My Approach to Helping
You have taken the first step in your healing process which is awareness that you want to make a change in your life. Because only YOU have the power to create the life that feels peaceful, rewarding and meaningful to you. I applaud you for your courage to seek help. It is a privilege for me to work with you and to guide you in your journey. In 25+ years of my practice, I have experienced some of the most powerful changes that take place in the psychotherapeutic process. I believe everyone has the inner capacity to better themselves.
Each individual is unique that no one treatment modality will work for everyone. My diverse background and extensive training has allowed me to adapt to the needs of each individual, couple, and family. I utilize different modalities including cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic and play therapy in my treatment process.
I have extensive training and clinical experience working with couples in premarital, marital and divorce situations. I specialize in domestic violence and trauma. I am trilingual in Armenian,Turkish and English. In being a multicultural therapist, I have experience working with people from various cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds.
