About

I work with children, adolescents, and adults with a variety of behavioral, mood, and anxiety issues, including depression, panic, social anxiety, ADHD, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. I also work with individuals to cope more effectively with life stressors and to grieve the situations that cannot be altered. The therapy process is collaborative; I listen intently to my clients symptoms and, empathically and non-judgmentally, I help them work through their pain to achieve their goals.
I teach practical life skills and techniques so that clients learn to make behavioral changes that transform their lives. My approach is supported by research and is time-limited. Clients who have been through years of therapy often say that they wished they had used this practical, skills-based approach sooner.
Like any other relationship, the therapeutic one requires a chemistry and I invite you to come in for a consultation to see if my approach feels like a “good fit.” I look forward to the possibility of working with you.

Nira S Nafisi's Groups

DBT Skills Group

I have extensive training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy and offer group DBT skills training. Individuals who attend my DBT groups are required to be in individual therapy; if their therapist is not well-versed in DBT, I will work collaboratively with them to reinforce the skills learned in my groups.

More about this group

Parents of Youth with Emotional Difficulties

This group is designed to help parents of individuals suffering with any kind of mental illness or emotion dysregulation. The groups are exclusively for parents and stress the learning of skills, in addition to receiving support. Parents have reported finding these skills helpful in learning how to manage, communicate and relate to their children (of any age). Parents also report that they find the skills helpful in their own lives as well. This group helps parents interact with their child in ways that decrease emotionality, increase effective communication, and enable a calmer homelife.
