I'm a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist ( LMFT #89372 ), who specializes in substance abuse addictions, domestic violence, anger management, HIV/AIDS, anxiety, women's issues and relationship obstacles.
My career as a therapist included working in a diverse range of settings: private sectors, community mental health centers, and non-profit organizations. The professional experience gained from these opportunities, in combination with my own personal growth, allow me to connect with my patients while helping them strengthen their relationships, have more clarity about their professional goals and have a deeper understanding of themselves.

More Info About My Practice
While providing psychotherapy to individuals, couples, adolescents, and groups, I integrate a unique collaboration of therapeutic approaches that meet the needs of my clients. These consist of psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness therapy, and solution-focused therapy.
The diversity of my professional, academic, volunteer, and life experiences and an ongoing commitment to helping others explore relationships, whether those relationships are with people (family, co-workers, partner) or things (food, money, alcohol), continually inspire my counseling practice. Aside from encouraging self-care and quieting the mind, my respect for others, compassion and gentle sense of humor, provide a safe environment for clients to express themselves in the healing process.
How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist
As an Assyrian/Armenian refugee who escaped Iran with my family to come to the United States, I traveled to various countries where I met a lot of traumatized people. While listening to their stories, I had great sympathy for them as I could see their pain and sorrow in their eyes. From that, I developed a passion for understanding people and the ability to connect with them on a deeper level. My passion grew into a stronger desire to assist people in their process of mental healing once I recognized my ability to give people hope just by listening.
