Through my own struggles as a young adult, I found a path to clinical psychology, driven by a passion to help others understand how their experiences shape their mental health and relationships. In therapy, I combine education, wisdom, and personal experience, prioritizing the therapeutic relationship as pivotal for change. From a client-centered approach, I create a safe space for you to feel heard and validated. I'm passionate about guiding individuals, youth, couples, and families through relationship and mental health difficulties, helping them rediscover hope and inner peace. My Persian-American background enriches my ability to connect with diverse clients.To read more about me click Here

The practice of psychotherapy always intrigued me and from a young age and I often found myself advocating to break the stigma concerning therapy. I knew I wanted to help others who struggled to find their voice in a world where they are often silenced. I take pride in my ability to attune to my clients and meet their needs while respecting where they are at in their journey.  To read more about me click Here

I became intrigued with people's emotions, the way they thought and behaved, and I was always interested in helping others. I knew whatever career path I took, I wanted to make sure I was helping both individuals and the communities I work in a s whole. I have had immense joy working with all types of individuals, children and families. The experience I have gained over the years has not only helped me grow as a person and clinician, but has helped me learn different ways to help each unique individual. Providing a safe and non-judgemental space for my clients to share their story and work on their goals is my biggest priority.

Ever since I was in middle school I knew I wanted to be a therapist. All of my friends who were seeking support or solutions would come to me with their problems. I found this to be my calling as I genuinely enjoyed actively listening, providing empathy, and offering different perspectives for my loved ones. As a therapist, it is my intention to make the therapeutic process as comfortable as possible. I understand that coming to therapy can be difficult, but it’s also a huge step in someone’s healing journey, and that deserves to be celebrated! I want to provide a safe space and build trusting relationships with my clients so that they feel confident in doing the work to accomplish their goals. To read more about me click Here

From a young age I learned that I had a heart to understand, listen, and empathize with those who were hurting. This eventually led me to study the field of psychology and encouraged me to take steps to better understand and develop the skills to journey alongside others. Now looking back, I can think of no other path that would better capture my heart and desire to see people heal and grow than to become a therapist. My primary goal in working with clients is to help them achieve more satisfying & fulfilling lives & relationships with others.

 My interest in psychology started when I was in high school when I started to become aware of the importance of mental health in both myself and those around me. Mental health was never talked about in my community due to cultural stigmas surrounding it. My goal as a therapist is to help give your struggles a voice and to support you through your journey, especially in times when we may feel alone. I hope to foster a safe, nonjudgemental space for you to express yourself and to feel seen and heard.  To read more about me click Here.

From a young age, my passion for understanding human connection was clear. With the age-old debate of nature vs. nurture in mind, my curiosities deepened while exploring the connection between genetics and early childhood experiences within the context of society and environment as primary influences. As a therapist my goal is to provide a safe space for processing all of life’s challenges. Figuratively speaking, the daily masks we wear can be exhausting. Despite how alone we may feel during these times, I am here to remind you that support is always available. To read more bout me click Here
