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.

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.

You are mad at yourself because once again you're in a relationship with a narcissist. Your partner was fun and charming, but now you realize that he/she; is only interested in himself, is incapable of recognizing their responsibility when things go wrong, angry most of the time, and often has terrifying rage episodes; tell you that you are the crazy one. You feel isolated and confused and longer able to trust your own reality. You mask the pain with alcohol, drugs, sex, over-spending, over-working, over-pleasing, and over-doing, but eventually, these ways of getting through bad days stop working. You want your life back.

Life doesn't come with instructions, and sometimes going through it on your own can be daunting. I enjoy working with adolescents, teens, and young adults presenting with relationship issues, finding personal authenticity, building self-esteem, and stress management. I find psychology and the human experience endlessly fascinating, and believe therapy can usher in change and transformation. The power of another holding you in highest regard when feeling most vulnerable is healing, and finding a person you trust to be with you in that space is a barrier in itself. My approach is strengths-based, genuine, and nonpathologizing.
