Do you need help and support managing your child behavior at home? Does your child display anger, hit, throw things, has tantrums, has a hard time with changes, cries, feels isolated and so on? Being a parent can be though, challenging yet rewarding. In addition to raising a child with behavioral problems, being a parent can be exhausting and stressful. Therapy can help children. Children can benefit from therapy by learning how to manage their anxiety and depressive moods, getting necessary support, improve relationship, manage stress, and regulate their moods. In therapy with children, I utilize both "play" and " art" therapy interventions in addition to other models to decrease behavior both at home and school setting. I also provide support to parents to strength parent-child relationship.

More Info About My Practice
I enjoy working with adults, adolescents and children, both English and Farsi speaking. In my earlier years I worked as a counselor in the Los Angeles Unified School District. I further developed my skills at the Behavioral Learning Center where I provided services to children with special needs. I have also worked as a therapist with teens in crisis. Over the years, I have worked with teens in a group home setting focusing on behavioral problem, legal issues, trauma and depression. Currently, I am an Outpatient Therapist at The Help Group providing individual and family therapy focusing on depression, anxiety, ASD, behavioral issues, suicide, trauma, relationship issues, low self esteem, homelessness and many more.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
I am an Iranian-American licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, who can provide you and your child with the tools you need to facilitate positive change. In a safe environment we will work together to reduce symptoms, such as depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, communication blocks, self-image, and much more. Together, you and I will work to build on your strengths while challenging negative beliefs. I work as a Cognitive Behavioral Therapist (CBT), though I borrow from other theories as well. With my younger clients I very often use play and art therapy. My office is centrally located in Sherman Oaks, CA., just off the 101 and 405 freeways.
