It takes courage to live an authentic and meaningful life. Everyone desires to live a life that feels fulfilling and worthwhile. In my psychotherapy practice, in a very emphatic, safe and non jodgmental setting, together we explore your goals and process where you feel blocked and what you might begin to change in order to grow and thrive. I have over 20 years of experience working with children, adults, couples and families. Working through issues of parenting, divorce, relational conflicts, loss, life transitions, self esteem, eating disorders, depression and anxiety. I offer both long and short-term therapy.

I speak both Farsi & English and I’m familiar with Eastern and Western culture and their unique treatment modalities. I specialize in mindfulness and use meditation techniques to help clients live their best authentic self and life by establishing healthier coping mechanism.
