wait if you feel your mental health is taking a toll.

The clients I see in my practice range in age from 11-80. While each individual has their own story, there are common threads that seem to run through all of us. These threads include loneliness/isolation, anxiety about the future, addiction, the aftermath of heartbreak/loss, work/money stress, longing to understand one’s past, even worry over the ever-changing state of the world. These and other issues, while painful and often confusing, are actually the materials that create change and growth. This is the therapeutic process.

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.

Let’s get one thing straight, therapy is not going to fix you. It’s not going to fix you because you aren't broken. You are in pain, confused, hurt, uncertain, and struggling. The problem is not WHO you are, it is the ways in which you experience and interpret the world around you. The goal in therapy is to reframe the pain points by identifying the problematic thought patterns that perpetuate pain. It is about taking the narrative and identifying the behaviors and thoughts that are working for you and the ones that aren’t.

If you're a high-achieving individual with frequent or intense anxiety, you may feel discouraged and frustrated by your symptoms. Constant worry, obsessions, disrupted sleep and sudden anxiety attacks can be debilitating, even for the most competent person. I work with successful professionals, including physicians, attorneys, executives, creatives and entertainers, and their family members; I know it can be hard to seek help when you are used to solving your own problems. However, anxiety symptoms are very treatable when you work with a professional who offers the most effective approach.
