Psychotherapy, Art Therapy, EMDR
Registered Associate Marriage & Family Therapist #127002
“When it comes to understanding our personal traumas and our relationships, there is no black and white, only a world of gray. I’ll meet you there.”
Growing up as a bisexual, first-generation Persian-American, with multi-racial parents and stepparents, navigating relationships with different languages, religions, and cultural customs is something I have known all my life. There is no “one size fits all” template and sometimes our personal values don’t fit neatly into the same categories as those we love the most, and I’m here to say, that’s okay!
My approach lies at the crux of transparency, creativity, and compassion — so that I may assist couples and individuals with bringing greater understanding into their past traumas, identities, relationships, and sexual issues. I believe that different personal, relational, and sexual adversities call for different strategic approaches; under the scope of my specialization in identity-affirming therapy, trauma, and relationship + sex counseling , I tend to utilize a mixture of Integrative Psychotherapies (EMDR, DBT, ACT), Narrative Therapy, and Emotionally-Focused talk therapy, with a liberal use of mindfulness & somatic techniques.
I am an Art Therapist and an EMDR clinician working towards full certification. I take a multifaceted approach to trauma counseling, relationship conflicts, and sexual issues from a perspective of open-mindedness and cultural humility.
I hold three degrees from Georgia State University and Loyola Marymount University with a B.A. Psychology, B.A. Sociology, and M.A. Marital and Family Therapy with specialization training in Art Therapy. I have worked with adults internationally and domestically in Buenos Aires, Argentina and Los Angeles, California where I worked with adolescents at Star View Adolescent Center, families and school-aged children at the Helen B. Landgarten Clinic, and offered trilingual (English, Farsi, Spanish) therapy at Single Parents of Power Domestic Violence Counseling Agency.
